Dragon Ball Xenoverse American Release Delayed

Bandai Namco Games America has announced Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be delayed in North America and South America to February 24, 2015 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. That’s 7 days after the originally announced date of February 17, 2015. The PC Steam release has been pushed back to February 27, 2015.

Earlier today, Bandai Namco Games Europe had announced a 14-day push back to February 27, 2015 for Europe, Middle-East, and Australasia. The Japanese version is still listed for a February 5, 2015 release date as of this writing so if nothing changes on that front in the coming days, our guess is the issue has to do with localization. Of course, that’s just our guess, not the officially announced reason.

It hasn’t been a good day for Western Dragon Ball fans, but we’re sure Bandai Namco and developer Dimps are working very hard for brighter days in the future!
