That's the problem, as the initial concept of Xenoverse is flawed to begin with. The only transformation you get is hair swap for Saiyans, but for characters that change body size, they are separate characters. Basically, the whole roster is made in the same customizable way your CAC is, with just Buu and Namekian swapping models and sizes, but everyone else is recolor.
Even for Saiyans, the only hair change is color. Period. The only state that changes the hair at all is SS3, and it's the same SS3 hair for every character, male and female, regardless of which hair style you've chosen. I made this point years ago, that Dragonball Online
had transformable hair for every hair style. How is it that over a decade later they haven't been able to do better? That it takes the Fan Modding Community
to give people what they want. Which they have been doing for years and is really the only reason to get it on PC.
My most favorite thing were the transformations in Raging Blast series. Like Cooler for example.
Xenoverse got a huge following for basically just making your unique character, but everything else for me is stepdown from Raging Blast series... from character models, transformations but even the combat system and that the game are basically avatars with separate roster of attacks that can be assigned to anyone and costumes. And that's it!
A valid point that many people point out is that the characters have locked customization in roster because they are basically a story mode NPCs and one of the strongest features of this game would have been a huge what if customization option, where you could assign everything to anyone.
Wasn't it in RB2 where you could set the combat skills not just for each character, but each transformation they had as well? Which allowed you to vary your attack options and patterns in battle by just adjusting which form you were using. Something which would've greatly benefited players in XV as well. Especially Freeza Race CaC's since it could've been used to give them Transformation Sequences by utilizing the different race outfits and allowing them to set the head/body type options for each form. Instead we only get Golden Form which looks horrendous with some race outfits since it doesn't change the color of certain ones. So you could have the purple/gold color scheme for much of it, then have bright teal arms and legs that look utterly out of place with it.

The Xenoverses have been a very particular type of game. You partake in old battles but with a TWIST. Any sequel would just be the same but different twisted scenerios from the first two ... hopefully.
The only thing I hope for, is that being that we have all the characters, all the locations, and all the VAs, give me a straight forward retelling of everything. I'd even accept it if most of it were just text and not voiced.
Any proper sequel should push to have more of an original story that the previous installment. The bit about correcting some parts of history should just be the intro to how it all works. It should then veer from that into what giving people the power to change and alter history does to them. It was barely touched upon in XV2 when Trunks broke protocol and went to save Future Gohan, which would've caused a deviation in the timeline. An event in his life that he should've moved on from. But having the ability to "correct" history can invariably corrupt people.
Hence I didn't want to just see Fu and a revived Towa and Mira leading the Time Breakers in their own personal efforts in a sequel. But a 3rd faction made up of former Time Patrollers who stole the ships and resources to try and "correct" all of history itself. To wipe out all forms of evil across time and space before it ever manifests. Like, what would happen if Freeza was killed before destroying Planet Vegeta? Well, all the Saiyans are spared their fate and, thanks to DB Minus and DBS Broly, Bardock would retrieve Kakarot from Earth and raise him as a Saiyan. Good, right? Well no, since King Vegeta would then have free reign to begin conquering planets and- oh wait,no, because King Cold is still around. Thus you need to kill him too. And then you'd have to kill King Vegeta because of his ambitions. But wait, the Saiyans are an aggressive warrior race who would go in search of conquest and battle with or without King Vegeta. I guess Beerus was right and all the Saiyans gotta get genocided like Freeza initially intended.
You can see how insane and complex things can get from just making one decision on how a story would play out if you changed just one thing. If you have this, then you'd now have the Patrollers working to stop the Breakers and this splinter group of righteous Correctors, all fighting for different reasons and purposes. Not only that, but it'd be nice if Players could then choose a Faction to perform missions for. Hell, they could bring in Aios from SDBH as the one backing the Correctors in an effort to create a singular, perfect timeline without evil.
