At its E3 reveal earlier this month, Dragon Ball FighterZ had only six fighters: Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. This week we get one additional character: Future Trunks.
As Siliconera reports, the latest issue of Famitsu shows a screenshot of the character in action, performing what looks to be a super move. Future Trunks is the son of Bulma and Vegeta from another timeline, wherein Androids 17 and 18 have turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. After realizing his current world is likely doomed, Trunks travels back in time to warn the Goku of the main timeline about the impending Android threat. He’s also pretty good with a sword.

Trunks is a pretty safe and likely pick for the roster, so I don’t think anyone was losing sleep over his inclusion. I’m curious to see what future characters will be announced, though.
