Dragon Ball Z fans will have alot to be excited about this fall as Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the sequel to last year’s hit Dragon Ball Xenoverse will hit the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on October 25th, while the PC version will do the same via Steam on the 28th.
Bandai Namco also revealed today that the game will feature music and remixes by Grammy-nominated DJ Steve Aoki. Aoki will add his musical styling to the Dragon Ball Z universe in the form of remixes of several of the TV anime’s most famous songs, including “Cha-la-Head-Cha-la“, the anime’s first intro, and “We gotta Power.” In addition to producing music for the game, Aoki will also appear in the game’s hub city of Conton as a Non-Playable Character that players will be able to interact with.
“Having grown up with Dragon Ball, I jumped at the chance to contribute my talents and leave my personal impact on the series.” Stated Aoki in a press release from Bandai Namco.
The original Dragon Ball Xenoverse allowed players to create their own avatar from one of DBZ’s many different races and then tasked them with stopping a pair of villains bent on altering the world’s timeline for their own gain. The game featured famous moments from throughout the Dragon Ball canon, ranging from the Sayin invasion of Earth all the way up to the resurrection of Majin Buu, but presented them as a series of What If…? Scenarios that were slightly off or had gone in a darker direction, the player’s job was then to work with Time Patrol to correct the error and return things to normal. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will likely present similar time-spanning adventure, but add more characters, locations, and events that didn’t make it into the first game.
