Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment have announced that Dragon Ball Z favourites Cell and Piccolo will be available as playable characters in next-years 3D arena brawler JUMP FORCE when it releases onto the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

Cell: Created by Dr Gero to defeat Goku, Cell is an android from the future who has the powers and abilities of notable characters from Dragon Ball Z with abilities such as Goku, Krillin, Yamcha, Piccolo, Vegeta and Frieza. Cell also has the ability to regenerate just like Piccolo.

Piccolo: Originally an arch enemy of Goku before being reincarnated, Piccolo is a namekian living on earth who works alongside the humans to save earth from constant threat.

In addition to these two characters Bandai Namco Entertainment went on to reveal that three digital versions of the game are available to pre-order:

  • The Standard Edition
  • The Deluxe Edition – features the standard game as well as the characters pass – providing a further nine new DLC characters released post-launch, as well as four days early-access to each DLC.
  • The Ultimate Edition – contains all of the above, plus 16 additional t-shirts for your in-game avatar, a starter pack containing additional items and boosts as well as three days of early access to the full game before anyone else!

Players that pre-order any version of the game will also receive one additional lobby vehicle and three exclusive avatar costumes to use in-game.

JUMP FORCE is scheduled to be released on the 15th February 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC with both Physical and Digital Editions now available to pre-order worldwide.
