You remember the last Dragon Ball Xenoverse video game, right? It was the one wherein which you were tasked with going back through the Dragon Ball timeline in order to alter events that had been altered by an evil force in an attempt to change history so that the good guys lost and the bad guys won. You were some sort of time cop that had to alter and altered past so that it was no longer altered. Yeah, you know which one I’m talking about. Well, as it turns out, you didn’t alter enough! Well done, rookie, you screwed up! I want your gun, your badge, and your time travelling device on my desk. NOW! We can’t have big mistakes like this flying around our time precinct, the mayor of time is already up my arse because of the whole Back To The Future debacle, and now I’ve got to deal with this?!
Bandai Namco Entertainment recently featured a timer on a new website created specifically to house said timer which was counting down to a new Dragon Ball video game. As per usual; many people speculated about the reveal, and if you were one of the lucky few to have assumed it was going to be a sequel to Dragon Ball Xenoverse, then, well…you’re right. That’s about it. There’s no prize or anything. Sorry to mislead you. Once the timer hit zero, it was revealed that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is currently being developed, and it being scheduled for a worldwide release sometime before the end of the year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on the PC through Steam.
The game will be, once again, developed by DIMPS who have stated that this game is set to outdo the original in terms of an all around experience. That means the graphics will be more impressive, the combat mechanics will be polished, the customisation options will be increased, and the story will be more detailed. Alongside simply announcing the game, Bandai Namco Entertainment posted an announcement trailer which just so happens to feature a few of the cool little extras that will appear in this game, the most exciting of which, for me, is the ability to play through the History Of Trunks storyline. At least, this way…we wont have to see Gohan…die.
The game is said to feature at this year’s E3, so you can expect more to be revealed as a part of the festivities come this June. Until then…enjoy this awesome trailer!
