This year, Dragon Ball Z fans won’t just get to play yet again as their favourite characters, but will be able to rehash the exact same story for the umpteenth time as a brand new character. Which should make things different. Sort of. Maybe. Anyway, details after the jump/nine episodes.
Dragon Ball: Xenoverse is the name of the game that the mysterious new fighter will pop up in. A fighter that the Bandai Namco press release describes as being from the future and wearing perhaps way too many pieces of clothing from various characters:
In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, the mysterious fighter will be allowed to blast his way into multiple famous battles from Dragon Ball’s illustrious history! Thanks this, gamers will be presented with an unpredictable ‘DRAGON BALL’ experience; perhaps rewriting DRAGON BALL history as we know it! However, numerous questions still remain unanswered, such as: Who is this mysterious stranger wearing the scouter? What is the story behind this new character and why is he talking to Trunks? What is the purpose behind this mysterious room?
Many more secrets will be unveiled over the coming weeks and months as we move ever closer to launching Dragon Ball: Xenoverse… The Future of Dragon Ball promises to be exciting for fans!
Well at least he has awesome hair, which is a massive prerequisite for designing any new character in the Dragon Ball Z franchise. Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be Kame-Hame-Haing at ya soon on PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
