I’m fine with this game not covering anything from Super or the movies, but I wish it would’ve covered more than just the Z stuff.

I don't know why there's a baseball minigame, but fuck it, I'm in!
Most likely a reference to Gohan's high school days and the popular DBS baseball episode.
Didn't yamcha play baseball in a dbz filler too?
Yup, that's when his baseball career started. I think it's even his debut scene in Z.

A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I would like it to include Beerus and Whis as a final boss and maybe conclude the whole Goku journey as SSGod or in training for it, leaving the door open for a sequel to dive into the multiverse and godly powers.

RoF doesn't feel much like Z to me, with Gohan being an idiot, Buu being already out of comission like he would be for the entirety of Super, the children already being treated like well children, etc, so I wouldn't include it but BoG has that Z feeling, with Gotenks, Ultimate Gohan, Buu....

And those things stop it from 'feeling like z' how?

It would be a shame not to include some of the movies as side quests. Like imagine accidently finding DR. Wheelos ice fortress and it starting that whole story and stuff like that. It'd be real cool.

lol I was as vague as possible, wasn't I? I meant Gohan being weak and useless, Goten and Trunks being sidelined, and Buu's new last name being "fell asleep". In Z they sort of matter, in Super they really don't.

Also couldn't help but notice that at one point while flying around, there's a little area (near the fishing pond I believe) where Baba's face and a text box reading something like 'I can see things from the past' pop up. Curious if that's actually something or not too, especially since she's not at her palace there.
I wonder if this would let us play bits and pieces from the early Dragon Ball storyline or if it's just a replay mission mechanic.

Oh, man, playing baseball as Gohan, flying around Satan City as Great Saiyaman and even as the Golden Warrior(in base)... I can hardly wait

Thanks to hanfoi on gamefaqs. It is confirmed that Kaioken Goku is playable. Shaping up to be the best DBZ experience ever.

Why wouldn't he be?

They even have Gohan's sport outfit. Yet we apparently fight Raditz with the wrong outfit. I don't get it :lol:

That's been my gripe too. All the extra stuff they got all the fanservice in the world, but somehow missed Goku and his removed weights in the first fight...

That and the casual outfits (driving and pre-Cell Games). But I'm sure those are unlockables somewhere.

For all we know, part of the season pass could be additional outfits or something too. As far as I know, we've still had next to no details no that save for it being listed on Steam.
