Bandai Namco has confirmed that the much anticipated sequel to the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse is now confirmed to be getting a western release on October 25. While a Japanese release was confirmed for Winter 2016, we did not know if it would be getting a western version the same year.
Developed by Dimps, Xenoverse 2 builds upon the success of it’s prequel and deals with a very similar premise of time travel, with the help of various major events from the Dragon Ball storyline. The game will take place 2 years after the events of the original game and will feature a brand new protagonist as well as a hub city that is seven times larger than its predecessor. You can check out the Anime Expo trailer for the game below.
The publisher has also announced that the game will feature Steve Aoki, Grammy-nominated DJ and long time fan of the series, who will work on the game as a music contributor as well as appearing in the game as a non-playable character.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is set to release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC and is reported to run at a frame rate of 60 frames per second on all three platforms. The game, unlike it’s prequel, will not be coming out on last-gen consoles.
