Plus, influence history through choice-based dialogue.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse

The ‘Future Warrior’ previously teased for Dragon Ball Xenoverse can become a Super Saiyan, Bandai Namco revealed.

The character, who comes to Xenoverse from years in the future, is said to have a “strong link” with the Dragon Ball world as we know it, and seems to know Yamcha, Trunks, and “many other characters.”

Bandai Namco teases his identity “might be uncovered” in the game’s next update.

View screenshots of the Future Warrior going Super Saiyan at the gallery. Additionally, you’ll see choice-based character dialogue with Yamcha on the streets. According to this month’s V-Jump, these choices will influence history.

    Super Saiyan God Gohan reverts to Super Saiyan. What is this.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Like the psychics in Frieza planet 419 would say “GOHAN IS THE STRONGEST IN THE UNIVERSE, BUT DOESN’t DO CRAAAP!”. DBZ Abridged is awesome!

      • Budgiecat

        oh the debates people used to have on Ultimate Gohan…..saying he could beat SSJ3 Goku, Vegitto, Gogeta, SSJ4 Goku & Vegeta, SSJ4 Gogeta…

        Basically on the premise of Kai ‘unlocking Gohan’s potential’, accompanied by a phrase Goku said of Gohan having ‘unlimited potential’ far surpassing him or any of the other Saiyans….

        and yet, he’s so lame lol

        • Elvick

          Gohan should’ve just taken over after one of Goku’s many deaths. Let a man die in peace already, sheesh.

          Then he could’ve been as cool as he should’ve been.

          • Budgiecat

            Chi Chi would not stand for it. Gohan do your studies!!

            • Elvick

              Snap her neck.

              • Budgiecat

                but she would just be revived by da dragon balls..

  • shafiq95

    It’s a created character…

  • shogunknight

    its gohan. Im pretty sure of it

  • TheBlackRabbit

    what a mashed up character…but i will give this game a chance….

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    can go super saiyan…. just like everyone else

  • Quiet Gear Soild

    Gohan’s doppelganger.

  • Samsara09

    Even a dog in DBZ can go super saiyan.This is nothing.I do wonder,though.Toriyama created the concept of super saiyan,but hell,not only are there levels,but almost anyone with saiyan blood can reach it.Not quite so legendary.

    • Invisbin

      People misunderstand. Goku was a super saiyan…not the Legendary Super Saiyan. That’s Broly. Broly can go Super Saiyan and then Legenedary Super Saiyan .

      • OverlordZetta

        Not quite right either. Broly’s something else entirely.

        The form itself is legendary because there were literally legends told about it. That’s it.

        There are legends about all kind of things that we can explain now – the explanation for this is that most Saiyans weren’t strong enough and just didn’t meet the requisites for it.

        You could argue this applies to the half-Saiyan kids too, but their being half is likely a factor, not to mention the regular exposure to the form probably has something to do with it.

      • SageShinigami

        AFAIK, the only thing Broly is is movie filler. Goku’s pretty much the closest thing to any kind of legend since his power seemingly has no limits in that universe.

        • OverlordZetta

          Broly is, like many other movies, something Toriyama had a hand in.

          Though ironically, the actual and original legendary Super Saiyan that started the legend was Bardock, believe it or not, at least now with recent material.

          • Budgiecat

            Toriyama didn’t even know who Broly was when interviewed once lol

            • Samsara09

              What the fuck did those money-suckers do to DBZ,lol?

          • British_Otaku

            Thanks for reminding me about that.
            If you go and look into the details, Naho Ooishi was the writer of that Super Saiyan Bardock manga which became an anime (not Akira Toriyama) AND that manga was based on a scenario in Dragon Ball Heroes (a CardAss game) which is also responsible for Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta and Broly who appeared in Raging Blast.

            There are three things wrong here:

            1) Toriyama didn’t pen the tale.
            2) It is a promotion for a game at worst and at best a derivative work.
            3) I don’t trust anyone even Toriyama to continue the story now when it wasn’t consistently well done before.

            • Anime10121

              Hmm, I didnt know someone else wrote that Bardock story, I thought it was Toriyama too. But looks like I’m back to my original statement that Goku was the Legendary Super Saiyan, and all others were non canon, at least until after Goku where they started passing them (super saiyan transformations) out like candy :P

            • Samsara09

              dragon ball Z should have ended either on the Frieza Saga or on the Cell one.DBZ really did turn out to be a money cow.

              • British_Otaku

                Yeah, I really think that either the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai or the Frieza Saga would have ended the tale quite well though I’ll admit I appreciate the fun characters and occasions from the generally bad later arcs and movies.

                It would have been nice if the story could have ended with more consistency till the last chapter and more grace following the end.

          • Anime10121

            That OVA was SO MUCH FAIL :/

            Time Travel, Frieza’s “canonized” “distant-couzin”, Bardock going Super Saiyan to save that race of I forgot their names when he could to save his planet, wife, son and race… SO MUCH FAIL :|

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        he’s not a canon character anyway

      • Samsara09

        Oh,sorry for being so late.Yes,I know.What the legend of the super saiyan referred to is probably someone on Broly’s power level,and considering the bastard’s power,the guy who earned the reputation must have been a beast.

  • gulabjamal

    It’s alternate Universe Gohan duh

    • Budgiecat

      We already had an alternate Universe Gohan

      • MasterSensei

        Who says that there is only one alternate universe is Dragon Ball Z?

        • Budgiecat

          I’m sure someone says

  • Tetsu

    Future Goten
    Except the whole red-hair thing and it’s not Goku-shaped anymore lol.

  • Comandante Bushido

    Needs moar A18 bewbs

  • Guardian Byakko

    Lookin safer to say 2 vs 2 battles, but not confirmed yet. I really hope it isn’t an alternate gohan, but even if it is, altering the events that transpire sounds excellent. The choice system is getting me to wonder the possibility of a created character, and multiple endings.

  • SageShinigami

    > Goes Super Saiyan
    >> Wears a scouter

    What, why?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Swag?

  • Willgaea

    What about pan? I always wanted to see a female super saiyan.

    • OverlordZetta

      There are three that go up to Super Saiyan 3 if the DBH avatars count.

      • Willgaea

        I think I’m looking for something more canon.

    • MasterSensei

      If Bardock can become a super saiyan then why not Fasha?

  • tokyobassist

    Still banking on it being a created character. If it is a canon character then I gotta interject and say that the design is butt ugly. I’m not much into fashion but that just looks like some nonsense I would’ve wore as a kid.

    I’m digging the concept of changing parts of the DBZ story a lot. I hope the gameplay is up to par because if they can make a DBZ game remotely as good as Tenkaichi 3, I’m down. I’m open to changes but I just needs to be good.

    • Budgiecat

      I liked Super DBZ and Dragonball Kai Ultimate Butouden

      • tokyobassist

        Yeah Super DBZ was by far one of the most underrated DBZ fighting games. The reason I put Tenkaichi 3 so high up isn’t the character roster, it’s the overall feel of the game. It feels like a DBZ game and not so much a by the number fighting game if that makes any sense.

  • Willgaea

    hmm.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Ghost uses it too and he’s been having issues with Pomf.se. Could be a problem with the program itself rather than Disqus.

      • Willgaea

        It seems to be running fine now. @zerorpg:disqus. I think I got it handled now.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Of course he can. Everyone and their mom can turn Super Saiyan these days, unfortunately :/

    • MrFinalgamer

      *Father. Women apparently just can’t become Super Saiyans (or at least, none have yet…)

      • Willgaea

        Toriyama doesn’t know how to draw a female super saiyan. That’s pretty much what he said. It’s not that they can’t. Toriyama just lacks the skill.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        I wasn’t being literal. It was just an expression. Basically, it’s just silly because Super Saiyans used to be this legendary thing, but now everyone under the sun is one, so it’s kind of “meh” when they announce another one.

        • MrFinalgamer

          I know, I just wanted to make fun of the fact that there’s no women super saiyans, because reasons. =P

      • MasterSensei

        I’m sure Fasha could have become a super saiyan if she, you know, didn’t die…

  • Bryce Blalex Douglas

    I’ve never tripped off everyone being able to go Super Saiyan mostly because everyone up until Goten and Trunks trained really hard to reach that level. And even Goten and Trunks get a pass because they were exposed to it so they were able to pick it up

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      That’s all well and good except that the story itself even says they only come once every so many thousands of years (I forget since it’s been a while, but I want to say 2,000 or 3,000?). After Goku went Super Saiyan though, it just turned into a trend. Though to be fair… Everything after Namek kind of went in the shitter since Toriyama continued the story even though he said he was finished with it.

      • Simmsville

        The way I’ve always seen the ‘lore’ of the super saiyan is that every 1000 years someone who’s strong enough to go super saiyan turned up (and even then only in the Oozaru form), but in reality it’s just a power level limit that needs to be reached. Goku and all the other saiyans fought increasingly stronger opponents, which none of the Saiyans on planet vegeta did, and of course kept getting beat to within an inch of their life, which increases power level exponentially.

        Thus they managed to hit that power level quicker than anyone else, and as for Goten/Trunks – their fathers at the time of conception were already super saiyan, which meant that the limit for them was easier to reach

      • Cry_Zero

        The one that appears every 1000 years or do is the legendary super saiyan who is broly so is does make sense

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Except Goku was considered legendary as well once he hit Super Saiyan? He was the first to bring the legend back to life, then it seems like everyone suddenly began turning Super Saiyan after Namek, which lead to me being unimpressed since it seems like everyone can become one.

          Broly was a different story, but he came at a way later point after Goku became Super Saiyan, so I’d hardly say that he was the first legendary Super Saiyan at the time.

          • Cry_Zero

            They were mistaken when they said son goku was the legendary super saiyan. Its not like at firdt he was and then dont, he never was but they thought he was :D

            • British_Otaku

              More reasonable to go with the logic that Broly doesn’t exist (non-canon after all) and that no “legendary Super Saiyans” exist with that legend being mostly hype with barely anyone making the threshold.

              If we do accept him as a Legendary Super Saiyan, you have to accept that he lost to battered and bruised wimps three times to the movie standard DEMs including the TOEI Punch and to the Sun thing.

        • Anime10121

          Broly isnt canon though is he? He was from a film, and none of the films outside of the newest one are canon. So the legendary Super Saiyan was indeed Goku…

          • Cry_Zero

            really? WHo says that they arent canon :/ ? Back in the days, they said broly is the legendary super saiyan, but maybe nowadays its the super saiyan god they were reffering to

            • Anime10121

              None of the original DBZ movies were canon. They may have had character designs by Toriyama, but the stories area all just as much filler as the Garlic Jr and Goku’s Grand Kai tournament saga’s from DBZ

              • Cry_Zero

                Good to know. I was always wondering since the movies almost told the story of the
                Series but slightly differrnt

      • British_Otaku

        Toriyama “finished the story” at many points including when Pilaf was going to wish on the Dragon Balls for the first time, of course, he did a decent job and continuing it especially as he was planning stuff less earlier on than later on.

        I enjoy the story up to the Frieza Saga I suppose, but it kind of on the way out from the moment the story passed 16 volumes and introduced Raditz.

  • Kyosuke Yoshino

    Just like Trunks, how original!

  • MasterSensei

    At this point everyone and their mom can become a super saiyan…

    • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzHB1V2WZVuJXyU1LKeIJFg Xenado

      not Pan lol

    • Willgaea

      As long as that mom is a dood and has a penis. :P. I’m just messing with you.

      Kinda sad that it’s true about females.

  • MasterSensei

    If they want people to be surprised why not introduce super saiyan Yamcha? At least that will make everyone surprised for a few minutes until we realize that it’s not possible…

    • MrFinalgamer

      Super Saiyan Napa! With golden goatee, and everything!

      • British_Otaku

        Has Dragon Ball Heroes done that?

        *Uses the unreliable wiki*

        Seems not…

        Given that the game has Young Nappa and SSJ3 everyone (GT Vegeta, Vegeta, Broly, Future Trunks, Broly, Vegito, Gogeta, Adult Gotenks), I’m guess they are saving it for the next release.

  • Kobracon

    Wow I haven’t been keeping track on this at all, and I’m a pretty big DBZ fan too…

    Is this a fighting game? an MMO? Action Adventure?

    • British_Otaku

      Dimps (Budokai 1-3, Infinite World, Burst Limit, Shin Budokai 1 + 2 and Dragon Ball Heroes) are back at the helm for the first time in a while for a console DBZ game.

      It looks like a better Tenkaichi than any of the Spike (BT1-3, RB1-2, DBZ Kinect, Ultimate Tenkaichi) games for the whole last generation and it is set to release next year:

      PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360. Barely any information out but some trailers and gameplay of an early build though my expectations are low: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncT1g-fJexs

      • Kobracon

        No shit? If that old team can bring back the magic of Budokai then hell yeah!

        Also, interesting name XD

  • Guy Incognito

    Dragon Ball games are getting stale, 20+ with no new characters nice to see something new thrown in the mix.

    • Anime10121

      “Getting” stale? I thought they’d already passed stale and got rotten after Budokai 3 :P

      • Guy Incognito

        Bear in mind I haven’t played a DBZ game since Raging blast and before that the last one I played was the last SFC game.

      • Samsara09

        well,I would say that Budokai tenkaichi 3 was the limit.After that,shit got real.

  • Samsara09

    Namco,a tip.Forget about DBZ,do games about other mangas and animes…let the idea for a new DBZ to age well,and then develop it.Doing DBZ games like they are CoD is a mistake.You will be repeating the same scheme over and over again.Nowadays,when people talk about DBZ games,it’s with a boring and disappointed tone.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8H8h7g8Es4 we want this,goddamn it!

    • British_Otaku

      Budokai’s OST – The first reason why I didn’t care for Budokai’s HD collection.

      Bandai Namco do experiment with other anime.
      On the 3DS alone, they have delved into Gundam (Card game, Action game, SD SRPG), Super Robot Wars (lots of mecha anime), Precure, One Piece, Detective Conan (yearly mystery games released close to the yearly movies), Aikatsu, Shin Chan, Kuroko no Basket, Magi, Toriko, Digimon, Devils and Realist, Mushibugyo, Naruto SD, Grandpa Dangerous and Gon.

      I’m only counting the things I know have an anime or manga as the primary material, not even the live action stuff. Basically, Bandai Namco milk other stuff, often with games worse than we see from Dragon Ball and it is just that barely any of them get localised.

  • MasterSensei

    I can imagine that Namco and Jump! have Akira Toriyama locked up in their sex dungeon forcing him to make more Dragon Ball Z movies/games… and he’s probably been there for 25 years…

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia

      BTW that’d mean he’s been there since 1989 when DBZ first aired in Japan.

      • MasterSensei

        Sorry, I couldn’t find the exact time when the Freiza saga ended…

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I’m kinda suprised that DBZ games keep coming out though the Anime series was finished in 1996 over in Japan.
