Dragon Ball fans are hyped to jump back into the Budokai Tenkaichi series, often heralded as the pinnacle of DBZ fighting games. Now, with the upcoming Dragon Ball Sparking! ZERO, fans will once again be dominating as their favorite warriors — especially if your favorites are Goku and Vegeta.

That's 11 different forms for Goku, and 13 for Vegeta, including his Majin and Great Ape forms. If you've followed the series, through Z or Super, you'll know that each of these forms comes with a variety of different attacks and strengths. Vegeta (Z - Scouter), for example, won't have access to any Super Saiyan abilities — same with Goku (Z - Early). 

However, when the characters start getting into their Super era, e.g. Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, we know things are gonna get silly in the best possible way. We'll be happily blasting Kamehamehas and Final Flashes for as long as possible, and no doubt our other Z-Warriors will be joing the fight in the future. Orange Piccolo, anyone? 

Dragon Ball Sparking! ZERO will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
