Nope! The roster is complete! (@BandaiNamcoUS) February 6, 2019THE WORLD punching Kakyoin through the stomach.
Goku – Obvious.
Naruto – Obvious
Luffy – Super obvious.
Frieza – I mean, why tho? Frieza’s iconic and all, but I’d rather someone else take the helm as Dragon Ball‘s main villain.
Zoro – Good.
Sasuke – Obvious.
Ichigo – A welcome surprise.
Aizen – See Ichigo’s section.
Rukia – Should have been playable in J-Stars.
Vegeta – Good, but a safe choice.
Sabo – I mean, why tho? Sure, Ace is dead and gone, but we don’t really need Sabo in this game.
Sanji – Cool.
Blackbeard – Okay, I would have probably preferred someone like Doflamingo or Katakuri, but whatever…
…Has he even appeared after the timeskip…?
Gon – Obvious
Hisoka – See Rukia’s section.
Kurapika – Fuck yes…
Killua – Obvious.
Yugi – Obviously, he should have been playable in J-Stars. They had his data ready and everything.
Yusuke – Sure, why not?
Toguro – Pretty obvious.
Pegasus Seiya – Because Brazilians.
Dragon Shiryuu – See Seiya’s section.
Kenshiro – I mean with all of the “Omae wa mou shinderu” memes going around, how could they NOT include Ken?
Plus, he was in J-Stars, too.
Ryo Saeba – Okay, never expected this guy, to be perfectly honest.
Kenshin & Shishio – Honestly, with the author’s recent… “problems”, these two would be the last two people on the roster. But glad they were anyway.
Cell – See Sabo’s section.
Piccolo – Has Piccolo had any sort of relevance after the Android Saga?
Asta – FUCK YES!!! HOLY SHIT! YES! YES! YES!!!!
Izuku – …my dream match can finally come true…. *drools*
Trunks – Alright.
Renji – Nice to see more Bleach reps.
Hancock – BUT WHY THO?! WHY?!
Kakashi – I mean, okay?
Gaara – See Sabo’s and Trunks’ sections
Kaguya – Really? Really? Seriously? Honestly? Truthfully? Madara seriously would’ve been a better choice!
Hell, OBITO would have been a better choice! Oh yeah, I fucking said it!
Boruto – Okay…
Dai – Seeing as how he was supposed to be in J-Stars, I’m not gonna complain.
Jotaro – You all know how I felt about that.
DIO – Well, he brought the steamroller, so…
Galena and Kane – Let’s be honest: nobody gives a single solitary shit about these two. I get Akira Toriyama designed them and all, but to be perfectly honest, if they’re designed for Dragon Ball, put them in a Dragon Ball game! Even if they’re discount versions of Mira and Towa, make Light Yagami the fucking villain! Come on!
Well, that’s my thoughts on the roster. All in all, I give it a 5/10, simply because it doesn’t scream “50th Anniversary Game Roster” it just screams, “Crossover Roster”, and that’s no good. But I will save the review for next Friday, when the game releases.
Stay Twisted, and… whatever, I guess.
