I definitely would. Would open up heaps of narrative stuff as well. Get a few world tournaments with different results.

Would be really awesome to play on what happens if goku wins against Jackie chun which is against roshis plan to keep him off the top and motivated.

Yeah! Would provide really interesting ideas considering how early it is. Goku would be a slacker on top, the Red Ribbon might control part of the Dragon Earth, Daimao may have destroyed West City after all, etc.

There'd be a lot of cool stories they could use, I really wanna see King Piccolo with Slug interrupting and stealing his wish for youth, so you could potentially fight him with his giant form later on, Goku and Android 8 at muscle tower, then bring in the other Androids there to attempt to kill Goku for a big Android fight, and other things. I just need muh Dragon Ball in there.

Besides for power levels they increase them so much in story mode to where even Hercule gets powered up to give your character a challenge, anything's possible. They make Dark Yamcha seem like one of the strongest guys ever in the game lol

I would like them to bring back the what if story of #16 going back in time to kill Goku during the RR Army arc. It would fit well into Xenoverse.

Do Krillin, Yamcha and Tien not count as OG Dragon Ball?

They move over to DBZ, learn how to fly, and get stronger (to an extent).

The power scaling is incredibly messed up in xv2 (ill always point to base vegeta beating super janemba), at this point you just need to ignore it and have fun with the narrative possibilities.

A dark powerup can bring anyone up to speed.

I remember playing with Dragon Ball characters and Arale in Tenkaichi 3 but that rubbed me off the wrong way, I don't know what it was exactly, it just didn't feel like those characters should have been included in a 3D over-the-shoulder game. DB/Arale are more suitable for 2D/2.5D.

Xenoverse 2 is a joke and bad cash grab.
Kid Goku, Roshi, King Piccolo and Mercenary Tao or Arale deserved to be in this game.
The same goes for Baby Vegeta that was requested by many people for a very long time. No one care for ape form if you can't play it.

While i can obviously understand adding UI or Jiren, existence of Frost, Champa and Vados in this game is a joke. Waste of space.

So now that Tao is in Legends using a jetpack, I take back what I've said about DB characters not flying since Dimps can make them have jets to fly, but I STILL do think that some DB characters do not fit in the Xenoverse concept, like Nam using a jetpack would be so out of character for him. The ones I that I see are worthy for a future Xenoverse sequel are Tao, Roshi, King Piccolo, Kid Goku, Android 8, Grandpa Gohan, and Devilman. The rest of them are just too out of the loop.

Because nobody uses them and they barely have any variety in moves. They could've taken out the Saibamen, Cell Jr, Frieza Soldiers, and Appule and replace them with Kid Goku, King Piccolo, Garlic Jr, and Baby Vegeta. And it's not like Dimps haven't been shafting characters before, Zarbon and Dodoria didn't return in for the rest of the Budokai series after the first one and the Saiabamen and Cell Jrs were unplayable minion characters in Budokai 1 & 2, which was how it should've been in Xenoverse tbh.

At this point, the only characters who "deserve" to be in a game are most Z characters and some movie characters because they are staple characters in video games. Db and DBGT dont matter as much and DBS is slowly becoming a staple in the games.
I called it that Gogeta, Bardock, and something Broly related would be in the movie before it was even announced that it was a Broly movie. 8)

So, they have no reason to get rid of them?If nobody uses them, there's no reason to get rid of them. If people do use them, there's no reason to get rid of them. There is nothing gained by getting rid of them, so what is the point of getting rid of them? Also, you complain about them having little variety in their moves, only then suggest replacing them with the likes of Kid Goku and Piccolo, who we basically have.

Kid Goku from DB does not fight the same as the one from GT. Unlike the GT Goku, the DB one can use his power pole for regular combos, as he did in the series. And what makes you think that King Piccolo would be a waste when he fights differently than his son too?

To get past the can't fly problem, give them jetpacks like Mr. Satan. I think in DB Legends Mercenary Tao has a jetpack as well anyway, proving my point, there's no reason not to.

If they were to include any DB characters the most important characters they'd need would be Kid Goku, Mercenary Tao and King Piccolo.
For semi-important characters I'd got with General Blue, Grandpa Gohan and Tambourine.
Some nice other characters to include would be Chi-Chi (23rd World Tournament), Kid Krillin, Nam, Android 8, Bandages and Spike.
I'd love to see Arale as well with a Penguin Village stage, that'd be amazing. Plus she's appeared in Super twice, once as a cameo, the other a full blown episode.

EDIT - Add Yamcha's original outfit as well plus, even though they're not exclusive to DB, we need Master Roshi and Yajirobe, even if not Yajirobe, Master Roshi is a must, especially participating as a fighter in two arcs of Super.

Kid Goku could fly using either a nimbus or his tail like a helicopter propeller while Roshi could use the turtle in XV2. I’m pretty sure King Piccolo can already fly and so can Tambourine.

So with Kid Goku, Master Roshi, General Tao (with Cyborg Tao preset), King Piccolo, Tambourine, and dragon ball versions of Tien, Yamcha, and Krillin as presets, we’re good.

And yet XV2 is was the highest grossing db game before FighterZ i believe.

And I'm sure you’re probably gonna buy XV3.
