Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 [SWITCH XCI]
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was a massive game on other platforms and is even bigger on the Switch. The visual downgrades were expected, but the removal of the gray filter present on other platforms actually makes the Switch version look better overall, in this scribe’s opinion at least.The original Xenoverse never saw the light of day on a Nintendo platform, so Bandai thoughtfully included the entirety of the original story mode for Nintendo loyalists that haven’t yet played it. To access them, once you’ve beaten a saga in Xenoverse 2’s story you’ll find a helpful little bot that will let you play that same saga the way it was presented in the original. It’s a thoughtful addition that Bandai certainly didn’t need to make, but is definitely welcome.
Beyond the story mode, which can only be played solo, Xenoverse 2 offers a number of alternate-universe missions called Parallel Quests. In a Parallel Quest you won’t get any kind of narrative cutscenes, but you’ll be placed often on the opposing side of an iconic battle, such as helping Frieza defeat Super Saiyan Goku, or helping Cell defeat Gohan. You’ll also participate in some non-canon battles such as those found in the Dragon Ball GT series or in any of the movies.
The brilliantly rendered cutscenes, deep character customisation and fine-tuned fighting mechanics make for a title that is easy to pick up but hard to put down. This is another case of a game that makes one wonder just how much developers can do with Nintendo’s diminutive console. Fans of fighting games and Dragon Ball alike should look forward to picking this one up.
