Bandai Namco Games America Inc. Launches the Biggest Dragon Ball Game Ever with Dragon Ball Xenoverse
SAN JOSE, Calif., (February 24, 2014) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today launched Dragon Ball XENOVERSE for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The STEAM® for PC version of the game will be available on February 27th. Lastly, the physical versions of the game will be available in Mexico on February 27th.
Dragon Ball XENOVERSE was developed by famed Japanese videogame developer Dimps, and turns the adrenaline filled Dragon Ball universe on its head as time-traveling villains, Towa and Mira, create temporal distortions in the past as part of an evil plot to spread chaos and alter the course of Dragon Ball history as we know it. With the help of Trunks, players must travel through this altered history with their own custom-created character, and intervene in crucial events of the past to restore Dragon Ball history. Players will be deeply immersed into the most famous and epic battles and come face to face with the most powerful Saiyan warriors and fearsome enemies, such as Vegeta, Frieza and Cell, as the future hangs in a balance.
Fast-paced and powerful battles wait to be discovered with improved gameplay, strong immersion into the famous universe created by Akira Toriyama and new characters—such as a deity called the Supreme Kai of Time and a bird with powerful energy called Tokitoki who can produce time. Breaking previous Dragon Ball game conventions, Dragon Ball XENOVERSE will feature a new world set up featuring the mysterious and futuristic Tokitoki City that will be the central hub for players from around the world to fight, quest and have fun together.
“Dragon Ball is one of the most beloved anime franchises in the world, and the overwhelming fan support and devotion has driven us to constantly evolve and improve Dragon Ball video game content as technology advances.” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “The Dimps team has truly delivered a new perspective in storytelling and Dragon Ball gameplay and we are extremely pleased that the fans can experience their favorite manga on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and STEAM for the first time ever.”
Dragon Ball XENOVERSE is rated “T” for “Teen” by the ESRB and is available in the Americas (USA, Canada, Brazil, and rest of Latin America) for the PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One at a MSRP of $59.99 and the PlayStation®3 system and Xbox 360 at a MSRP of $49.99. The limited “Day 1” Edition includes an exclusive playable character in the form of Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta and two special Frieza Soldier's Battle Suits, offering players the chance to equip both Gold and Crystal outfits.
