Following an earlier report that the next Dragon Ball FighterZ character would be Merged Zamasu, Bandai Namco has confirmed the alternate-future villain will be arriving as simply Zamasu.
The Dragon Ball Super character was the primary antagonist of the future Trunks saga with a godly power that made him invincible to those who fought him. Zamasu will be the latest character in the Dragon Ball Super story to appear in Dragon Ball FighterZ as a playable fighter behind Hit and Goku Black.

It is hard to get a grip on his fighting style just from the screenshots, but most shots indicate a focus on beam attacks and zoning. Seeing how Merged Zamasu fought in the anime, there is plenty of room for variety. Not only that, but we have seen Merged Zamasu as a character before in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 so you can get a good idea of what Zamasu may be capable of doing.
With Zamasu’s announcement, there is still no indication whether another character will join him as a pair or if Zamasu will be released by himself. Earlier reports indicated that Zamasu will be joined by Vegito Blue, but there is yet to be any official word on the matter.
The two available DLC characters, Bardock and Broly, focus on fast movement and slow super-armor attacks respectively. It is also not yet known when Zamasu would be available, but Bandai Namco’s Twitter account simply says “Soon” when pressed for a date.
Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s season pass is $35 with the two released DLC characters selling for $5 each.
