According to Hanmoto and Amazon Japan, Dragon Ball: Xenoverse will have 47 playable characters, 12 Master Quests, 50 Parallel Quests, 200 different skills and around 400 different equipment to choose from.
Hmmmm...I hope they don't go the Goku, Super Saiyen Goku, Super Saiyen 2 Goku route... I wasn't interested in this game at first because, seriously, how many times can you battle through the Freiza saga...but seeing some of the new characters and stories peaked my interest.
There's already a Season Pass announced, which means they'll be DLC milking anyway. I believe they even kept out Vegeta to sell him to us later as DLC.
Well there goes my interest in the game. If they seriously kept out Vageta, then that is the biggest scumbag move in the history of DLC. I also just read that Android 16, 17 and 18 are not playable characters! Yea, I'm officially out for this game. Edit: @Snookies Really, reading the comments on that site I keep reading that the Androids are not playable characters. Hey, I hope I'm wrong and I hope Vegeta is a playable character also.
@gangsta_red - What? I've seen a video of Android 18 being used.
No they didn't. They kept out Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta, but you can get him through the Pre-Order. The normal versions of Vegeta are in the game. I believe its Vegeta (Scouter), Vegeta, Majin Vegeta, Super Saiyan Vegeta, Super Vegeta, and Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta. Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta is the only one not included, but again, you can get him with a pre-order. Could you imagine the fallout if they released a game without one of the top 3 fan favorite characters being playable? Don't be crazy.
Redit has a page of confirmed characters. Androids and Vegeta are already included.
They've separated characters like Cell and Frieza into their other forms for use in battle, but as for Goku, He'll be base, and a separate character for SS4 and Super Saiyan God. Basically the only characters that can transform during a fight are Saiyans, up to SS2 for custom characters and SS3 for Goku.
Well that sucks, many people on youtube and other sites were saying theres was going to be over 100 characters
Pretty sure that game guide doesn't factor in separate character forms like Frieza or Cell.
most likely transformations are not included in count so 47 unique characters, not bad at all.
47 is fantastic. That's almost as much as ssb4!
Budokai Tenkaichi 3 had 150 playable characters.
This is the first in the series so it can be expected that it won't have over a 100 characters at launch but dlc is good as long as it is not overprice.
47 is fine, what is NOT fine is excluding characters that have been/should be in every Dragon Ball Z fighting game, and instead including characters like freaking Larsberri and Appule. Android 16, 19, Dr. Gero, Zarbon, Dodoria, Dabura and possibly Cooler are CONFIRMED TO NOT BE IN THIS GAME! This marks the first time Android 16 has not been playable in a home console game since the PSX!
