As shown in the schedule, there’ll be a showcase for Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta who will be Dragon Ball FighterZ’s next DLC fighter.
It sounds there’ll be more announcements too. The official website states the closing ceremony will see “announcements made from various Dragon Ball games”, so could there be more to come from Dragon Ball Z Kakarot or Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2?
