Bandai Namco has finally added the most influential and arguably important character from the popular Dragon Ball Super anime to the lineup of available characters to the game. It’s more of a surprise that it has taken as long as it has to announce SSGSS Goku (thats, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku for the uninformed) given their recent announcements of Beerus, Hit, and Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black as playable characters in the game.
I for one am super excited for the full release of this game, growing up watching dragon ball, Dragon ball z, and now Dragon Ball Super, this game more than any of the previous titles feels like the game we have all hoped and dreamed about when it comes to an aesthetically pleasing fighting game in the Dragonball universe. The look and the feel of the anime style, with the timed cutscenes related to specific events in the match are a thrill and I can’t wait to get my hands on the game on January 26th 2018

I would be even more excited if they took this same look and engine and remade one of my favorite games of all time growing up in Dragon Ball 3: Gokuden, which is really hard to find an english translation for but basically mixed Dragon ball fighting games with a card game to do battle against foes. The original game came out on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1989 and followed the exploits of a young Goku as he trains and prepares for his first worlds martial arts tournament.
Are you excited for this game? What game would you like to see remade from the past with this current art style?
