Dragon Ball XenoVerse (ドラゴンボール ゼノバース, Doragon Bōru Zenobāsu), officially shortened to Dragon Ball XV, is a game developed by Dimps and published by Bandai-Namco Games for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and Steam. It was released on February 27, 2015 in Europe, February 24th in North America, and February 5th in Japan. It was the first Dragon Ball game released for the eighth generation console. It features an original plot as well as several elements from Dragon Ball Online and Dragon Ball Heroes.

It was followed by Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2.


Future Warrior Xenoverse

The player character in XenoVerse.

Dragon Ball XenoVerse returned the concept of custom character construction to the console systems. Last seen in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, character customization has been upgraded and players are given a whole host of new choices. Players can choose between a hero who is Saiyan, Human, Nameccian, Majin, or from Freeza's clan. Additionally, if the player chooses to be a Saiyan, Human, or a Majin, they are also given the option of a male or female character. After a species is selected, the player can then fully customize their character, including their hair, eyes, facial features, as well as the color of their skin, hair, and eyes. They are also given a range of voices to choose from for their character. Once the character is complete, the player is transported to Toki-Toki City, where the game begins.

Fighting is set in 3D destructible environments. Most stages are very large and all provide a free-roam environment, allowing the player to fight on the ground, in the air, and underwater. Depending on the characters present in any given fight, XenoVerse features dialogue between said characters, and also includes facial expressions when they cause damage or receive damage. In addition to a story unique to the game, the player can embark on Parallel Quests to obtain Zeni and other rewards. They can also train under various characters from the Dragon Ball cast—both allies and villains.

Overall, not counting downloadable content, XenoVerse contains over 200 special moves, 450 costume items, 12 master quests, 50 Parallel Quests, and 400 equipment pieces to select from.[2]
