Video game publisher Bandai Namco Games have revealed that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the sequel to Dimp’s 2015 Dragon Ball Xenoverse, will be releasing in North American regions on October 25 and in European regions on October 27, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There will also be a Steam release on October 27.
The game itself is a direct sequel to 2015’s Dragon Ball Xenoverse and is once again developed by Dimps, who produced the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable, and Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit for the PlayStation 3. The game retains the full 3D fighting movement and destructible environments from the previous game. Many elements from the previous title, such as masters, skills and racial bonuses, have been expanded upon in the sequel.
The game is now set in Conton City, an expanded version of the first game’s hub Toki-Toki City. Players will be able to meet a different version of Trunks as part of the Time Patrol, where he will send the player back in time in order to fix the time distortions. Here is where the player can create their own character in a similar premise to Dragon Ball Online. Players can choose the race of their character from Earthling, Namekian, Majin and Frieza. In some areas of the Conton City hub, players will be able to fly around. The hub will also now support up 300 players per instance.
In addition to the updated features, the game will include more playable characters from many of the franchise’s films and spin-offs. First of all, are Gogeta and Janemba from Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn:
