Some of the most popular anime-related video games come from the Dragon Ball Z franchise, so it should come as no surprise to realize a new game is in development and expected to hit store shelves by October 25, 2016, for Xbox One, and October 28, for Steam.
The game, known as Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2, is said to have better performance when compared to its predecessors, so players should experience things such as smoother online play and a better framerate. We also understand players will be able to change the history of the Dragon Ball series while playing the game.
We’re not quite sure how this will be done, but we expect the developers to share more in this regard before the release date comes around.
Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 has a city that is seven times the size of the previous game. DJ Steve Aoki, a Grammy nominated musician, will have a special collaboration with the developers by remixing some of the most popular Dragon Ball Z tracks for the game. Furthermore, he will also be featured as one of the many non-playable characters located in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2’s hub city.
Players can interact with this character, but it is not yet known at what level and if he’ll be important to the story being told.
“DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 is shaping up to be the biggest and best Dragon Ball videogame experience to date.” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Both the contribution of DJ Steve Aoki’s musical talents and his in-game likeness will add a fun new dimension to the DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 experience that fans will appreciate.”
If you’re not into playing video games based on anime, then how about watching some anime via the official Funimation app for Windows 10. Contents are not free, but they are of the highest quality. Not a fan of Funimation? Then chances are the Crunchyroll UWP app with Cortana support will meet your demands.
