We’ve been posting many videos of online gameplay lately from Dragon Ball Xenoverse’s exciting Japanese and English network test, where players can engage in 1-vs-1, 2-vs-2, and 3-vs-3 battles with friends, rivals, and complete strangers. The previous game in the series, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, was either an offline single player campaign or an online multiplayer battle, so many have wondered if Xenoverse is following the same formula. To the delight of fans, the answer is no! There will be offline local 2-player vs matches, where two people in the same physical room can go at it against one another. Take a look at the footage below! The thumbnails might be a little confusing, so we’ve added text above each video to indicate what match-up each contains.
Gohan vs Nappa
Goku vs Goku
Goku vs Yamcha
Piccolo vs Raditz
Vegeta vs Tien
This last video is from the game’s Parallel Quest mode, where you, the player become a time patrol warrior to intervene in the history of Dragon Ball. It features a female Majin character taking part in the Prepare for the Attack of Saiyans quest, fighting against Krillin, Tien, Yamcha, Piccolo, and Goku
