In fact, a quick look at the newslist for the game will reveal that there has been no shortage of character announcements, and today is no different. Two new characters have been officially added to the game's roster: Omega Shenron and Gogeta.

Now that you have two more characters from which to pick, how does a new game mode sound? Also revealed was the new Villainous Mode. In this game mode, Towa has transformed Frieza, Cell, and Kid Buu among others into "Villainous" form, which provides an extra challenge to taking them down.
