One of the best parts about the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 update are the variations for Hit and SSGSS Goku. These two variations could have easily been paid DLC, so seeing Bandai Namco make them free was a nice touch. Fans have been wondering how different these variations are from the versions of the characters already in the game.
This variation of Hit feels completely different from the base version. While his regular combos are the same, his super moves are completely different. Plus, his super moves now have the same effects that were seen in the anime, which is a nice touch.
However, players will also have to be more defensive with this variation of Hit. While the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 update gave him a transformation that ups his attack, his defense has also been decreased. The game does kind of compensate for this by giving him a quick back counter and previously mentioned transformation, which can be used twice. However, his super moves have to be executed fairly near to the opponent.
Players that have used Goku before should have no problem using this new variation. This version of the character has God Fist and a regular Kamehameha as super moves. His ultimate moves are exactly the same as the base SSGSS Goku, so players shouldn’t have a hard time getting used to him.
A real game changer that the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 update adds is the Kaioken transformation. Called Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken, Goku can use this twice while fighting. The first one increases his strength decently while also slowly decreasing his health. However, his Kaioken x 10 transformation ups his strength significantly but also decreases his life quickly.
More Variations Coming?
Considering how different the play styles are, it will be interesting to see how they do other variations in future updates. Bandai Namco has promised a number of free updates, along with premium DLC that can be purchased via the season pass.
Fans should be able to get the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 update now on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC update will be coming out ?soon,? but no actual date was given.
