Creating a unique character is one of Dragon Ball Xenoverse’s key selling points. For the first time in franchise history, players will be able to customize a character by selecting his or her race, appearance, abilities and over 450 additional options. While the system is severely limited by mostly-sensible Dragon Ball universe restrictions, it’s a step in the right direction for both the games and the fans who play them.
Naturally, part of the freedom of customization means your character starts as what is, essentially, a blank slate. You’ll be required to train with classic Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z characters in order to improve and learn many of the 200+ special attacks. Climbing through the ranks won’t be easy, but you’ll eventually be able to train with Goku and adopt his iconic Kamehameha wave — regardless of race, gender and playstyle. In previous titles, the wave was only available to Goku and friends.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse launches in 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
