BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe S.A.S today announced that DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE will be getting special editions for its fans biggest pleasure! The fighting game -coming on STEAM®, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox One and Xbox 360- is developed by the famed Japanese studio DIMPS, the team behind DRAGON BALL Z: Budokai games.

Fans pre-ordering the game, for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, will get several unique items for free! Those won’t be sold afterwards:

  • An amazing Shenron Black Metalcase
  • Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta as a Playable Character
  • 2 exclusive Frieza Soldier’s Battle Suites to customize the players’ Avatars: Gold & Crystal versions!

Warriors Pre-Ordering the game digitally (STEAM®, Xbox Marketplace and PlayStation®Network) will get all the above amazing items, minus the Metalcase!

To put on a marvellous spread and celebrate this new DRAGON BALL game in the best possible way, players will be able to get their hands on the “ Trunks’ Travel Edition” (for Consoles only):

  • TRUNKS MASTER STARS PIECE 25 cms Figurine (Exclusive Colouring)

With a gameplay taking back the licence to its roots, BANDAI NAMCO Games and DIMPS are proud to reveal a brand new mode where fighters will be able to gather and show who is the strongest warrior of the universe: the World Tournament aka the Budokai Tenkaichi! This brand new mode will be accessible through Toki Toki City and will allow players to take part into a massive frenzied brawl and crown a champion for special rewards! Will the players’ Avatars be strong enough to take down long-running Champions such as Hercule and Tien or fans’ favourite returning characters: Vegito, Goku in his Super Saiyan 3 and Super Saiyan 4 forms?!

DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE will be available in EMEA and Australasia for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft on 13th of February and on 17th of February for STEAM®.

An updated version of the previously-released three-minute promotional video showcases the Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta character in an additional ending screen:


Europe has been the exclusive home to certain “Collector’s Edition” versions of the games for some time now, with both Raging Blast and Raging Blast 2 and even the most recent Battle of Z, for example, receiving special versions with figures/statues, soundtrack CDs, downloadable content, and more.

Though the XENOVERSE pre-order DLC and characters are specifically noted as not being sold later on, Bandai Namco specifically told Kanzenshuu that there were “no plans” to release Super Saiyan Bardock and Super Vegetto — two on-disc/locked characters previously available as pre-order bonuses — for Battle of Z, and later released them for purchase worldwide.
