PS3 news Xenoverse 1st fighting game to have Female Super Sayians + black people

#1xenosaga123Posted 8/19/2014 1:30:11 PM
PS3 fans are getting the ultimate Dragon Ball fighting game EVER!!!!

and if the hints of the online features are any indication, this might be the Phantasy Star Online equivalent to fighting games, with its 3D HUB city connecting everything and the community, while still having offline and local options. It might even have 3 players co-op since it seems to support 3 vs 3.

Though the total character roster count is not confirmed, though Xenoverse's character creation makes things entirely better.

More of the character creation is revealed. If Skyrim had a fighting game, it would probably have this kinda structure (plus it's said Xenoverse is getting more than 3 races.

Sure, The Elder Scrolls has 10 races, but the Xenoverse customization is entirely blowing away UT and could rival DBO's. This is the most innovative character customization in the whole fighting series.

Recent updates:

For now they show a little of the Human/Sayian character creation,
and the Namek and Majin races details are soon to come:

The story is based on DBO's lore (created by Akira Toriyama and Bird Studio during the 5+ years they worked on the project alongside NTL.) DBO doesn't have servers now due to the
F2P model not funding things like P2P subs can, and the lack of localization in the west (was only available in Republic of Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong), but Xenoverse can carry its amazing legacy that is filled with massive creativity and infinite potential. Plus with Dimps deep fighting system and Tenkaichi inspired free flying 3D combat, this will be the most authentic and forward thinking Dragon Ball ever that steps into a BRAND NEW SAGA!!!! :) I could drool to thought of a Xenoverse series that introduces new sagas and expansions to the content.

DBO Opening 1

DBO Opening 2

Xenoverse could involve multiple universes too, and can bring forth
a new saga of events and antagonist(s). A Xenoverse series has even greater potential than Dragon Ball Heroes!! And with this deep character customization, the roster has gone up over 9000!!!! Good thing this console isn't missing out!! :) (come to think of it, do PS3 gamers think PS4 is a better deal or PS3 is still the best? Well they are both great, though think PS4 has some refining to do, but some say it's stable.)

Ah yes so in my opinion this is shaping up to be one of PS3's greatest games of all time!!
People ranting that DBZ just recycles the same sagas, well this story is exploring familiar AND uncharted territory. :) Plus in this story, YOU are the main character and can be whatever you want (based on the races available.

This seems to have experience levels and loot too

so people will be able to carve their own identity and experiences in immersive Dragon Ball epicness. Plus if this has solid PVE content besides PVP, it can really elevate the community to more cooperative qualities just like what Borderlands has done for shooters and PSO did for rpgs.

Of course don't expect a mmo dungeon hack. It could be story, co-op and versus battles connected to a HUB, but that's okay since this is a Dragon Ball fighting game with gameplay that is about the fighting. but still the open MC creation and community HUB does present
a more immersive and more community enviornment than previous games.

Some of the DBO lore that could carry over to Xenoverse

(don't read too deep into the Classes side of the lore. Xenoverse probably won't have "classes" since that was more designed to explain the DBO style of gameplay system, being an mmorpg and all.
Plus the races are cooler without relying on weapons like fans and drums to optimize their fighting performance. though the Class category themes might carry over.)

The Human Race
and Classes

Of the three races, the humans have the longest established culture on Earth, and they're also the most prolific, having spread to all corners of the world, including the Wastelands. As of Age 1000, the human race has become cross-bred with the Saiyan race, and as such, many believe that the race holds a powerful, hidden potential. In Age 820, the remnants of the Frieza Army invaded Earth; the war and environmental destruction has given the human race an intense drive to protect the planet.

You may have also noticed that humans in the Age 1000 are well aware of advanced fighting techniques. This is all thanks to Son Gohan, who published the book "Groundbreaking Science" around Age 800, presumably introducing concepts such as ki control to the general public and ushering in a worldwide revolution in martial arts (details on this aren't completely clear).

Introducing the New Hermits

After Gohan wrote "Groundbreaking Science", which advocated martial arts and increased expectations to use them, many began to call for a revival of the Turtle and Crane Schools. However, the Turtle and Crane Hermits had retired due to old age, and the task of revival was passed on to Kuririn and Tienshinhan.

Krillin founded the New Turtle School. Having fought many battles alongside Saiyans and Namekians, he understood that humans simply couldn't compare to aliens and developed techniques that revolved around working together. Even if they're unable to deal a killing blow to kill their opponent, they can still weaken them, and by combining their efforts with others, would be able to contend with far stronger enemies.

Tienshinhan, on the other hand, came to a different conclusion, believing that it was more important to develop aggressive attacks by controlling ki than it was to provide support. Having witnessed the Genki Dama that Son Goku used to defeat Majin Boo, he realized that it was possible for an individual to defeat even the strongest opponent by raising their power to the limits and gathering tremendous amounts of ki. As such, he developed techniques that revolved around strategically collecting ki and unleashing bursts of intense energy with precise timing.

Founding of the groundbreaking Kikoukenjutsu Sword School

In Gohan's "Groundbreaking Science", he wrote that the Katchin metal (that was used to test the Z-Sword) could, in fact, be cut, which caused many to become interested in learning swordplay. When Trunks and Goten learned about this, they got all fired up and decided that they'd start an awesome sword school of their own. This lead to the founding of the groundbreaking Kikoukenjutsu Sword School. Kikoukenjutsu, or "Spiritual Swordsmanship", revolves around elegant swordplay and infusing blades with ki to overpower opponents.

The Namekian Race and Classes

After the namekian's homeworld, Planet Namek, was destroyed, they migrated to New Namek. However, that was attacked by Miira in Age 853, forcing them to move yet again. They settled on Earth, primarily around "Porunga Rocks", a region that was terraformed to resemble Namek. They now work on behalf of Kami-sama Dende to prevent Miira from causing global destruction.
Unlike other races, namekians are genderless and reproduce asexually.

The Namekian Warriors are warrior-type namekians that follow the teachings of the legendary namekian warrior, Piccolo, and they fall into two categories Makai Warriors and Madou Warriors. Makai Warriors follow Piccolo's teachings, while the Madou Warriors are those who have reinterpreted Piccolo's teachings to develop a new style.

Namekian Dragon Clansmen are the rare namekians born into the Dragon Clan, who have the ability heal others and to create and control shenlongs. The Dende Priests follow the teachings of Kami-sama Dende, who is regarded as the greatest spirtual teacher in Namekian history, and emphasize healing and strengthening their allies. Poko Priests, on the other hand, vomit eggs that hatch into demon shenlongs called Pokopen, which they can control, similar to Piccolo Daimao; these Pokopen include Bongo and Gamelan.

The Majin Race
and Classes

After Goku left to train Uub, Mr. Buu and Mr. Satan won the 28th Tenkaichi Budokai by cheating, and remained undefeated through the 29th and 30th. However, after a while, Mr. Buu became envious of the humans and the close relationships they had with their sweethearts. In Age 790, Buu accidentally found and read Mr. Satan's copy of "Bob and Margaret", a controversial adult book, in his library. He began to study it in order to create a "Female Buu" that would be just his type. With the name Buuby in mind, he removed part of his body and molded it into a wife for himself, then finished by hitting her with a Love Beam, causing her to give birth to a "Baby Buu". From then on the population grew quickly, and, in time, the descendants of Buu were recognized worldwide as the Majin race. They're an optimistic and joyful people who dedicate themselves to making "fun days" for otherse, though they can become dangerous when they're angry or confused. They stand against Miira in order to create a more pleasant Earth.

The majin fall into two basic categories: Daimajin (Large Majin) and Imajin (Strange Majin). The Daimajin are happy and have a natural gift for uplifting the spirits of those around them and are also able to reduce the impact of enemy attacks with their soft bodies. They can become Ultima, musicians who enjoy fighting and rally their friends with songs, or Granma, chefs who torment their enemies with a mischievous and fattening fighting style and use maces that resemble foods.

The Imajin, on the other hand, are majin that at some point experienced the corrupting influence of sin. They're aggressive, and develop fighting techniques capable of really hurting their enemies. They can become Plasmas, who become too fixated on enjoying themselves and taking pleasure in nature; like monks, Plasmas use their drums to draw on the power of nature (like lightning), but can also use the drums to fill their friends with rhythm. The Karmas are majin who have developed a dark side due to past experience with sin, and they dance and wear masks to frighten or entrance their enemies

Despite being a hardcore DBZ fan starting in 1996, I couldn't care less about any game released until they go back to the Budokai style and actually try to make it a good fighting game.
Behold and gaze upon the magnificent monstrosity what stands before thee; the beast of possibility.

This. I love DBZ, but they need to go back to the classic 2D fighting that made Budokai great.
My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

Exactly. the newer games all focus on giving as much fan service as possible, but honestly, that shtick got old shortly after Tenkaichi 3. It's time the games stood on their own through good gameplay rather than boasting "Hey look, here's some side characters you haven't punched yet." (which is pretty close to Tenkaichi 3's actual tag line of "Introducing some characters you haven't punched in the face yet.")

here are theories of the general customization options this could have

1. Race (three confirmed, with hints of more races being added)
2. Gender
3. Face
4. Hairstyle (and for super sayians, this amount could double for each hairstyle)
5. Haircolor
6. Skin Tone (well DBO had it)
7. Costume
8. Costume color (each costume might have alternate color versions or tweakable colors.)
9. Back Accessory (if capes are not attached to a costume set, it could be its own piece. this slot could also add things like Sayian Tail.)
10. Head Accessory (Scouter, sunglasses, etc.)
11. Equip Moves/Signature moves (at least special attacks could probably be customized in the sense of choosing preferred signature moves you learn/unlock. and perhaps some movesets/combo sets to choose from to customize fighting style. the default moveset could be based on race. )
12. equip items/skills (this might buff stats or add other abilities.)

they have yet to confirm aura/ki color edit, though it could be included.
