Here's our first look at Base Goku gameplay in Dragon Ball FighterZ

All about that base.

Bandai Namco has released a gameplay video showing off Base Goku, one of two DLC characters coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ in August.

Base Goku has his Super Spirit Bomb and arrives on his Kinto'un, aka the Flying Nimbus, the magical, yellow cloud he uses to get around. Base Goku can also go Kaioken, which lets him access new combos and power up when his allies are downed.

The second DLC character coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ in August is Base Vegeta, who uses his Galick Gun and the Galaxy Breaker super.

I have mixed feelings about the addition of base versions of two characters already in the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. On one hand, high level players will enjoy the nuance offered by an alternative take on Goku and Vegeta. On the other, more casual players might have hoped for more unique characters as paid DLC to help add variety to an already samey roster.

Four of the eight DLC characters that form the FighterZ Pass are already out. Base Goku and Base Vegeta brings the current total to six, which means two are left to reveal.
