The game’s gonna be playable at MadFest next month in Melbourne. Gonna try and get my hands on it. I’ll let ya’ll know what it’s like. I get the feeling it’s going to be the same demo from E3.

Looks that way with the distinctive hair and color. As if the driving episode couldn't get any more absurd. :lol:

It's our first look at Bonyu, the rejected Ginyu Force member designed by Toriyama. Otherwise, we'll have to wait for further, accurate translations.

So some the filler episodes from the original anime will make an appearance. Neat! Hopefully the movie villains will appear as secret side bosses or something, like Broly appearing as one during the 10 day wait of the Cell Games.

I really appreciate that they're adding in a plot line with Gohan and 16. That's something that I felt the manga definitely needed. This game is looking more and more promising.

Also the drivers licence filler episode is a mission 11/10 best game ever made.

Cell Saga trailer up and we have driving outside of the filler episode and a meal time minigame.

Damn, that was actually a really touching trailer. I got chills. :lol: Wasn't expecting that. All the story stuff looks fantastic.

The only thing I'm slightly disappointed over is that, going by that screenshot, Goku and Piccolo will just wear their normal gis to the driving lesson. I was hoping Piccolo could wear his postboy clothes :lol:

We'll get the Time Chamber! and probably help Gohan achieve SS, and who knows? maybe even Gotenks SS3

The SS car ride seems to be from the Cell Games waiting period.

The WAKU WAKU levels of this game are awesome

At first, I was worried hearing that there was an ex female Ginyu force member, but after seeing her design, I'm relieved she's not overtly sexualized waifu bait or a cartoonish fat girl joke character. She looks great and adds some variety of female body shapes, I'm just wondering what they will do with her. I'm not sure if this is an excuse to add to the female quota of the game *cough*Android 21 *cough* or if she'll actually add something substantive to the story.

It's pretty exciting that a side story of Gohan and 16 in a video game is going to bring new context to one of the most beloved scenes in the franchise. Love living in another dbz game Renaissance, we had some dark times before xenoverse came along.
I'm the opposite really, as I feel like there doesn't need to be extra context for that scene at all.
Yeah I'm on the same boat.
There's nothing to add, all the game will bring is redundancy or cheapen the scene. Weirder is, what does this offer for a game? Will this be a bird watching mini-game or something...

Driving school mini-game is welcome, it's material more interesting and with more potential.
Isn't a minor complaint lodged against this scene that Gohan has no real connection to 16 and so it doesn't really make sense that he is the one that sends him over the edge? I'm excited for the extra content none the less but I can see your point of view. If it's done poorly yes it is going to mar the scene slightly for me.

Also new trailer looks pretty good. Training room segments look great, when was the last time we got Goku and Gohan in those outfits!

I don't know, Goku looks like a retard. It is hard to be OK with character models after what FighterZ did :(

I'll admit that the shot of Goku when he's about to teleport away from Earth with Cell looks pretty off (there's something really weird with his face and neck there), but beyond that, everything else in the game looks fine to me.

And I'll say it again as I've said before - expecting every game to look just like FighterZ is ludicrous. It was never going to happen, nor does it need to.

Honestly the only thing holding back this game for me is the gameplay.

Seems like no other developer will come close to what ASW did with DBFZ, but that doesn't mean other developers can't make good DBZ games. I like everything else.

I'm really impressed with the amount of faithfulness and dedication from CyberConnect2. It many not be the best DBZ game, but it may the best DBZ simulator.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

It's really offputting to me how green the cell saga arena is during the Gohan fight. It should be mostly dust and desert once Cell destroys the ring. Some parts are really faithful and then some aren't unfortunately, like Goku wearing shoes in the Raditz fight.

Gotta say, that latest trailer almost won me over, that and the new character reveal! She looks like a combonation of BerryBlue and Chilai, but in a good way. She seems fiesty, in a grown woman kind of way!

I'm just still worried about the game play.. looks fun but mashing "O" to do everything is not my twist at all.
It's not too late. One day, it will be.
