Dragon Ball FighterZ is shaping up to be a very impressive take on the still incredibly popular anime and manga property. A mostly traditional 2D-style fighting game crafted by Guilty Gear and BlazBlue developer Arc System Works, it's due to release on PlayStation 4 on the 26th January, 2018.

As Dragon Ball fans will know, the franchise has a catalogue of unique and interesting characters that the game can pull from, but which fighters have actually made the cut? We'd put together this handy guide on which characters will be included, and we'll be updating it whenever someone new is added.
