I rewatched both sagas on youtube and they were still only slightly different than they were in the anime.
Piccolo doesn't get poisoned by frost, which is different, but he steps out so Vegeta can continue his fight with Cabba like in the anime/manga. Cabba doesn't even react to Piccolo, and neither does Frost when he saves us. There were so many ways they could have made Piccolo relevant, but I wouldn't call the route they went innovative.
Vegeta doesn't knock Cabba out, which is different, but he still goes Blue only to lose to Hit so Goku can have their fight.
I will admit that the Player and Goku fighting purple Cabba, Frost, and Hit isn't part of the story, but isn't that standard for Xenoverse? It wasn't a bad thing for Xenoverse 1, or 2's base game since they didn't get a lot of time to work on it, but am I really wrong for expecting a little more for the DLC?
As for the Black arc: I'll admit the way Trunks got his spirit sword was different and better than in the anime, but the actual story and the way Zamasu got defeated was barely any different than what we're used to. Goku Black and Zamasu just turned more and more purple until the final fight ended.
Besides the spirit sword, the other thing I remember was those movie villains popping out of the sky portal, but can that really be considered a good thing? I wouldn't say so, infact, I'd say it's the perfect example of this game's wasted potential. Only Turles was able to talk and interact with the world and the ordeal wasn't brought up again after the fight. They could have been Saibamen or even removed entirely and the story wouldn't have changed one bit.
I agree with this, which is unfortunate. CC2 tried really hard with Naruto, and you can tell with just about every character in all 3 games, but with Kakarot it seems like they only got paid to to care about the Buu saga.Grimlock wrote: ↑Fri Jan 08, 2021 5:31 pmNot even Dragon Ball Z Kakarot achieved that. I always wanted to see what Cyber Connect2 could make out of Dragon Ball, but I still feel Naruto games (mainly Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4) is leagues better in all aspects. A pity. If they have an opportunity to work on another Dragon Ball game, hopefully the results end up better than Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. When it comes to models, I feel like they are off, especially Goku's hair (also, if they market the game by having Toriyama's tidbits again, they end up being more interesting and somewhat more substantial...).
The only way would be making the CG from the cutscenes into the actual graphics... I doubt Dimps would do that, though.
I don't think every cutscene or ultimate attack (if they add them) In Xenoverse 3 needs to look like that though.
