Thoughts on Android 18 in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Originally created to kill Goku, Android 18 has since joined the Z fighters and married Krillin. In Dragon Ball FighterZ, she fights alongside of her twin brother Android 17 and they attempt to stop the evil Android 21.

Having just reviewed it for Splitkick, it’s good to know first-hand that my concerns did not come to fruition. If you want to read my full review for it, head over to Splitkick and check it out now!

Created by the same team that brought us Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, the early word-on-the-street has been very positive.
