Cooler, the brother of Frieza, is coming to the ultra-popular fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ on Sept. 28, and in celebration of the release date announcement, Bandai Namco has a new gameplay trailer showing Cooler going head-to-head against your’s and my number one champion, Goku.
For those who don’t follow Dragon Ball canon or even the non-canon stuff, Cooler appears as the main villain of the fifth and sixth Dragon Ball Z movies. The Namek Saga and Frieza Saga embody Dragon Ball Z’s infamous reputation for dragging on for an eternity, and considering the extensive amount of time they were on the air in the early 90s, Toei Animation was able to crank out two films that sort-of-kind-of-maybe related to the events happening in the show at the time.
Cooler’s exploits exist outside of Dragon Ball’s official canon, and he never really emerged as a popular character in the way that Broly, the villain of the 8th, 10th, and 11th films, did.
If you own the game and want to play as Cooler, he’ll be available on Sept. 28. The universally praised game from Arc System Works is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Nintendo Switch version will be released on Sept. 28.
