Straight off the back of the new trailer for Dragon Ball: Sparking! Zero, Bandai Namco has seemingly confirmed that the game will feature a whopping 164 playable character forms. We write 'seemingly' because the number itself hasn't actually been mentioned — but an official screenshot on the publisher's website shows what appears to be a character select screen, and there are a total of 164 panels (yes, we did count them).
Most of the panels are blank right now, but 24 of them are taken up by Goku and Vegeta, in all of their various powered-up forms. Other obvious combatants like Krillin, Piccolo, Yamcha, Cell, Trunks, Majin Buu, and Broly are also included.
Ever since it was announced last year, fans have been expecting Sparking! Zero to feature a massive roster. That's because it's a successor to the Budokai Tenkaichi games, which were known for their huge playable character lists. The last release to bear the name, Budokai Tenkaichi 3, had 161 character forms (with 98 individual characters) — so it looks like Sparking! Zero is going to beat the previous record.
