On Twitter, Bandai Namco’s official account posted a picture of a note from Android 17 asking Goten and Trunks to “take care of the animals” while he is away.
Since DLC characters have always been added to FighterZ in pairs, players can expect to add both Android 17 and Cooler to their teams on September 27.
Android 17 will be available individually for $5 and is included in the FighterZ Pass.
MINOR SPOILERS FOR THE FINAL ARC OF DRAGON BALL SUPER!
In the final arc of Dragon Ball Super, leading up to the Tournament of Power, Goku (who is searching for powerful warriors to compete in the Tournament) finds Android 17 on an island, defending endangered wildlife against poachers.
While 17 is originally hesitant to abandon his post, Goku was able to convince 17 to allow Goten and Trunks to defend the island in his place, so 17 could participate in the Tournament.
