Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: How It Can Be Better Than Its Predecessor

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 might not have set the world on fire when it was announced, but fans of the anime definitely dug the news. The first game might not have been perfect, but the huge roster of characters and the hundreds of customizable options for the player?s avatar made the package a fairly fun one for fans of the series.

Now that a sequel is coming, it?s clear that a few improvements have to be made to make it better than its predecessor. While the improved graphics and new characters are nice, there are a few more things that the game can do to outperform the original. Here are some of those.

A Menu for Game Modes

One of the annoying aspects of the first game is how difficult it to have a simple VS fight with friends in the house. Instead of simply pressing Versus on a main menu, the first Xenoverse had players go to a lobby in the hub to access the mode.

While not a major problem, it would make VS fights smoother. The Menu would also be helpful for viewing cutscenes or replaying missions so players won?t have to travel through various locations to get to them.

Offline Mode

Admittedly, the main appeal of the first Xenoverse was seeing other players? custom avatars and helping them get loot from side quests. While this was definitely fun, the first few days of the game suffered from connection issues, so it took a while before players could properly enjoy the game.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 should offer players an offline mode. This would be really helpful for players who don?t mind grinding Saibaman by themselves. While the first game did have offline capability, it only came after confirming that the Internet connection was weak. Having the option to jump straight into the game without Internet would be great.

Loot Conditions

Getting Loot from the first Xenoverse was hard work since players weren?t always sure if they would get the gear they want. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 could fix this by simply placing specific conditions to get specific loot. This would make it easier to grind for Vegeta?s Saiyan armor, among other outfits.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is slated for a 2016 release on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
