The European branch of Bandai Namco has announced that the upcoming Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 will be available 28 October 2016. A new trailer for the game showcases different villains teaming up, such as Tullece (from Dragon Ball Z Movie 3) sharing the fruit from the Shinsei-ju with Slug (from Dragon Ball Z Movie 4). Different scenarios are also shown, such as Bardock watching a fight between “Super Saiyan Blue” Son Goku and Golden Freeza. Other confirmations include a Super Saiyan 3 transformation for avatar characters, as well as Janenba (from Dragon Ball Z Movie 12), and the likely return of Mira and Towa judging by Trunks’ narration.

Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is set for release in Japan this winter, with a 2016 release planned for international territories.

The original Dragon Ball XENOVERSE, developed by Dimps for Bandai Namco, was announced in May 2014 and launched in February 2015 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) internationally. The game saw a user-created character teaming up with Trunks and the Kaiōshin of Time to correct anomalies and disruptions to the timeline caused by the villains Mira, Towa, and Demigra. As of February 2016, the game had shipped over three million copies worldwide.

    Oh good, so it won’t come out during the high traffic months of November and February. As promising as this franchise is, it would have been stomped by Persona 5 and ME Andromeda.
