Dragon Ball Fans: Time to Get Hyped (E3 2014 Preview)
Dragon Ball fans get ready, because we got to see some exclusive gameplay footage of the newest fighter at this year's E3. Developed by the same team who worked on the Budokai trilogy (Dimps): Dragon Ball Xenoverse was announced just a day before our viewing. Though the game is still shrouded in a dense layer of mystery, there was enough shown to gleam some exciting news from.
First off, the graphics in Xenoverse are a huge improvement from the past. The game is looking stunning in current-gen consoles. Expressions can now be seen on the characters as they duke it out across beautiful scenery. Of course, the devs know what Dragon Ball is all about: quick, powerful, and epic fights, and Xenoverse looked like it was replicating and amplifying those fights amazingly.
Goku and the others will fly through the area, floating in the air, speeding at one another with fists of fury. The environment will also react to your fighting - whether it be stones breaking, or the ground cracking. You also have the ability to shoot down into water and battle under the surface. I can't even express in words how beautiful this game was looking, from the fluid animation, to the insane-looking particle effects. Better yet, in-battle transformations are possible (I saw Goku transform into Super Saiyan before my eyes).
There is a ton to be excited about here, and I wish they only had told us more at E3. The story for Dragon Ball Xenoverse right now is unknown, along with the release date. However, there is one other thing to keep you excited until more details come out: a new character has been announced! While we were told about his existence, his appearance and background are, you guessed it, still unknown. Multiplayer and single-player modes have been announced, along with the promise of a huge slew of characters to choose from.
So Dragon Ball Budokai fans, you have something huge to look forward to. Hopefully we will get some more news soon!
Three things describe Rando: Good beer, good food, and video games. On occasion, Rando flies a zeppelin through time seeking power crystals.
