Jiren is arguably the most popular character in Dragon Ball Super. With the recent release of Dragon Ball FighterZ, it’s no surprise people are wondering if Jiren is in Dragon Ball FighterZ. If you’ve been curious about Jiren in Dragon Ball FighterZ, we’ve got some information for you that will probably let you down, but don’t lose hope just yet. Let’s take a look at how Jiren fits into Dragon Ball FighterZ.
Jiren in Dragon Ball FighterZ?
At the moment, Jiren is not a playable character in Dragon Ball FighterZ. While there have been rumors circulating about who the eight DLC characters are going to be, Bandai Namco and Arc System Works have yet to provide any real confirmation (expect that sometime in mid February). Even the rumors that we’ve heard don’t place Jiren in the list of DLC characters, so don’t get your hopes up for Jiren to make an appearance in the near future.
With that said, Jiren is an extremely popular Dragon Ball character. The fact that he’s not in Dragon Ball FighterZ at the moment is mainly due to how new he is to the Dragon Ball Super anime. The base roster and first round of DLC were planned out years ago, which was well before Jiren was introduced to the anime.
Don’t lose hope yet, while Bandai Namco has confirmed one season of DLC, the company has not confirmed or denied the potential of more DLC after the initial eight characters. That’s obviously nowhere near confirmation we’ll see a second season of DLC, but it’s not out of the question. If there does end up being a second season, Jiren would be on everyone’s list of potential DLC characters to make it into the roster.
