Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, the latest Dragon Ball game made by Dimps made an appearance in this year’s Japan Expo with a playable demo. In this gameplay video, we see the players fighting as Perfect Cell and Goku.
Damn that actually looks sick, this is very promising. I haven't enjoyed a DBZ game since BT2.
Looks rather rough but that's understandable, the game is still in development. Hopefully the lock on system and camera are perfected by then.
Is it just me or does Cell feel a bit... off ? And awkward. But the game already looks many times better than Battle of Z so thats a plus.
Just you? Cell looks like Cell to me, other than the wonky camera angle but that could be who is playing the game as they seem like they aren't that good at it.
Really good, but I'll wait for a proper Dragon Ball PS4/XB1 game, not a cross gen one.
Well the primary development focus is on the current gen versions. The last gen versions will likely then just be downgraded and a bit gimped.
i think the poles and environment in general will be a downside here..i find it blocking the combos, never played DB game hopefully this one will be, dont get me wrong i find this game interesting
Absolute shame they are skipping the Wii U. Their excuse was the Wii U doesn't meet their criteria but their putting it on PS3 and Xbox 360. By criteria, you mean money? Cause there really isn't a reason it shouldn't be on the Wii U also and honestly if they can put it on the Xbox 360 with the same similar architecture as the Wii U, I find it hard to believe they could not easily put it on the Wii U.
This does not look good. Why do some of you have such low standards? Look at games like SF and MK I want a DBZ game of that level of quality. They should go back to 2d fighting grid cuz last 6 games they have this 3d one and games are well awful.
Yea great idea, lets make DBZ just like every other fighting game in existence. Street Fighter sucks now and for me MK lost its luster a long time ago once it went 3D, not that it is bad but it has been the same forever just with better graphics. I probably got so bored of it because there are so many fighting games with the exact same format as MK and SF. It is ridiculous how many fighting games I could name right now that all play like MK or SF. Your idea is awful, that is what we need is more of the same... /s
Maybe u dont understand my point. I said quality wise the game should be like SF4 and MK9 not gameplay wise. You can borrow mechanics that work well in those games. Those games were great. Last 5-6 dbz games have been mediocre. Budokai/Tenkaichi 3 were fun. You are talking out of your ass cuz u clearly have not played SF4 and Injustice and MK9. Games were great. And online was not a joke like that of dbz games. I want them to go back to 2d layout. Graphics of burst limit were amazing I dont understand how they went backwards with the latter games.
Looks good to me. I hope this will have all the characters with all their transformations. Count me in!
I can't wait for this game to release. Looks good for a title hitting in 2015, it'll only get better. I haven't been this excited for a DBZ release since I was a kid!
I want a game like Budokai 3. I dont understand this game; it is and action game with a "fighting camera", they should just put the camera behind the character.
It placed at a dynamic angle so as to allow you to see whether you or your opponent are in your range of striking. They did it through the entire Budokai Tenkaichi series, The Raging Blast Series, Ultimate Tenkaichi and Battle of Z I believe. And it actually works really well for this kind of game.
I prefer it like Budokai (Just Budokai) 3; "2D" perspective. I Also like more Bodokai 3, because the characters were not balanced, so kicking Brolly in the a$$ with Krilin was just plain BADA$$!!
@HeavenlyKing The games have always been pretty balanced, really. The most UNbalanced was arguably "Dragon Ball Z: Sagas" and that game... glitches constantly, would freeze up, it was like it wasn't even finished. I mean Budokai 3 is my favorite too, but this angle works great for this style of gameplay, which also allows the combat to be more like the series itself.
Diggings the speed, I might actually buy this, and I haven't bought a DBZ game since DBZ Tenkaichi 3!
