Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (DBXV2) is the newest Dragon Ball game. The game is a sequel to the original Xenoverse which came out in 2015.

It came out on:

25th October ( US PS4, XB1)

28th October (PC, EU PS4 and XB1)

Fall 2017 (Switch)

 

 

You can choose your CaC race from these:

  • Majin (Male and Female)
  • Sayian (Male and Female)
  • Human/Earthling (Male and Female)
  • Namekian
  • Frieza's Race

Each Race has pros and cons:

  • Sayians have low health but high attack. Attack increases when HP is low and all stats increase when revived.
  • Namekians have high health and quick stamina recovery but low attack. Items have bigger effects on them and they regenerate HP when it's low.
  • Earthlings have balanced attack and defense. They charge Ki automatically and their attack increases when Ki is maxed
  • Majins have high defense but stamina refill is slow. When stamina is maxed defense increases.
  • Frieza's race has low health, but fast movement speed. They recover stamina when they use melee attacks and become faster when health is lowered.

The game's hub is Conton City, where you can buy clothes and moves, train with your masters, complete Parallel Quests and do the main story. There are also portals to important places in Dragon Ball.

Conton City also provides a mini story about you having to deafeat the Nutz Gang.

Main Gameplay:

Melee Attacks are done by using the Triange and Square/ X and Y buttons. You can combo them in different ways.

If you charge the Triangle/ Y button you will break the enemy's stamina if they are blocking.

Super Attacks require Ki to use. ( 1 or 2 bars). Each character can have up to 4 super attacks. To use a Super Attack you need to press Triangle or Square or X or Circle / X or Y or A or B while holding RT.

Ultimate Attacks also require Ki and are stronger than Super Attacks. (3,4,5) You can have up to 2 Ultimate Attacks. To use an Ultimate you need to press Triangle or Square/ X or Y while holding LT and RT.

Supers and Ultimates can be Ki based, Strike based or Others.

Awoken Skills are used by pressing Circle / B while holdong LT and RT. (I wrote more about them below)

Evasive Skills require 3 bars of Stamina. These don't deliver mich damage as their main use is to block attacks. To use an Evasive you need to press X / A while holding LT and RT.

Ki Blasts ard used by rapidly pressing the Circle/ B button. These can be charged. There are 5 types of Charged Ki Blasts, which can be changed by the Super Soul:

Rush Ki blasts will fire tons of small Ki Blasts.

Power Ki Blast will launch one huge Ki Blast.

Homing Ki Blast will slowly go towards your opponent.

Bomb Ki Blast can be blown up when pressing the Circle / B button again.

Paralyise Ki Blast will paralyise your opponent for ~2 seconds. 

Stamina Breaks are the most important attacks and are required to win online. To use a Stamina Break you need to press one of the Melee buttons while pushing the control stick towards the enemy. Be careful, as they can be blocked.

You can guard by holding the LB button. Guarding requires stamina. If you block at the moment the attack hits, you will get a Perfect Block/ Just Guard. This will block all the damage, give a Ki bar and lower enemy Stamina by 1 bar.

You can knock back your opponent by pressing Triangle and Circle / Y and B at the same time.

Burst Dashes are used to get to you opponent in case they try to run away. They cost 1 stamina bar and are used by pressing X and Square/ X and A at the same time.

 

Attribute Points are given every time you level up. You can use them to increase:

Health

Ki

Stamina

Basic/Melee

Strike

Ki Attacks

The max you can put on one of these is 100 before talking to Guru and becomes 125 after that.

 

Parallel Quests are missions which will get you moves, clothes and Super Souls. There are 100 PQ in the main game. These are ranked by start, ranging from 1 to 7 stars.

Time Patrollers can be found in some PQ. You can fight them to win rewards. If you defeat one TP you get 2 rewards and if someone else beats one you only get 1 reward. The rewards can be Dragon Balls, Vegeta's Shirt and Mixing Devices.

Super Souls are special effects which range from greatly boosting Normal Attack to Regenerating Health. You can only equip one Super Soul.

 

Expert Missions are 6v1 missions where you need to defeat a very powerfull enemy. There are 16 of these. These can be done either online or offline. While most of them are really easy offline, Extreme Malice is a really hard one in which most of us had to try a lot of times to beat it.

Each Expert Mission can drop a Super or Ultimate Attack:

  • Mission 1: Murder Grenade(Super)
  • Mission 2: Super Destructo Disc (Super)
  • Mission 3: Death Wave (Super)
  • Mission 4: Supernova (Ultimate)

  • Mission 15: Spirit Sword (Ultimate)
  • DLC Mission 16: Focus Flash (Super)
  • DLC Mission 17: Tail Slicer (Super)

All I can say right now is that I really hope Bandai listened to all the complaints the first game received.

Hopefully Zarbon and Dodoria should be a sign that Bandai is bringing back all the important missing Z characters from XV1 and that should definitely be their main priority before adding new characters from DB, Movies, GT and Super regarding the roster.

All they need now are:

Dr. Gero

Android 19

Android 16

Cell (Imperfect and Semi Perfect)

Frieza ( 2nd and 3rd forms)

Chaiotzu

King Cold

Mecha Frieza

Super Buu ( Gohan and Gotenks)

Majin Vegeta

Dabura

and if maaaaybe possible....

Master Roshi and Yajirobe.

After them, they can go nuts.

In terms of the story, I kinda have a bad feeling they're gonna reuse the same story from XV1 with added characters and Sagas but let's hope they're just there as archives which are minor history distortions and they primarily focus on the NEW story.

Messin with the main timeline in DBZ is kind of the point but I see potienial in other story ideas.

It is strange how in the games, a non canon anime only series gets more attention than the original manga series that started it all.

I think it's mainly because despite having a negative reception and being anime only, GT has more popular characters such as the SSJ4 characters, Baby and Omega Shenron while Dragon Ball has less popular characters to use aside from main fighters such as Kid Goku, Demon King Piccolo etc, I think it's also because most DB characters lack the ability to fly.

Everyone sure has been quiet since Xenoverse 2 was announced but due to the lack of more info, I can understand.

I can't believe I forgot to mention Beam Struggles! I don't know why they took those out, and for the custom characters, can we please make actual child and teen characters this time intead of small adults with high voices?

Is it too much to ask for at least one more VA from Abridged apart from Nappa's one for character creation? 

If you can change events, we should have an entire storyline which is just the Abridged version, but it's narrated by Abridged Nappa.

No, actually fuck that.

Let's have every single character in the game voiced by Abridged Nappa.
