This past weekend two events took place in the great continent of Europe and the king of anime games, Bandai Namco Games, was at both to show Dragon Ball Xenoverse! First off, they were at the London MCM Expo in the United Kingdom and secondly they were at the Milan Games Week convention in Italy. A presentation for Xenoverse took place, confirming there will be a final count of five races in the game – Human, Saiyan, Frieza’s Race, Majin, and Namekian. Also mentioned was that a total of 300 players can engage online in the hub of Toki Toki City. Take a look at the presentation in the video below. It begins at the 3:44 mark, before that, the game’s second trailer plays.
The rest of the presentation is pretty much a summary of what we already know. For example, players will be able to select a master from the manga to help train them to take on all of the missions and challenges in the game. Goku, Vegeta, or Frieza are three characters from a selection of many from the Dragon Ball manga who can be your custom character’s master. The skills you learn and the training you endure will vary depending on the master you have chosen, but each master’s style will be reflected by you in combat. The screenshots below show Goku training a custom character and then that custom character showing off the Kamehameha he learned.
Also shown are a few gameplays of Goku and Vegeta from the PS4 version of the game.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be making it’s way to the PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. It will offer in-game transformations, characters with the most detailed facial expressions ever seen in the Dragon Ball universe and new cel shaded graphics. Players will be able to create their own character and take it into battle to fight against familiar faces from the world of Dragon Ball and the created characters of other players online. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse is in development by Dimps (the company behind the Budokai series) and will be published by Bandai Namco Games in Japan on February 5th, Europe on February 13th and North America on February 17th.
