I have to say I'm a bit worried that the game is gonna be released this year. I was expecting the game to get a 2017 release, so I'm guessing that the game is gonna drop somewhere between November and September. This would mean that a beta, if the game is gonna have one, is going to have to begin some time in the next month or two.

I think Fall/Winter 2016 is likely for Xenoverse 2. I think having it out late summer when they just announce it in this month would be a bad idea. A lot of content would be cut out due to timing which hurt games like Burst Limit. It won't surprise me if the Champa saga is left out of the main story mode. At least we will hear their English voices before the show gets dubbed like we did with Jaco.
I know...that's why I said either late summer or christmas. I'm also sure that at best we're getting Champa, Frost and Cabba as DLC. I'm crossing fingers for Magetta but hopes are not getting up on this.
Going on hiatus. Too much stuff in RL to deal with for me to keep up with posts here for now. Was fun, hope you all have a nice day and future! Volt signing off.

You guys, we might need to start a movement for them to give us a real chat system. I'm afraid they'll keep the same "chat system" because of the Pegi 12 rating, but that shouldn't matter at all, since game's like Club Penguin have real chat systems and it's a game made for very small children. If this game is going to be a bigger mmo than it was before, and more like Dragon Ball Online, we NEED a good chat system. Please help make this an issue!

Probably December or November, but even that might be to early.

While I agree we need a new Chat system, this game is not trying to be an MMO, but a fighting game with MMO elements. I would love for them to come out with a new MMO like DBO, but I think this is as close as we'll get. With that being said, I'm super hyped for this game. Flying around Toki Toki city will be nice (hoping that's not just a cut scene, that would be cruel.)

Things I hope to see in the new game.

1. More transformations and CaC options (Super Namek and Ascended Saiyan would be great!)
2. Hair that actually changes when you transform.
3. Remove stats from clothes.
4. Open World type missions

They haven't released an anime game during the fall for years now so chances are they just want fans to get hyped for this then in a few months they'll delay it to 2017.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Predictable, but Bandai did the smartest move. More money is coming.

Surprised the game will still come out this year, though.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

Actually it's kind of confirmed that the avatars will have more transformations, and the Saiyans will have Super Saiyan 3, or has everyone already forgotten that interview which was said that "in a next time, we plan to make available the Super Saiyan 3 for the avatars as well!"?

Too bad Xenoverse 2 won't be available for PlayStation 3, so I'll have to buy it for PC, although I don't like PC system, neither do I know much of it.

Well it could be out this year because they could have been working on it since February of last year when XV1 released and given the ending the story mode had. The fact that it still had DLC coming to it which the last one was for RoF and I think that DLC was in June if I'm not mistaken. I wouldn't be too worried about the release date. It would most likely come out in December anyways or get pushed up to February either way I'm sure this game has been in the works for a long time.

Do you maybe have a link for that interview?

About the "Future Gohan has two arms and wrong hair" thing: he's also pointed in the wrong direction. Future Trunks is standing in the right place, but Future Gohan's feet should be pointed towards the camera/viewer (at least that's the way it was in the Future Trunks Special). Maybe that's one of the changed possible "wrong" future timelines? (even more "wrong" than Future Trunks "regular" bad future). Or it will be updated/corrected later in another trailer.

Anyway, I'm so hyped. I love Xenoverse, but there are things, characters and stories missing and now we probably going to get them and more things to customize your own characters (ki color would be nice). I hope so much that we can now fight with our own characters against our other own characters offline (kinda creating our very own stories). And I want Cooler and Bebi Vegeta (all forms if possible). Well... actually there sooo many things I want to be in this game.

XV2 will definitely be another game on a long list of games I just have to get in 2016/17.

November would be the worst time to release the game, because as far the video game calendar is concerned, Call Of Duty owns that month. December would be more ideal.

Maybe it's because someone killed Future Gohan early, and Adult Gohan is playing dead so Trunks will still go Super Saiyan. Speaking of which, I really hope they start really messing around with the timestream this time around so that it doesn't just become 'Xenoverse but with the events that weren't in the first game.' I'm hoping for crazy shit like Adult Gohan having a rematch with Cell or Goten fighting Tao while posing as Kid Goku. The actual DB characters time traveling was the biggest thing missing from the first game for me.

I just noticed this. It says protect the past, the future and outcomes you wished were different.

Dose that mean you may have to actively enforce some of the dark elements of the story a well as the good? Will you have to kill Future Gohan to save history or at least stop Trunks from trying to save him?

Yeah, being able to form a team of your own characters for questing would add much more reason to level up alts.

Aaaaaah! I'm so excited! :D

Zarbon and Dodoria! That's gotta be a sign that they're including more characters from canon (right?), so maybe I can hope to see 16, 19, 20, 2nd and 3rd form Freeza and Imperfect + Semi Cell as well this time around! And the showed Turles and Lord Slug! Not my favourite movie villains, but maybe it means that Cooler, Bojack and Janemba might show up! Show me a pre-order button on Steam omg I need it
I wonder what "outcomes you wish were different" really means though. It could mean as much as a massive branching storyline where everything you do impacts the story, but I doubt that, as it'd probably push the release date back to 2018. It can mean a select few changes, such as sparing Bardock and/or Future Gohan. Possibly something GT-related as well. Can I choose to send another set of three people into space then

I'm hoping for:
Characters! Oh, so many characters.
No RNG drop shenanigans
No stat clothing
Story related to Super

I bet we'll get to know more at E3. I can't wait!

That's it. You know, Gohan was supposed to fall differently into the puddle, so when the Androids attack him lethaly, you have to somehow force his fall into the puddle so he is lying the same way as in the anime special.
That is genius!

I wonder, if Mira returns. I also wonder, how much more will be the past messed up or if we will just replay the Xenoverse 1 missions (On the other hand, good for newcomers).
I would love all the movies and Dragon Ball content, with Baby Vegeta from GT added to GT instead of just Baby Oozaru. The Xenoverse GT roster felt somehow weird without him and GT Trunks was somehow unnecesary.
And please, bring in Teen Future Trunks and long haired Trunks :)

Can't stand waiting for E3. Any chance of spoilerific Japanese magazines?

So I'm glad this is only on next-gen and PC only. The game looks really good already and I'm sure it will run and play really good. Even in the trailer, the models look great and they're a huge step up from XV1.

well I'm really looking forward to this, looks like movie villains will make an appearance which is always good. Hopefully the drop/loot feature is totally removed or revamped cause that was a pain in the first one.


also will they fix the GT Goku Voice in English and make it less cringe worthy?

Call of Duty lost a lot of hype over the years for being the same. It's nowhere near the powerhouse it used to be
