Let it be said, it is never easy to upset the codes of a cult, inter-generational series whose history, in its great breadth, holds no secrets for many of us. Over the last thirty years, the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile has become a myth and altering its scenario is equivalent to jumping out of an aeroplane with pants as the only parachute. The exploits of Son Goku and his clique cannot be touched with impunity and the controversies that have arisen around Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super are there to prove it. For the video game, the situation is identical and the titles stamped Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile, apart from a few exceptions, have never been unanimous. In spite of the wager it represents, the Dragon Ball Xenoverse franchise has shown that the Dragon Ball story is not immutable and that it is possible to shape it, provided that it is integrated into a coherent background. By relying on time travel, while imagining an MMO concept, the Japanese Dimps managed to convince the fans from the very beginning. After a first episode, which has everything in the rough, the publisher Bandai Namco is back in force with a sequel that could put everyone in agreement.
Unsurprisingly, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile takes up the good old formula of its elder brother. After a short introduction, the player is led to choose his class, among the five selectable classes (Majin, Saiyan, Terran, Namek or Freezer Race) and to create his avatar. As each species has different criteria, it is up to you to choose a balanced protagonist, not very powerful but resistant or still fragile but fearsome in the attack. Once this has been done, all that remains is to attack your hero’s facelift by choosing from a handful of options ranging from size to morphology, hair colour or ear shape. As with Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile first, of the name, the possibilities are numerous and you can truly create a hero (or heroine) in your own image – or not – before discovering the new TokiToki, now called Canton City.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile World
The story of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile takes place a few years after the events of the first episode. Without revealing anything to you, you should know that it features vile individuals who have decided to upset fate by changing the events that were supposed to happen. As in the original, your mission is to travel to other eras to correct temporal flaws, while participating in multiple side activities. Accompanied by Trunks, you will have to relive the most mythical confrontations (Raditz, Nappa, Vegeta, the Ginyu Commando, Freezer, the Cyborgs, Cell, etc.) by taking part in a plethora of alternative sequences. For example, Krilin, as he is about to deal Vegeta the fatal blow, will be stopped by your avatar. Similarly, Ginyu will not only take the form of Goku but also of Trunks. Although the scenario is by no means revolutionary, it allows you to have a good time and to enjoy a beautiful staging. But this main storyline (with sometimes dreadful difficulty) is only a part of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile which remains, like its elder, a massively multiplayer world intended for the general public.
The MMO spirit is fully respected and all the elements that have made Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile strength. But what strikes you first is the size of the map! Conton City is indeed 7 times bigger than TokiToki, can accommodate up to 300 players and offers a much more pronounced difference in altitude. Much more varied and pleasant to walk through, it is one of the symbols of this sequel. At first, it is not easy to find your way around but just press the R2 (or RT key on Xbox One) to display the highlighted map. From the shopping area to the business district and the bamboo forest, each sector has its own style. And to avoid having to walk around Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile world, the developers had a good idea to integrate vehicles (which can be called up at any time via a dedicated key), allowing longer distances to be covered in a minimum of time. After a while, you will also get the right to fly. Compared to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile, the change of scenery is total and will delight all those who were disappointed by the narrowness of the first city. Of course, you get used to it and you quickly end up going around it, but this diversity is more than welcome.
A 7 STAR MENU
As one might expect, Dimps went to great lengths to densify the contents of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile. In addition to the Time Nest, which allows the player to follow the main story, the player can complete parallel quests and take part in battles, both offline and online. For the latter, free combat is equivalent to facing the computer, while local combat focuses on the two-player mode. As for secondary missions, these are classified by difficulty and, if successful, give access to a maximum number of rewards. The real strength of the game comes, once again, from its community aspect. If it is possible to recruit NPCs by taking the weight of a few zenis, you can do the same with human teammates. In this case, you need to dismantle your offline team and create an online team. Furthermore, like any self-respecting MMO, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile offers a chat room (with almost 80 automatic phrases) and a series of gestures to greet or clown around. It’s classic, but still just as effective!
Finally, and because you don’t change a winning team, the shops are obviously part of the game. Clothes, techniques, accessories… they are all there and are now accompanied by the mix shop (to combine certain objects), the space-time delivery (offering additional events and gifts) or the PT medals shop, which is only open on certain days of the week. These medals, which represent the new (and second) currency of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Mobile, give access to special items, but logically they are becoming rarer.
