In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, players will be able to engage in a world martial arts tournament. This isn’t just any tournament, it’s an online affair known as the Tenkaichi Budokai. Just like the Dragon Ball anime/manga series, Xenoverse will require players to fight in a preliminary round (referred to as pre-match) before engaging in battle on the main stage. The points earned during the preliminaries will determine who fights in the main event. According to Masahiro Kashino, the development producer of Dragon Ball Xenoverse:
So pre-match is basically a bunch of people applying to fight and the winners are decided based on the points that they earn during the battles. The top rankers will be able to go to the main match of the Tenkaichi Budokai tournament and depending on how we set the server we can see who is the number one fighter worldwide, who is the number one fighter in Europe, and we can even see who is the number one Frieza player. Depending on the server setting that we make, we can set up a lot of choices to find out the number one player worldwide.
