A godly transformation.
Bandai Namco has officially confirmed that Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue form will be featured in the upcoming Jump Force fighting game.
Revealed on the official Bandai Namco Twitter account, Dragon Ball’s Goku will appear in his blue SSGSS (Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan) form. Though unconfirmed, it’s likely that Goku Super Saiyan Blue will simply be a powered up version of the Goku fighter, and not a separate fighter on the roster.
Bandai Namco Europe tweeted out the same image, but with a different caption, stating: “Goku will be able to unleash the power of the Super Saiyan Blue in Jump Force! Can you guess how to activate it? #unite2fight #jumpforce.”
In the anime, the transformation to Super Saiyan Blue occurs when the first Super Saiyan form combines with the power of a Super Saiyan God, suggesting this form will likely be accessible after Goku has transformed into his first Super Saiyan form in a fight.
