Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Bandai Namco remains invested in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. As we found out with the latest issue of V Jump, new DLC is in development. Bandai Namco has confirmed that the content is coming to the west this fall, and a free update is planned.

We do know that Dabura and Buu (Gohan Absorbed) are headlining the DLC as playable DLC. Zamasu will also be around to teach created characters his attacks as a master / mentor.

First screenshots of the DLC in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 are below.

Just like in Japan, Bandai Namco is including content from the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch and offering it in in the west. The process of gaining access is just slightly different.

For the Japanese release, Bandai Namco had the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1 content built right in. Once you cleared certain sections of the story in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, you’re able to access segments from the original by talking to a particular NPC. But from what we understand, for the western version, you first need to download the a pack from the eShop.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is out today on Switch, and Bandai Namco put out a new trailer to remind us all of that. Have a look at the video below.

Bandai Namco did something interesting for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on Switch. After completing certain sections, you can access story content from the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse.

It’s actually pretty simple. As long as you finish one story in Xenoverse 2, you can access the story from the original. So after completing the Buu saga in Xenoverse 2 for instance, the Xenoverse 1 version will be unlocked.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch sold quite well in its first week in Japan. Between September 7 and September 10, it sold about 24,000 copies.

Dengeki adds that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 sold through 80 percent of its initial shipment. Indeed, that’s a high percentage. Bandai Namco previously said that the game was selling out in the country and more shipments will be carried out later in the month. The sell-through rate tells us that 30,000 copies were sent to stores for the initial batch.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be out this coming week in North America and Europe. It’ll be interesting to see how the game does in the west.


Bandai Namco has new content planned for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. A new scan from V Jump reveals the latest upcoming DLC.

Dabura, Gohan-absorbed form of Super Buu and Zamasu are coming to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Zamasu will be available to teach created characters his attacks as a master / mentor.

A release date for the new DLC hasn’t been announced, but we should have more news soon.


It seems like Bandai Namco added a curious limitation to the Switch version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. The game deactivates the system’s share button during cutscenes, meaning you’re unable to take screenshots of those moments. This was presumably done to prevent spoilers from being spread on social media, but it seems like a strange decision given that the game has been out on other systems for a while now and isn’t exactly narrative-driven to begin with.

It remains to be seen if Bandai Namco will do the same with other Switch games in the future, and if other developers will follow their example.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 debuted for Switch in Japan this week. Specifically, the game launched on Thursday. We’ll need to wait until next week to see how it’s performed so far, but based on Bandai Namco’s reports, it’s off to a strong start.

Yesterday, Bandai Namco published a tweet saying that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a big hit on Switch. That was followed up by another message earlier today stating that there’s a bit of a shortage for the physical version. More shipments are planned towards the end of this month.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a couple of weeks away from launching on Switch in the west, but it arrived in Japan earlier today. That means footage is starting to hit the net, including the video below with 38 minutes of gameplay.
