Original Dragon Ball Not In Dragon Ball Xenoverse News  Dragon Ball Xenoverse Bandai Namco

It appears Dragon Ball Xenoverse will mostly focus on Dragon Ball Z and some of GT, as the original series is not included

J-Patrol had a chance to interview Tony who is the Community Manager at Bandai Namco Games Europe. He was kind enough to answer several questions from fans about Dragon Ball Xenoverse.

One of the biggest revelations about Dragon Ball Xenoverse is that the original Dragon Ball series will not be featured in the game at all. Tony said that there will be no characters or even stages from the original Dragon Ball series.

The main story of Dragon Ball Xenoverse mostly focuses on events from the Dragon Ball Z timeline. Even the events from the recent movie “Battle of Gods” is added too.

Tony did say however that there is to be more characters to be revealed from the Dragon Ball GT series. He said he wasn’t able to share who they are yet, but they could be revealed soon prior to the game’s release this February.

In terms of stages, Tony revealed there will be at least 20 stages (or more) in the final build of Dragon Ball Xenoverse. He kept quiet about the number of fighters that will be included and told people to just wait to find out for themselves.

    It’s not a total bad thing if characters from Dragonball won’t appear in the game. When the first Budokai came out, all we had was the Saiyan Saga up to the Cell Saga. Sure it seemed like a bit of a rip off, but we had things included such as the Legend of Hercule mode that turned out to be good and hilarious. So I’m sure us Super fans can be comfortable with the amount of characters that Xenoverse will bring. Only one month to go! Aww yeah!

    • Mohammed Rehman

      XD yea…. SSJ4 Goku will be in the game and vegito and MORE

      • Jasen K

        Yeah. Everyone is going to love the GT characters.

        • Mohammed Rehman

          There will be 49 or 50 trophies for PS4 and PS3. There will be over 70 characters(i think)

          • Jasen K

            Yeah. I checked that out on another site. Well, the trophy achievements anyway. 70 characters sounds nice. I hope that doesn’t include transformations.

          • Mohammed Rehman

            Theydo include transformation vegito = Super Vegito and others.

        • Ruben Perez

          I hope ssj4 Gogeta will be playable

          • Mohammed Rehman

            Actually SSJ 4 Gogeta will NOT be in XENOVERSE but vegito will but I normally call Vegito Vegtable :P

          • Joel

            Gogeta ssj4 is a playable character u have to wish him with th dragon balls

          • Dragon ball Xenoverse

            Super saiyan 4 Gojeta is in Dragon ball xenoverse stupid….

        • Dan

          Sarcasm?

          • Jasen K

            I don’t get your meaning, kiddo. Someone say something sarcastic?

    • DopeisJay

      Yeah and the only reason why it only went to the Cell Saga In Budokai 1 was because the show had not gotten to the Buu Saga in America yet :D

      • Jasen K

        That was the reason? Oh well thanks. And here I’m thinking since DBZ finally came on PS2, they could only do so much. But then Burst Limit came out and it did the same thing so I’m thinking, oh come on. Ha ha. Well thanks for telling me that man. That makes sense.

    • Rou

      Super suckers is more like it. The New people who took over this game made it boring as hell, dragonball games need death now after tis mediocre game

  • lulzprime

    Kinda sucks. I mean I love the DBZ saga throughout, but there needs to be love for the original DB saga too as the DBZ story has been done to death.

    Hopefuly for an expansion of the DB saga though, but seeing as they didn’t include it then I don’t see it ever happening.

    • Mohammed Rehman

      Dude it gets boring with the same old same old sagas its good that DIMPS created it differently compared go the other DBZ Games plus XENOVERSE Has GT story in the game.

      • lulzprime

        Uhm… when was the last time there was a console DBZ game with the original DB story in it? lol.

        • Mohammed Rehman

          Burst limit(Frieza Saga abd Cell Saga) Ultimate Tekaichi(Frieza saga Cell saga and majin saga and special saga) Battle Of Z( Frieza saga, Cell saga, Majin Saga and special saga)

          • lulzprime

            Wtf are you talking about?

            I’m talking about the DB saga – kid Goku, Piccolo Daimao, Roshi, kid Krillin, etc. NOT DBZ. Learn to effin’ read.

            Gosh people these days are illiterate.

          • Mohammed Rehman

            Stfu Noob u need to keep ur fucking mouth shut becuz its annoying. And people can wreck u even me.

          • BerryAJ

            Haha that kid is retarded. Made himself look like a complete jackass.

          • Kai Jayd

            The last time i saw a original db charecter was about….tenkaichi 3! Hah, that was pretty far

          • Xizziano

            Yea me 2

          • Xizziano

            Tenkaichi 3 had original db only as far as i know

          • lulzprime

            True and that’s over 7 years ago. That’s why it’s time for a DBZ game to feature the original DB story as there is a lot of charm there that ironically, many DBZ games didn’t get to experience.

        • Rou

          This guy is literally not a dbz fan lol

  • wilson

    SUPER SAYIAN 4 VEGETA!!! Man I can’t wait lol

  • wilson

    It’s going g to be way better then that stupid battle of z

    • Mohammed Rehman

      If DIMPS created battle of z then it will be a great game but some other shit company created the game rubbish so DIMPS is tha best. And there will be another 2D dbz game burst limit 2 after when XENOVERSE has been released.

      • Jasen K

        Wait wait wait! They’ll be a Burst Limit 2?! Please tell me this is an actual fact! I loved that game! The taunts, the transformations, the drama pieces! They should make a Burst Limit 2!

        • Neko Majin

          It’s not a fact, he’s just speculating.

          • Jasen K

            Just speculating? Come on. There really needs to be a Burst Limit 2. It’d be nice to have a second game come out as a surprise the way Super Dragonball Z and Dragonball Z Infinite World did. Both were very fun games, and still are! Oh well, guess we’ll just stick to Xenoverse for now.

          • Neko Majin

            Indeed, but I’d definitely wait for xenoverse to release, and then I’d give it several months before I’d expect them to drop something like that. Throwing around info about a new game, right as you’re about to release a game that changes everything is terrible marketing, which is why you’ll never actual see it, unless a serious leak slips out.

      • Jamin

        Tenkaichi 4 would be both better and more likely. Burst Limit was, imho, a waste of time and money. It felt as much of a step backwards as Super Dragonball Z. The best DBZ games are the Budokai series (though they could’ve dubbed the first one; playing that as a kid, the subtitles got annoying), the Tenkaichi series, the Raging Blast games and now Xenoverse. Ultimate Tenkaichi had its charms, like introducing character customisation, which was implemented better than Xenoverse, and more expansive, but it was overshadowed by the rock paper scissors gameplay which removed skill from the equation. So yeah, the point is, tenkaichi 4 is more likely than burst Limit 2, but neither will happen. My bet is the next game on consoles and pc will be xenoverse 2

  • wilson

    Only down fall about it, is I heard that the destruction don’t say there… Like it resets back to normal during battle… That sucks!!!

  • wilson

    (Stay)

  • Dan

    Just get all forms of baby from gt in there and ill be happy.

  • Xizziano

    When is ps4 getting a demo!?

  • FiachSidhe

    So nothing from arguably the best series in Dragon Ball history, but don’t worry because they are including tons of stuff from the worst. Excellent plan Namco-Bandai.

  • Szűcs Gyufa Gábor

    It is really good game, but still need more upgrade. Grat for this release. I hope next time they making mutch more precise character upgarde. I think 1-1000 attribute points can make mutch more fun, like now is only 1-100.

    EX.: i cant imagine a scale where is so close the sayan god and the original goku…
