Anime fans got pumped Sunday when Dragon Ball Fighter Z was revealed at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. Despite a lack of gameplay footage, the concept of an actually good DBZ fighting game was enough to get people hyped up.

And then, on Monday, gameplay footage began to be released. And guys? It looks so, so very dope.

Dragon Ball Fighter Z is a 3v3 fighter that looks to share a lineage with the Marvel vs. Capcom games, crazy effects and wild supers alike. It is being developed by Arc Systems, the minds behind the BlazBlue and Guilty Gear series, as well as Persona 4 Arena.

Six characters for the upcoming fighter have been revealed: Goku, Adult Trunks, Vegeta, Majin Buu, Frieza (in his final form), and Perfect Cell. No release date has been announced for the game.
