Dragon Ball Xenoverse: Game Producer Interview Shows New Footage

Bandai Namco Games America has today released a new video for Dragon Ball Xenoverse! It’s not gameplay, but instead an interview where Joseph Kartje from Bandai Namco Games America talks to Dragon Ball Xenoverse’s producer Masayuki Hirano about how familiar characters have turned villainous, the altered storyline, working with the Dragon Ball series creator Akira Toriyama, and more! The interview took place a few weeks ago at the Jump Festa 2015 event in Japan and also shows some new footage from the game, which starts about one minute in, uncluding you (the created character) being summoned by Time Patrol Trunks and scenes from Raditz’s battle with Goku, Piccolo, and Gohan from the Dragon Ball storyline.


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, North America on February 24th, and Europe on February 27th.
