Dragon Ball Xenoverse has been out in the Land of the Rising Sun for over a week now. Players, not just in Japan, but other parts of the world have been able to get their hands on the Japanese version of the game. Two such players are Anime Games Online and SergioM3. In addition to the all ultimate attacks and all super attacks, they have created a hand full of other interesting videos.
The first is all playable characters, their costumes, and stages. The game has 46 playable characters and different variations of looks that players can unlock by playing the game. There are 48 in the video below because it contains the DLC Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta and Jaco the Space Patroller. If including the character players can create themselves, the number is actually 49 in the video. We know the roster will continue to increase through DLC in the coming weeks with GT Goku, Pan, and Trunks as three additional characters planned to make their way to the game.
Many have asked if players can change the color of their characters aura, and Bandai Namco has officially stated the answer to that is no. The aura color a character has at the start of the game will be the same they will have at the end. The only exception is for transformations, which can be seen below. Players, created or traditional, upon going Kaioken can have their aura temporarily red. The same thing for Saiyans who go Super Saiyan, their aura color can only temporarily change, but to yellow. Kaioken is classified as a special attack, while Super Saiyan is considered an ultimate attack.
The third video shows all of the different iconic costume sets players can equip to their custom created character. These costume sets are comprised of a shirt, pants, gloves, shoes, and an accessory. Each component of a costume can be obtained by playing through the game by doing the story mode, various side quests, and then ultimately purchasing them from the in-game store (which uses money you earned from the game, not real money). A few costumes you will see are for Salza from the Dragon Ball Z movie, Cooler’s Revenge (the thumbnail costume), Emperor Pilf’s costume, Goku’s Yardat costume, as well as Android 19 and 20, and Dabura’s costume to name a few.
One of the main components of costumes are accessories. These can range from things like sunglasses to Piccolo’s turban to a sword (that is only their for show). Some of the accessories you may see in the following video can also be seen in the costumes video above.
When in a bind, players can use what is known as an escape move (R2+L2+X on PS4/PS3) The video below shows Hercule attacking with his champ-level ferocity and the created character utilizing the escape move to avoid receiving further damage.
Last, but not least are throws (L1+O on PS4/PS3) for all traditional playable characters and created characters.
