New Dragon Ball Xenoverse Could Have Super Saiyan Gods

By Alex Morrison

The latest installment in the Dragon Ball series was recently revealed at E3 and will be called - wait for it - Dragon Ball Xenoverse. The word 'xeno' means something that is foreign, whether it be a place or a person. It's a strange name for sure, but after watching the trailer, it might make some sense.

The video opens with - surprise, surprise - Goku fighting Vegeta. But the narrator quickly moves on, urging players to "break tradition", declaring that a "new excitement awaits". We are then shown what appears to be a new character. 

Like all franchises whose television days are over, but whose gaming days are alive and abundant, they've actually had the brains to do something new with the series. Hoorah! 

As to who this new red-haired character could be? Maybe it's Gohan. The hair certainly matches. He could have learned to become a Super Saiyan God and chose to adopt some of Piccolo's attire. You do remember the Cell Saga, right?

And for those of you who haven't caught up with DBZ, a Super Saiyan God looks like this. 

But you never know. The unknown fighter could be anyone, even an entirely new character. The only thing to suggest that he's not completely new is the line "a clock that once had stopped, will start to tick again". This could mean a continuation of some previously unexplored story arcs. 

Check out the video below for yourself.
