Master Roshi has been confirmed as the next character arriving in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Unveiled in the Dragon Ball FighterZ Show, Master Roshi was confirmed as the third DLC character in Season 3 following Kefla and Goku Ultra Instinct. 

The trailer doesn’t show an awful lot of Roshi’s moves, although it’s great to see a fan favourite make it into the game. It’s not another Goku, at least.

The character itself will be released in September, with a full breakdown expected in a livestream within the same month. 


After the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour was cancelled for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bandai Namco has unveiled their online alternative titled Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championship.

The championship spans four countries split into five tournaments across Spain, France, USA West Coast, USA East Coast and Japan.

Each region’s tournament will consist of eight invited players, who will battle it out over seven days to decide who qualifies for playoffs. 

The top four from each region will qualify for playoffs, which will span an entire month before National Champions for each region are crowned in December.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championship begins in October, with the 40 invited fighters set to be announced in the next Dragon Ball FighterZ show in September. 

Elsewhere in the show, it was also confirmed a character balance update for Dragon Ball FighterZ will be coming in the future, while they’re also looking into ways to make online matches a smoother experience. 

The next Dragon Ball FighterZ show will air in September.
