The hottest news is the new playable characters: SSGSS Goku, SSGSS Vegeta, Android 16 and Android 18. Almost certainly SSGSS Goku and Vegeta will be added as separate characters instead of transformations. Almost because there are a few inaccuracies. SSGSS Vegeta has different icon than default Vegeta, but both Goku and Vegeta have outfits known from Dragon Ball Z, not Dragon Ball Super. All new characters will have new super attacks. SSGSS Goku can use 10x God Kamehameha, SSGSS Vegeta can use Final Flash, Android 16 can use Hell’s Flash, and Android 18 can use Accel Dance which will summons Android 17. No information about Android 17 as a separate playable character.

Weekly Jump also reveals that we can expect a story mode involving a revived Android 16 where "super warriors fall one by one". We don't know much about this mode except that it'll be a new story for Goku and rest of warriors presented with high-end animation.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 2.5D fighting game that uses a three-vs-three team battle system that incorporates ultra high-speed battles and flashy moves that the Dragon Ball series is known for. The game is being developed by Arc System Works and will be released by Bandai Namco for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018.
