3v3 fighting game title Dragon Ball FighterZ saw an unexpected leak during its World Tour Finals on January 27, with the release of four new characters.

Amidst the Final Summoning’s Losers’ Quarter-Final came a rumbling in the Twitch chat – the game’s Season Two trailer had already dropped ahead of time.

While the video was quickly removed following the accidental leak, fans had already reuploaded the content to various social media platforms, giving players a glimpse into the upcoming season.

The trailer in question shows a slew of highly anticipated characters for the fighting game title, including the likes of Jiren, who was previously teased as part of the Season Two lineup thanks to a Tweet published by Bandai Namco EU on January 16.

Videl is also set to join the fight, alongside ‘Saiyaman’ Gohan in a fun-filled tag-team matchup that fans of the anime are sure to appreciate.

Bandai NamcoDragon Ball FighterZ will see the addition of Jiren, Videl, Gogeta, and DBS Broly.

That wasn’t the end of the reveals, either; Dragon Ball Super Broly and Gogeta are also set to join the roster, following their appearance in the recent Dragon Ball Super: Broly film.

Two additional characters are set to join the fight at a later date, although their identities remain a mystery – for now.

The Dragon Ball World Tour Finals are currently throwing down at the Red Bull Final Summoning in Los Angeles, California, after a grueling last-chance-qualifier that saw four players fight their way to the Top 8 bracket on Sunday, January 27.

Bandai NamcoGogeta and DBS Broly make their appearance in the game following the showing of the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film in theaters.

Pokemon Go is celebrating Gen II ‘mon Phanpy on January 26. The special Spotlight Hour will give players a chance to catch the adorable Gold & Silver elephant in a rare Shiny form, and more.

Niantic is closing out the first month of 2021 with a celebration of the Johto region. Pokemon Go players are getting a chance to re-experience the 1998 RPG with special in-game events.

January’s final spotlight hour fittingly highlights beloved second generation elephant, Phanpy. The 60-minute celebration is also giving Trainers the chance to build up Candy with a transfer bonus.

Pokemon Go Phanpy Spotlight Hour date & start time

Phanpy’s event kicks off the same day as the Johto Celebration makes its debut on January 26. Like all previous Spotlight Hours, the limited-time event will begin at 6PM and end at 7PM local time.

Trainers who log in during this time will see a massively boosted rate of the Gen II Pokemon. Those participating will even be able to run into its rare Shiny variant. Evolving one into a Donphan is pretty epic – so keep an eye out!

Even those not looking for more of the cute elephant will want to jump in as the week’s mystery bonus is actually incredibly useful with a boosted Candy rate.

Pokemon Go Mystery Hour bonus

For January’s final mystery hour, players will get a 2x transfer Candy boost. This actually applies to all characters, so those hanging onto multiple Pokemon will want to offload their duplicates for twice the Candy.

There are some pretty hefty evolution requirements for some ‘mon, making this the perfect time to build up the Candy you need to evolve them. Trainers also looking to strengthen their monsters should take advantage of this hour.

Many will be out trying to get a head start on completing their Johto collection anyway, so utilizing the Spotlight Hour’s 2x transfer Candy is a quick way to get a Typhlosion or Feraligatr.

As the first month of 2021 wraps up, Niantic is getting players ready for the Kanto Tour which launches on February 20. The Gen I event will celebrate Pokemon’s 25th anniversary.
