From the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, CA (USA) is new information on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2! In a live streamed interview with GameSpot, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 producer Masayuki Hirano revealed a few new tidbits on the game.
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1, players did not have the ability to fly in the hub city of Toki Toki City. In Xenoverse 2’s new hub, Conton City, players will start off unable to fly, but as they progress in the game, they will gain that ability. The reason players are unable to start off with flying in Conton City is because the developers want players to search the city in a specific order. Once they’ve gone through that order and attained a certain progress level, they will unlock the ability to fly so they can get to new places that would otherwise be unreachable. It should be worth noting, the ability to fly in Conton City is different than battle. We at Saiyan Island assume players will always be able to fly in battle, as expected.
- It’s rumored there will be hoverboards, vehicles, and Nimbus Clouds for players to fly on. Hirano-san mentioned he is unable to address if this is true or not at this time.
- Fans asked for a training mode in Xenoverse 1. Developer Dimps will deliver as there will be a training mode called “Training School” in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 started development before Dragon Ball Super began to air in July 2015 so it’s unclear how much of the game will cover content from the series.
- It’s rumored there will be more transformations in Xenoverse 2. Hirano-san mentioned he can’t comment on this at this time and for fans to please wait for more details on what and how many transformations there will be in the game.
- There will be new online gameplay features. It was not elaborated what new features will be in the game, however. Bandai Namco has revealed online multiplayer will be for between 2 to 6 players.
- Local multiplayer will not have split screen. The camera will be similar to Xenoverse 1. There will be many more stages in local multiplayer with the camera adjusted to fit all action on a single screen. The specific amount of stages can’t be revealed at this time, but Hirano-san mentions fans will be satisfied with the number.
