Bandai Namco today began shipping Dragon Ball Xenoverse for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360, leaving owners of a Nintendo system out in the cold with the biggest DBZ game ever created. Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the first DBZ game to appear on the next-gen consoles.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse takes the DBZ franchise in a totally different direction, as as time-traveling villains Towa and Mira have created temporal distortions in the past as part of their evil plot to spread chaos and alter Dragon Ball history. With the help of Trunks, players must travel through this altered history with their own custom-created character and intervene in crucial historical Dragon Ball events to restore the modern-day reality.
Because much of Dragon Ball Xenoverse takes place in the past, gamers are able to participate in some of the most famous battles against powerful Saiyan warriors and fearsome enemies including Vegeta, Frieza and Cell.
Battles are fast-paced and powerful, and old and new characters alike are available. For instance, there’s a deity called the Supreme Kai of Time, and a bird with powerful energy called Tokitoki who can produce time. Breaking previous Dragon Ball game conventions, Dragon Ball Xenoverse features a new world setup featuring the mysterious and futuristic Tokitoki City that will be the central hub for players from around the world to fight, quest and have fun together.
The PC version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be available Feb. 27.
