Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to release on Friday. Bandai Namco looks to have done a tremendous job on the game, impressing us here at Shacknews, in particular. But what's better than a 3v3 game where Goku and Vegeta come to virtual blows? How about the voices of Goku and Vegeta coming to virtual blows?
On January 10, FUNimation announced that the voice of Goku (Sean Schemmel) and the voice of Vegeta (Christopher Sabat) would do combat in Dragon Ball FighterZ the night prior to the game's worldwide release. That night is tonight. The long-time voice actors are set to go one-on-one, live from the Esports Arena in Santa Ana, CA in a livestream that begins at 7PM PT.
Both men have been trained extensively going into this battle. Schemmel has called in the coaching services of fighting game legend Justin Wong. Meanwhile, Sabat has been learning under the tutelage of NetherRealm fighting game pro Carl "Perfect Legend" White.
