Last year, Bandai Namco Entertainment America released Dragonball Xenoverse, and it was a very welcome change compared to previous Dragonball Z titles, which were the story of the Dragonball Z series replayed over and over again. This year Dimps and Bandai Namco want to take it a step further with Dragonball Xenoverse 2 when it releases later this year.

Dragonball Xenoverse 2’s announcement trailer highlights a few key moments of the Dragonball anime series. These include Frieza destroying Planet Vegeta with Bardock, and a young Future Trunk finding Future Gohan dead after being defeated by Android 17 and 18, teasing that it may be possible to alter the outcome of certain moments in the series.

It’s yet to be known if Akira Toriyama will also be working on the script for this game.

“The Dragon Ball franchise is a crown jewel and a perennial fan-favorite of Bandai Namco Entertainment’s robust anime video game portfolio and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will build upon that illustrious legacy.” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “With Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, we’re working diligently with the Dimps team to pull out all the stops and push the Dragon Ball video game experience to new heights.”

The trailer also showcases a new hub city and a few new character customization options. It will be interesting to see if Bandai Namco plans on carrying over any data from the first Xenoverse game, which could be hinted in the first few moments which showcases the created hero from the first Dragonball Xenoverse trailer.

Dragonball Xenoverse is being developed for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Bandai Namco will also be revealing more about the game during E3.
