According to the latest trailer that was released by Bandai Namco for Dragon ball Xenoverse 2, it was revealed that there is a new antagonistic character making its debut in the game. The Powerful playable fighter Black Goku comes as a bonus for those who pre-order Dragon ball Xenoverse 2 when it launches this month.
The gameplay footage that is showcased in the new trailer of Dragon ball Xenoverse 2 shows Black Goku demolishing Super Saiyan God Vegeta. The attack style and movement of Goku Black are quite similar to that of the original Goku. The differences are that Goku Black has an embedded dark purple energy in his Kamehameha while the original Goku has bright blue hue.
The new Goku Black making his entrance in Dragon ball Xenoverse 2 has actually confirmed a few fan theories, one of which is that the anime Dragon Ball Super, might also have the same Goku Black and will be able to travel through time by the use of a special ring. The story of Dragon ball Xenoverse 2 is that there are villains who travel through time to wreak havoc in different timelines, and are joining forces to attack the heroes. However, Goku Black’s role in the Dragon ball Xenoverse 2 story is yet to be made clear, the only hint is that he may be the one responsible for the time traveling of the other villains.
Note that Dragon ball Xenoverse 2 will be released on October 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. If you go for the pre-order, you get Goku Black as a bonus playable character!
