Probably a reveal of Broly (Super) as i bet they would like to hold off on having to spoiler Gogeta for as long as possible
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)

Are we expecting anything this month? I think at best we might get a first tease of Broly 2.0.

We will get something, but it will most likely be related to more figures

Just ordered this game off Amazon and it'll be here tomorrow. I went on a weird route where I've been playing Dragon Quest XI which put me in a Toriyama mood and got me back into DB again, but now I'm really behind with Xenoverse 2 since I'm sure everyone else has played it to death.

I'm just wondering, I heard they improved on the grind of the first game by making item drops less random - but how reliable is it? How many times do you tend to have to redo a mission to get the thing you wanted?

Well, sometimes it drops instantly, at other times I'd say it takes 3 to 5 times. Of course you can get unlucky and it takes over 10 times (but that's rare for me) since it's still random after all, but not as bad anymore. And at least now when you hit the secret conditions the additinal parts for the Ultimate Finish trigger to 100%, so it's less of a gamble than in XV1.

I still can't believe we never got shirtless Jiren or an upgraded version of UI, or Omen.

Definitely much less of a grind (for the most part). Unless you're trying to get Gigantic Burst in the most recent DLC; that skill will drive you insane waiting for it to drop. :crazy:
Jokes aside though, there really is a lot less grinding overall. As Xaroc said, sometimes you can get unlucky, but usually it won't be too insane.
Also, if you're getting it on PS4, don't worry about being behind. It's still pretty active online (can't speak for the other systems, though), and even without other players you can do most of the content with AI partners.
Hope you enjoy it!

We'll probably have to wait for hackers (or data mining) to figure out what's it for.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

New story mode chapters? The Future Trunks ending was pretty good, better than even the anime version in its own way. But with Kefla, Jiren, and Goku Ultra Instinct, it just seems like the next story mode will either be ToP or more crossovers with the multiverse as a whole.

Not sure the ToP would really work in this game. Unless you got rid of flying (which would take some real adjustments to the fighting mechanics), the stage would basically be a re-skin of Kami's Lookout. And it's not really the sort of event you can tamper with since Zeno and the Grand Priest are right there observing. They might do some Broly story though.

Are we still supposed to be getting any more songs to the Anime Music Pack? I've seen the instrumental version of Ultimate Battle uploaded to YouTube supposedly from the Xenoverse 2 files

Every even-numbered DLC has been the story one so far with the odd numbers setting the foundation. Hope it's more Infinite History-style missions

Hopefully the next DLC brings Bardock's outfit from Dragon Ball Minus as well, though I don't like it that much, I'd prefer it to be there, just like Time Breaker Bardock should have an alternate outfit for the partially broken mask too.

Luckily enough we also get Super Saiyan God Vegeta too.

The only 2 characters found in the files were Broly and Gogeta so we'll probably have to wait till XV3 for SsjG Vegeta which hopefully won't be that long.

Still really triggered that there aren't enough slots to buy all the figures....

Hoping next update changes that.

They are throwing away money from whales who buy to medals (not me I farm) who would collect them all of o could, they have no reason not to do this.

Can someone (who is fluent) do the community a favour and maybe tweet in Japanese to Dimps or whatever? Western fans aren't listened to (see raid times and announcements) If they don't do it in the next (last?) Update they probably never will so time is of the essence...
Yamcha almost certainly did not cheat on Bulma:
He was afraid of Women, Bulma was the flirty one.
Yamcha wanted to get married (it was his gonna be his wish)
He suggested they settle down in the Trunks saga.
Alternate future Trunks is not a reliable source.
Toriyama wanted new SSJ Kids and not make new characters.

Jiren's base attack still needs to tweeked up. Especially since his ultimate, which did quite a bit before the last update, got heavily nerfed. He is playable on the higher difficulties, but the lack of base damage really holds him back. Making it hard to complete missions on time. Or even a Super Soul that buffs his stats or something.

Yeah, it wouldn't be a bad idea to lower some other stat (maybe Ki Supers or stamina) in favor of buffing his basic attack a bit, considering his skills, barring Power Rush, don't pack a whole lot of damage even at their peak (i.e. CAC builds that max them out).

Speaking of Power Rush, I think it should have remained a one-shot move since it came out. It requires 10 ki bars and removes all your buffs (not just Meditation if you use it, but fighting poses and any other power up skills too), so for it to only do... 14k damage nowadays? That feels like a ripoff to me. If Jiren himself is built around setting up that move (hence his aforementioned low basic attack), might as well have the move actually worth the setup!

On a related note, Godly Display (Ultra Instinct Gokū's ultimate) got a nerf in the most recent update as well, which was pretty unnecessary in my opinion. He's quite hard to maintain both offline and online, but that ultimate was a good way to get a payoff out of the... rather careful playstyle you're more or less forced to take on as him. Above all, it's not even available for CACs, so it makes even less sense to nerf it.

Anyway, as for this bit:
Or even a Super Soul that buffs his stats or something.
This could work if we got some kind of update that adds some missing Super costumes, even with some new skills and Super Souls. Namely, a shirtless Jiren (with a more series-accurate moveset); along with a halo costume for Golden Freeza (throw in one for his final form too), #18's tracksuit, maybe a bangless Gohan, definitely a new Cabba with Super Saiyan 2... and above all, an Ultra Instinct Omen variation for UI Gokū.
(Also, Super Saiyan for ROF Gokū and Vegeta? Please? :D)

All that is honestly a huge stretch, but I do think it's something that at least could be done without taking away from XV3; unlike, say, possible Tournament of Power or DBS Broli story additions, or some of the "missing" characters (like Caulifla and Kale or mid-forms for Freeza and Cell).

What do you all think the story mode will be if we get one.

Far too many characters to do a viable ToP.

I really really hope legend patrol is bundled in but I doubt it.

Probably just more random scenarios for the fu missions. Maybe a tease for XV 3.

Hopefully an extension to how many models you can store on the Colosseum.

My wishlist:

Colosseum storage expansion.
Chaozu
Minus Bardock
More mentor customisations better stats on mentors.
More story mode/explaining super trunks vs xeno trunks/current definitive timelines explanation.
Why no extra Towas and Mira's but extra dabras across the timelines....

It will probably be an original story using the new Broly and Gogeta. Probably something involving Fu screwing around with the timeline. We might get an answer to what happened to Bardock at the end of the main quests, but it would be the TV special Bardock rather than the Broly Movie / Minus Bardock. Since the game will likely only include one form for Broly, they'll have to pad out the story somehow so we're not fighting the same Broly over and over.
