Android 17 finally joins DBFZ as standalone fighter, Halloween goodies teased

Soon, Android 17 fans will be able to take the Tournament of Power MVP into battle with his own unique move-set.


Android 17 was a part of the Dragon Ball FighterZ experience as an extension of Android 18's moveset, but he's finally entering the competition of his own accord. Check out the character trailer for Universe 7's Tournament of Power MVP and look out for his release in the near future.

The character evolved a great deal throughout the Dragon Ball series and the version we're getting in DBFZ is described as follows in the press release:

During his initial introduction into the DRAGON BALL universe, Android 17 was known to be a reckless anarchist, a trouble maker, and a real heel. After experiencing death and being brought back to life by Shenron, his brush with great-beyond caused Android 17 to take-on a life of peace and obscurity.

The press release also reveals some pre-Halloween plans for players. Starting on September 26, 2018, players will be able to unlock Z Capsule content filled with exclusive versions of lobby characters, Halloween Z Stamps, and alternative Halloween colored outfits for playable characters. Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
