'Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2' release date in 2016 on all major consoles but with PS4 Japan exclusivity


The much-awaited sequel to the “Dragon Ball Xenoverse” video game will be released sometime later this year according to Bandai Namco.

The announcement came from the trailer video released by the game publisher making it known that the “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2” will finally arrive on major platforms such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft PC all via Steam. However, homeland Japan will be the only one to have the exclusivity in terms of the PS4 variant of the game.

The anticipation for the role-playing video game was immensely intensified as Bandai Namco launched a timer on their website signaling that a huge announcement from the Japanese company is about to happen. After the timer expired and the trailer was released, the temporarily used website which was made in collaboration with Toei Animation studio has gone offline and has now started to redirect clickers to the official website of “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.”

Rumor has it that the follow-up game from last year will carry over the overall structure of its predecessors. This way, it will allow players to take part in the evolving events within the “Dragon Ball” timeline depending on their liking. They will have the last say whether to bring back the established history or forget it entirely.

“Dragon Ball Xenoverse” came out last year, February for all major consoles including PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The game is almost all set within 3D battle arenas which are reminiscent of the Dragon Ball universe.

The game also allows gamers to customize their playable character’s race, gender, facial hair and body features as well as clothing and even voice effects. Interestingly, the game also has an online multiplayer mode which can be accessed via the Toki-Toki city.

It will be curious enough to know much of the sequel game will inherit from its predecessor but with the success that the “Dragon Ball Xenoverse” accumulated, the sophomore iteration has massive expectations riding on its shoulders.
