Dragon Ball Xenoverse Custom Character

Remember back when we saw the original magazine scans for upcoming brawler Dragon Ball Xenoverse, and everyone was pondering about the identity of that unknown fighter in the corner of one of the screenshots? Well, if you said that he was probably some sort of custom character, then congratulations — you were spot on.

Publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed that you'll be able to create your own warrior and take on the villains of the universe alongside your favourite heroes. While creating your own avatar isn't an entirely new concept in a Dragon Ball title, fans should be incredibly excited to hear that you can pick and choose from a multitude of different races found in the franchise, such as Namekians, Saiyans, or even Majins. On top of that, you'll be able to craft your perfect character using a wide variety of visual options like ridiculous hair styles and accessories such as capes or scouters.

From where we're sitting, this sounds like a great way to add some new life to the Dragon Ball story, and we can't wait to see the kinds of fighters that fans dream up. Are you already jotting down ideas? Get some inspiration from the screenshots that we've embedded, and break the sound barrier in the comments section below.
