Dragon Ball Xenoverse hit retailers worldwide back in February 2015 and the game received its last update in June of 2015. That was until earlier this month when developer Dimps pushed out update 1.08. The update notes list “Adjusted stamina reduction value of attacks when boost effect wears off during transformation” as the only change. It doesn’t seem like much and fans started speculating what it meant. Could there be bigger updates in store for Dragon Ball Xenoverse, like Dragon Ball Super characters be making their way to the roster? We aren’t sure about that since there is a Dragon Ball game set to be announced later this year.
The immediate reason for the update looks to be the World Tournament! Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the 2nd World Tournament in Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be taking place next month. For those who don’t recall what the world tournament is, take a look at the trailer below. Keep in mind, the trailer was for the first world tournament, which took place September 2015. The dates for the second World Tournament Finals are below. We did not see Bandai Namco announce when the qualifying round for the finals will take place, but we assume it will be next week. If memory serves us correct, the qualifying round for the first World Tournament lasted a few days. In that time, players would build ranking up by winning as many fights as they could with the 4 top players qualifying for the final round.
