Dragonball Xenoverse Game's Allies Can Turn Evil
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's eighth issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump will unveil more details on the upcoming Dragon Ball Xenoverse game on Monday. In the game, the new enemy Towa will be able to use magic to turn Goku's friends throughout history evil. The magazine also teases a "mysterious man" (shown in black box insert next to Towa) who is an ally of Towa and is the cause of the transformation.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, players can take on the role of an original character who teams up with Trunks and the Kai of Time to stop the new characters Towa and Mira from changing the course of history in the Dragon Ball story.
The game will ship for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 consoles in Japan on February 5, 2015, and then in the United States on February 24 and in Europe on February 27. It will also debut on PC via Steam on February 27.
The exclusive day one edition in the United States will include exclusive Frieza Soldier battle suits and Super Saiyan IV Vegeta as an exclusive playable character. The first copies in Japan will include a download code for Akira Toriyama's manga hero Jaco the Galactic Patrolman as a playable character. Other early Japanese bonuses include a download code for a Master Roshi set for character customization, a Trunks:Xeno battle card for the Dragon Ball Heroes game, and a serial code to use Trunks:Xeno in the Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle smartphone game.
Bandai Namco Games unveiled the game in Japan in May and announced in June that the game will receive a Western release. In Japan, the game will feature an original video anime (OVA) relating to the events in the game.
