Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will have over 70 playable characters including Super Saiyan God Goku. "Super Saiyan God Goku is a very important character in the movie [Battle of Gods]. In terms of character balance, I am trying to make God Goku a little bit stronger than the other characters, but we are still working on balance," producer Shuhei Sekii said to Siliconera.
Sekii also explained characters in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z are split into four different types: fighting, ki blast, support, and interference. These 23 characters are confirmed for the game:
Super Saiyan Goku
Burter (also Interference)
Frieza Second Form
Full Power Frieza
Super Saiyan God Goku
Ki Blast Type
Picollo (also Interference)
Captain Ginyu (also Support)
Frieza First Form (also Interference)
Frieza Third Form
Frieza Final Form (also Interference)
Krillin (also Interference)
Yamcha (also Interference)
Concept art hints that Bills, the main antagonist in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, will be in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z too. You can also see Future Trunks,
Kid Trunks Super Saiyan Kid Gohan, Boo, Broly, and Cell too, but we kind of expected those characters to be in the game.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita in 2014.
