Dragon Ball: Xenoverse  
DBXV PS4 Cover

Dragon Ball: Xenoverse (ドラゴンボール ゼノバース, Doragon Bōru Zenobāsu) is a Dragon Ball game developed by Dimps for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows (via Steam). The release date for all consoles was February 5, 2015 in Japan, February 27 in Europe, February 26 in Australia, and February 24th in North America. The Steam release date was February 27, 2015.[1]

The game contains many elements from the 2010 PC game Dragon Ball Online and the 2010 arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes.

Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, shortened as Dragon Ball XV, is the fifteenth Dragon Ball fighting game released on home consoles since Dimps' first Dragon Ball Z: Budokai game, and the first fighting game developed by Dimps to feature full 3D battles similar to the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series. It was originally known as Dragon Ball New Project,[3] until the actual title was revealed on June 10, 2014.[4]


Battles are set in full 3D destructible environments. Fighters can traverse the levels free-roaming in very large spaces and can be fighting on a platform, go in the air, and fight underwater. They run when on the ground, and swim while underwater. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse has dialogue while fights go on, and fighters show facial expressions when they strike an opponent or take damage. In addition to the ever-present ki meter, there is a green stamina meter which can be used up to instantly disappear behind an opponent. This meter can also be used up by certain super attacks like the Kaio-ken.

The players have some freedom to explore the planet Earth as it exists in the Dragon Ball universe along with a handful of other locations, including a mysterious new city which is the point of origin for the game's new character. Like in all the Dragon Ball Z fighting games developed by Dimps, rather than choosing between Goku in his base form and his different Super Saiyan transformations, the character's power and abilities can be gradually increased over the course of each match. However, other multi-form fighters like Frieza and Buu will not be able to transform, as their transformations require many physical modifications to their character models, and as such, all their forms will be separate characters.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Dragon Ball: Xenoverse also include unique gameplay features proper to this generation of consoles.

Split-screen multiplayer is also featured for the game similar to the Budokai Tenkaichi (series).

In a similar fashion to Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, there can be more than 1v1 in battle. There will also be no Quicktime Events in battle and there will be cancels for special attacks.



100% Power Frieza hit by Super Saiyan Goku's Super God Fist

Fights can be up to 3 vs. 3 (During certain parallel quests, in which, up to 5 characters may be on one side).

New world setup - a clock that once had stopped will start to tick again in an enigmatic and futuristic city.

Original battles - take part in epic fights against ferocious enemies such as Vegeta, Frieza, Cell and more.

Character customization - players will have a wide variety of customization options including physical features from the Earthling, Majin, Namekian, Saiyan, and Frieza's races. In an interview with Masayuki Hirano, a Bandai-Namco producer, it was stated that custom characters will be able to level up (level cap is 85), allowing for improvements in skill. Each class will also have unique traits and starting stats as shown in the recent Network test beta, like Namekians having greater healing with items and gaining regeneration when health is low with high health and defense, Saiyans have low health and high attack and grow stronger when they are revived.

Become an apprentice - The Future Warrior will be able to become the apprentice of characters (both heroes and villains) from the Dragon Ball series to gain their special moves. Players can have only one Master at a time, though they can switch to a different Master and resume training with an old one at any time. In order to become a character's student, they first need to be found somewhere in Toki Toki City. Certain characters will not appear until corresponding milestones are reached in the main story. They will then offer to train the Future Warrior, initiating a training qualification test in which the would-be student lower the master's health to a certain level. As friendship with the current Master increases, they will offer training missions which reward new skills upon completion. After becoming an apprentice the Master may occasionally appear to join student in battle as a support character. After completing a Master's training, the apprentice is taught their Master's Ultimate skill and can replay any of their Master's training missions over again and occasionally they will ask to spar triggering a Sparring Mission. Masters also occasionally join in during Parallel Quests to assist their student.[5]

Connecting with a Master through Z-Assist - After completing a Master's Training and learning their Ultimate Skill, custom characters can activate a Z-Assist by using the Master's Ultimate Skill in battle, during which a stylized "Z" flash on screen and the Master's soul goes into them making the attack more powerful. The teacher of the ultimate skill must still be the player's current Master for a Z-Assist to activate.


Towa and Mira have begun interfering with time, and later the Demon God Demigra is released and he begins to also damage history, and so the Time Patrol, created by the Supreme Kai of Time, and led by Future Trunks and the Future Warrior, are sent back in time to stop them. The Future Warrior can travel through different parts of the Dragon Ball timeline using a scroll named the Book of Endings and Beginnings. Every time the Future Warrior fixes the events which were changed by the Time Breakers, history returns to running its original course. The game's Hub World Toki Toki City exists in Age 850.

The Time Breakers destroying history causes many changes to the timeline:

During Goku, Piccolo, and Gohan's battle with Raditz, the Time Breakers interfere and power up Raditz, allowing him to dodge Gohan's attack and escape the Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon, causing only Goku to be hit and then finishes off Piccolo with an Energy Blast. Later on, Vegeta does not kill Nappa, and both he and Vegeta are powered up and transform into Great Apes to battle Goku.

Later on Namek, thanks to the Time Breaker's interference, Ginyu switches bodies with Vegeta and he, Gohan and Krillin are killed by the Ginyu Force. Then they attack Goku, who manages to defend himself , until Ginyu switches bodies with Goku, leaving him in Vegeta's body. Goku tries to fight but fails due to Vegeta's weaker body is overwhelmed by the Ginyu Force and Ginyu throws a Kamehameha at Goku, thus killing him.

Later, due to the Time Breaker's interference, Frieza begins to win the conflict, forcing the Future Warrior to interfere, though Frieza still defeats him, Goku, Gohan, and Piccolo. Frieza is also given a dark power up, but is eventually defeated by Goku and Future Warrior.

Cell is given the dark power up during the Cell Games, and Mr. Satan is also taken control of after Cell tries to kill him. The Cell Jr's are also taken over and kill everyone except for Gohan. Goku is left powerless and unable to move and is presumably beaten by the powered up Hercule. At the climax of the Cell Games, Gohan never brought out his true power (due to Goku not dying in the Cell Games) and when Gohan and Cell are preparing their Kamehameha clash, Cell is powered up by the Time Breakers and joined by 2 Cell Jr's and kill Gohan.

In Future Trunks' timeline in Age 783, the evil Androids 17 and 18 are given dark power by the Time Breakers, making them kill Trunks and Imperfect Cell appears to absorb the androids. Due to the timeline being changed Time Patrol Trunks also vanishes; when the timeline is fixed, it includes Trunks returning to the past only to encounter Cell in his Perfect Form with dark power.

Majin Buu is given the dark power up when he fights Super Saiyan 3 Goku and splits into three Buu's. Later Piccolo is taken control of by Demigra and beats down both Goten and Trunks, but the Future Warrior interferes and corrects the timeline preventing this. Later Super Buu is taken over by Demigra and blows up the Earth during his fight with Gohan. Thanks to the Future Warrior interfering Super Buu instead changes into Kid Buu and engages Gohan and the Future Warrior in a fight, which results in Earth being destroyed, however Goku was able to save Hercule and the Future Warrior from the blast. During the final battle with Kid Buu, Goku is not strong enough alone to push the Super Spirit Bomb into Kid Buu, so the Future Warrior arrives and helps him to use the attack.

When Beerus comes to Earth, Vegeta manages to stop Buu from eating all the pudding, and gives some to Beerus. Beerus is unable to enjoy the dessert, as Goten and Trunks' ball knocks the pudding out of Beerus' hands (although it appeared to be taken control of by Demigra who changed it's course prior). Seeing that Majin Buu has already eaten all the other pudding, Beerus attacks, forcing the Future Warrior to interfere and hold off Beerus with the Z-Fighters. Later Beerus is given the dark power up and prepares an energy sphere, seemingly with the intent to destroy Earth. Just before Beerus tosses the ball of energy, he turns and aims at Démigra. After Démigra barely avoids the attack and the follow up finger laser, Beerus joins the Future Warrior to fight Démigra. The Future Warrior tries to finish off Démigra with a golden ki enhanced punch through his chest, but Démigra's wound merely manifests as dissipated dark energy and he teleports away.

After the defeat of Demigra another history shift takes place and reveals a wormhole is popping up and pulling people out of their time. One occurs during Bardock's final moments before he confronts Frieza. Frieza's men are powered up by Towa as is Frieza and the Future Warrior is forced to intervene to ensure history remains on course. However before Planet Vegeta is destroyed the wormhole swallows Bardock, taking him away. The Future Warrior follows the wormhole and ends up at the start of Videl, Goten and Trunks confronting Broly on Earth. Broly is powered up by Towa and once again the Future Warrior has to intervene to protect them. Before Broly can be beaten, he is pulled into the wormhole. Future Warrior once again follows and ends up in Age 762 with Bardock and Broly meeting face to face on a dying Namek a few miles away from where SSJ Goku and Frieza are fighting, with Towa's intentions of having Broly and Bardock see their arch nemesis' and go into a rage in hopes of Goku or Frieza being killed. Bardock, due to seeing the future, knows this isn't right and after hearing Broly cry out for Goku, Bardock then engages Broly saying that is his son's destiny to confront and beat Frieza and attempts to stall Broly so his son can beat Frieza. The Future Warrior jumps in to help him but before the battle can be concluded they are taken off of Namek thanks to the Dragon Balls and resume the fight on Earth, with Vegeta stumbling across the fight. Bardock recognizing Vegeta requests Vegeta to make a power ball so he can transform into a Great Ape to fight Broly. Vegeta, while confused as to why he looks like Goku, complies and does so and watches the fight from afar. Vegeta eventually jumps in and assist Great Ape Bardock and the Future Warrior in killing the time displaced Broly. After the fight Bardock was heavily injured and transformed back to normal due to injuries and says "serves you right, no one will mess with my son." before appearing to die from his injuries. Vegeta is shocked that they managed to kill Broly but before he can process what happened he is suddenly knocked out. Future Trunks is revealed as the one who knocked him out and tells The Future Warrior to go and he will clean up here. After their plan failed Towa is shown with the remaining cell of Mira and says they have failed but will return.

Once each of these changed times have been righted, and Demigra has been defeated, the Dragon Ball timeline returns to normal.

GT First Half DLC

It is said that the wormhole Demigra created was causing disruptions in history, this time in the GT timeline.

Now during the time period of Dragon Ball GT in Age 789. Tuffle Parasite Infected Trunks (GT) in his Super Saiyan form confronts Pan and later, Golden Great Ape Baby Vegeta confronts the Future Warrior, Pan, and Super Saiyan 4 Goku. But just after being defeated, the unconscious Golden Great Ape Baby Vegeta is sucked into Demigra's wormhole. The Future Warrior begins to depart but Goku stops him and thanks him for protecting Pan.

In Age 790 since Vegeta does not appear in the Super 17 Saga to stop Nappa, the latter leads the newly formed Neo Ginyu Force against the Future Warrior and Super Saiyan Trunks (GT). Even these two great heroes are given serious trouble by the highly improved Nappa, Recoome, and Burter, while Jeice and Guldo were easily killed by Super Saiyan Trunks (GT). However, right after, Trunks (GT) and the Future Warrior defeat the Neo Ginyu Force, Dark Hell Fighter 17 dispatches the worn out Trunks and combats the Future Warrior. The mind-controlled Android then leads the Future Warrior to where Dark Android 17 is. The two Dark Magic infused Android 17s merge to become Dark Super 17; whom faces off against the Future Warrior and later also Goku (GT). With Goku soon ascending into his Super Saiyan 4 form as he helps the Future Warrior defeat Dark Super 17. But before the now normal Super 17 could be dealt the final blow from the Future Warrior, the Ultimate Android is sucked in Demigra's wormhole. As the Future Warrior bids farewell to Goku and flies off to correct another distortion in history but before he can depart Goku stops him and vows to pay him back for all of his help.

GT Second Half DLC

After the battle of Baby and Super 17, the two were sucked in the wormhole. Goku (GT) and Pan were looking for the dragon balls. When they encounter the dragons, Eis and Nuova, they were given dark power.

After the defeat of the Shadow Dragon, Syn Shenron absorb the 6 dragon balls in order to become Omega Shenron. Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta battle him. The two Super Saiyan 4 fuse into the ultimate saiyan: Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta. After the defeat of Omega Shenron, the dragon was sucked into the wormhole.

The Future Warrior and Gogeta were sent to the mountains with Great Ape Baby, Super 17, and Omega Shenron. After the defeat of the GT villains, Trunks appear to say that the timeline is correct. and had a chance to see his father, Vegeta, in Super Saiyan 4. After that, the Future Warrior and Trunks went back to the future. The Supreme Kai of Time of cooks up of celebratory dish for the Future Warrior, who is excited as first, until Trunks informs them that her cooking isn't as divine as she believes. Tokitoki also notices some evil energy that suddenly appeared in the Time Nest.

Once each of these changed times have been righted, the Dragon Ball GT timeline returns to normal.

Parallel Quests

However, new parallel timelines are created from fragments when the timeline is fixed. These events are quite different from anything that happens in the main timeline. Several strange events happen that would have been impossible otherwise, such as a time when the Ginyu Force (backed by Frieza) attack Earth during the lead up to the Cell Games. When the Parallel Quests are completed, these shattered time fragments are fixed.


Universe ModeEdit


Goku vs. Vegeta being observed by the Future Warrior

In this mode, the player creates a Dragon Ball history unknown to all by their own hand.[4] Early promotions for the game draw attention to a mysterious figure watching the first battle between Goku and Vegeta from the shadows, and pose the question of who he is and what this means.[3] With red hair, a scouter, and the Capsule Corporation logo on his sleeve, this character is referred to as Future Warrior, and has come back to intervene in the legendary battles of the series.[4] Bandai Namco does note that it is quite intentional that he seems to have features from many other, established characters in the series.[6] Two new areas are also introduced in the game: the Time Storage Vault which is stated to be almost like the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and a high-tech city with what appears to be a Time Machine landed on it.[3] Standing next to the Time Storage Vault is none other than Future Trunks, the warrior who once came back to the past to save his future, and he is wearing clothes similar to the ones he wears as Time Patrol Trunks in the computer game Dragon Ball Online.[4] Bandai Namco announced that the Time Machine, hourglass, and other features in these futuristic locales all tie together.[6] In an interview from the Japan Expo, it was revealed that story mode will be called “Universe Mode”.[7]

Parallel Quest ModeEdit

Accessible through Toki-Toki City, parallel quests can be completed. Each quest contains a certain timeline, where the Future Warrior (or any other available character) faces a variety of challenges (i:e help Frieza defeat Goku as a Super Saiyan or collecting the Namekian Dragon Balls). As each quest is completed, the player can get rewards such as zeni, skills, items and clothing. Parallel quests also have hidden conditions that are required to get an Ultimate Finish. These conditions can involve beating them mission under a certain time or clearing with a specific ally alive. Once the hidden conditions are met the player are allowed to continue the quest after completing the quest standard condition to finish, and should the fail after this point they will keep any items, skill, and zeni earned. It should be noted that Parallel Quest rewards appear randomly with some dropping when the player defeats a certain characters, rewarded at the end of the quest, and/or received from NPCs encountered during specific quests.

Some skills, clothing, z-souls, and other items may require the player to replay a single quest multiple times to obtain each reward.

Timeline placementEdit

The events taking place in Toki Toki City in Xenoverse take place in Age 850. This is 60 years after the conclusion of Dragon Ball GT (Age 790), 39 years before Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi's Hero Mode and Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission, and 150 years before Dragon Ball Online.

Due to time travel, most of the story happens during the events of Dragon Ball Z, from the arrival of Raditz (Age 761), to Beerus' visit to Earth (Age 778). The first part of the games' Demon God Demigra Saga takes place shortly after Beerus' visit (Age 778) and finishes in Toki Toki City (Age 850).There is also Future Trunks' timeline, in Age 783 and Age 785.

The Legendary Super Saiyan Saga takes place in several eras from the Genocide of the Saiyans (Age 737), Broly's appearance on Earth (Age 774), and even during SSJ Goku's epic battle with Frieza on Dying Planet Namek Age 762, and finally ending on Earth after Porunga transported everyone save for Goku & Frieza.

In the GT DLC, the story covers the end of the Baby Saga (Age 789), the Super 17 Saga (Age 790) and also the Shadow Dragon Saga (Age 790).


Xenoverse is Dimps' first attempt at making a 3D Dragon Ball fighting game.

Xenoverse is the fifteenth Dragon Ball fighting game for home consoles since Dimps' Dragon Ball Z: Budokai. XV, the official abbreviation for Xenoverse, also stands as the Roman numeral for 15. The game was also fittingly released in the year 2015.

The Greek word "Xenoverse" means "uncharted territory".

Xenoverse - Dead Yamcha Super Attack

Yamcha's "Fake Death" Super Skill

During an interview with Masayuki Hirano, he stated that although the game was announced for consoles only, they may have considered releasing it for PC if there was sufficient fan demand. It has since been confirmed to be released on Steam.

Yamcha's pose when he is killed by a Saibaman is referenced in the game as a special attack. The "playing dead" emote animation also uses the pose.

This is the first Dragon Ball fighting game to include both Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan 4 together.

This is also the first fighting game by Dimps to feature all the members of the Ginyu Force as playable characters (adding Burter, Jeice and Guldo).

When fighting Captain Ginyu in the Future Warrior's body, Goku says "Now we can get my body back!" despite the fact that Goku's body has not been swapped yet.

In the cutscene, after Gohan defeats Cell, Yamcha yells out "I did it!" even though he wasn't the one who killed Cell.

Regardless of the player's gender, characters will refer to them with masculine pronouns and terminology, except for "Buu Buu! Majin Buu Cutscene 4" where the Supreme Kai of Time clearly refers to the Future Warrior as "her."[31]

Similar to Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, created characters can use skills of characters who are not playable in the game (such as Nam's Cross Arm Dive, Cooler's Death Chaser and Salza's Sauzer Blade). In Xenoverse, Salza's Salza Blade (which is also one of Jeice's Super Skills in the game) and Master Roshi/Jackie Chun's Lullaby Punch (obtained via a wish to Shenron) both appear as obtainable Super Skills for the Future Warrior.

In this game, Android 17 and Android 18 are capable of using Energy Absorption (via Super Skills Energy Drain, Super Drain, and 'Hyper Drain) despite not being Energy Absorption-model androids like Dr. Gero, Android 19, Cell, and Super 17. Likewise Super Buu can also use Energy Absorption via Hyper Drain.

Additionally despite the Future Warrior's apparent lack of Android enhancements, they are capable of using Energy Absorption (via the skills Energy Drain, Super Drain, Hyper Drain, and Super 17's Drain Field).

The Parallel Quest "Super Saiyan Legend" is based off of the final battle from the Super Famicon RPG Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu, complete with the same secret: If the player lets Frieza kill Krillin (causing Goku's first Super Saiyan transformation) and then defeats Frieza while Vegeta is still alive, it triggers a special battle where Vegeta goes Super Saiyan and attacks the heroes.

In the cutscene after Demigra's defeated, with everyone laughing, as well as while Super Saiyan God Goku fires his Super Spirit Bomb in Battle Mode, there is a glitch where Goku's Japanese voice is heard, even when the English Dub voices are selected.
