Arc System Works and Bandai Namco’s “Dragon Ball FighterZ” is set to release the GT version of Son Goku this May 9. However, some Nintendo Switch players already have their hands on this new character. Here’s what we know about this development.

As seen on Twitter, searching up “Goku GT” will already show you some footage of the new character. The Dragonball GT version of Son Goku is him as a small child. 

His special moves seem to focus more mobility and utility rather than dishing out raw power against his foes. So far, the Nintendo Switch version only provides access for this character, which can't be played on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions yet.

Interestingly, Kid Goku has access to his old Power Pole weapon from back in the early Dragon Ball" arcs in the 80s. The stick extends on will, which provides Goku (GT) some extra reach despite his small size. Historically, Goku stopped using this weapon as he grew older and often relied on his Saiyan powers and heritage to fight foes.

As seen on lexxlluthor's Twitter post, Kid Goku has a lot of special moves that can be used in mid-air. Meanwhile, DCB | Vato's post showed one of his special aerial moves that blasts him to multiple directions.

The new character also has two Level 3 supers, which are both usable in mid-air. The Dragon Fist Explosion super turns him to the Super Saiyan 4 form which was exclusive to the GT series. Meanwhile, the Super Ultra Spirit Bomb makes Goku (GT) chuck a medium-sized Spirit Bomb, which can be followed up after it hits.

However, we’ll have to wait for the game's full release on platforms on May 9.

Kid Goku is the third character to be released in the Season 2 set of “Dragon Ball FighterZ” DLC. Three more are to be released, namely Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta, the “Dragonball Super” movie version of Broly and an unspecified character. Major patches may also be pushed out to accommodate these new characters and overhaul the whole feel of the gameplay system.

For now, we’ll have to wait for next set of announcements from the two developers to know who they’re adding and when.
