When a new game in a series comes out, it's expected that development on the older one will cease as everyone, fans and developers alike, move on to what's new. That's not to be the case with Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
and Dragon Ball FighterZ
— in fact, quite the opposite it seems as publisher Bandai Namco announced new content on the way for the former and that there will be a collaboration between the two titles, with yet-to-be-detailed special items to be given to those who own both titles.
With this news, both games received new trailers, albeit for rather different reasons. Dragon Ball FighterZ
's trailer is the game's first story trailer, with the series' most famous character Goku having no idea who he is.
The two Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
trailers instead focus on some of that new content that is coming. The first shows two and a half minutes of the "Hero Colosseum", a new game mode set to be added to the game as part of a free update.
The second trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
and final of the three overall, gives us gameplay of Tapion and Android 13, two of four new fighters coming to the game in "Extra Pack 1", one of two such paid packs detailed by publisher Bandai Namco.
The other pack, unsurprisingly named "Extra Pack 2", is set to add a new, original character to the game as well as a new scenario, a new way to interact with the game's other characters and even an all-new form for Goku. They have said that more details will be coming, so presumably it will get its own trailer eventually too, closer to its release.
There's lots of news for Dragon Ball
fans then! Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
is out now with both the "Hero Colloseum" free update and paid "Extra Pack 1" coming to the game some time this autumn. Dragon Ball FighterZ
then makes it way to Xbox One (with Xbox One X enhancements) on January 26th, 2018.Check out our The Best Xbox Fighting Games Available in 2018 article for a compilation of other great games in this genre.
