Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

 

 

Bandai Namco Entertainment America is proud to announce the arrival of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Nintendo Switch for players in the Americas. The biggest and most massive Dragon Ball game yet is now ready to be played anywhere, and at any time. It includes new controls and gameplay features exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Using the Joy-Con controllers, players can perform famous moves like the spirit bomb and the KAMEHAMEHA.

To celebrate the launch of the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Bandai Namco Entertainment America has also released a new launch trailer:

 

Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. commented on the launch:

“The Nintendo Switch presents innovative and fun new ways to experience DRAGON BALL Xenoverse 2, it’s also a great starting point to introduce Nintendo Switch fans to the DRAGON BALL universe. The XENOVERSE series of DRAGON BALL games have expanded the DRAGON BALL universe in ways that were unimaginable only a few years ago. Now with DRAGON BALL Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch, we’re expanding the DRAGON BALL experience further, through creative use of the Nintendo Switch’s unique features and control design.”

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 takes place several years after the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse game. Once again, players are a Time Patroller who must set history back on the right course. There are new characters and a custom character creation mode with robust features. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has a new hub city known as Conton City, which is 7 times the size of the previous game’s hub city. Here are some screenshots of the city:

 

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has an ESRB rating of “T for Teen”. You can grab a copy for $49.99. There are also other versions of the game on PC (Steam), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. You find out more at the game’s official website. Lastly, here are some battle screenshots:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
