By Ishaan . June 23, 2014 . 10:31am

Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Bandai Namco’s next major Dragon Ball game, will have a new character partaking in several popular battles from across the series.


Namco say this character has the potential to “rewrite Dragon Ball history,” although details on just who he is are scarce at the moment. Namco have, however, released a few screenshot of the character, which you can view below.


Dragon Ball Xenoverse is in development for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

  • He just looks like Adult Gohan with dark red hair.

  • ivanchu77

    Looks like a shitty original character from Deviantart

    • Seriously, what’s wrong with Deviantart?

      • riceisnice

        It’s not Deviantart. It’s the fact that there is this “thing” that goes on over there with many many people making their own characters based off of beloved franchise.

      • British_Otaku

        Shitty OCs are shitty OCs.
        DeviantArt is a big site which gets a lot of fans making artwork and eventually diving into OCs, so no surprise.

        If other sites with big fandoms focused on getting pictures out there as well, they would have the exact same issue.

  • Pinwheel

    So basically it’s Gohan with Super Saiyan God hair and a majority of Trunks’s outfit.

    • Cazar

      I’m hoping that’s exactly what it is, and not some awful attempt and a completely original character.

  • BlitzWhat

    Calling it now, it’s Future Gohan from a timeline where he didn’t jump in to save Trunks.

  • Rentekabond

    This is part of the reason I have so little respect for Toriyama’s artwork.

    • PragmaticSoul

      At least Chrono Trigger was godly.

      • Rentekabond

        Trigger still falls under “Oh hey, it’s Dragonball the rpg!”, but I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt because that came out way back in his heyday and before 90% of everything he did just looked like DBZ.

  • DeAndre Atchison

    5 bucks says he’s a saiyan.

  • James Reilly

    So… Red hair adult Gohan with a scouter, Piccolo’s Cape, Future Trucks outfit. Looks like something off a create-a-fighter-mode with these accessory choices mixed in. Looks worse then people wearing socks with sandals.

  • Kengofu

    It’s not Gohan. It’s his secret brother, “Mysterious Fighter X”

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking


  • I bet this game makes you to create a character before you start the story mode. That makes more sense.

  • vileBrenman

    Obviously this game has a character create mode and that’s just some Frankenstein character created by mashing together other characters

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      What if this character is special original character for only this game like mecha naruto and this game has no character creation mode ._.

      • British_Otaku

        For some reason, I would like that more as they might give this Mysterious New Character some charm if they are forced to work with him.

        At this rate, we will have thousands of dull blank and exchangeable slates for characters on release day or perhaps just when the demo releases. I have no doubt that they will fail to give us any decent options for creation (different races, different gender, different builds, different ages) even if they have a year longer to get it done.

        • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

          All i want is characters from gt saga no matter how many people hates it i will always love it that ss4 is fan made yeah but it still appeared in video games but what about ss5 that’s fan made none ever got in games except internet mugen and modded dragon ball budokai 3 which is dragon ball budokai 3 A/F pre modded db game in ps2 era .all i wanna say is ss4 isn’t fan made even if it isd it has a real purpose instead of ss5 or GOD gohan or GOD vegeta i waited in hope that this is a ps4 db game i think we will get some ss4 characters and yet again i was let down by a newly red haired future adult gohan bullshit -_- even mechaa naruto orginal charracter look good that this since that game is already broilen atleast don’t let db fans down Akira Toriyama san -.-

          • British_Otaku


            Super Saiyan 4 wasn’t fan made.
            People have a problem with it because it wasn’t in the manga, doesn’t seem to be consistent with Toriyama’s work and was in GT which was a creation created by the anime studio Toei (who also did the DB and DBZ anime).

            And Toriyama is rarely connected to the development of DB games, the only two cases are Super DBZ (he designed a character) and Dragon Ball Online (he did some of the premise and character designs).

  • Federico

    I’m hoping they’re bringing back the character creation.

  • Inuyakira

    Finally a dragon ball game that look really promising!
    it’s seem it got a kinda original story!
    and it’s made by Dimp!!
    I will so get that game!!
    i haven’t bought a dragon ball game since Raging Blast 1!
    which was a deception..
    But this look more and more good!!
    Can’t wait!

  • Cephrien

    As long as the game is awesome I could care less who that is or how generic and fanfic-y his story turns out to be.

  • John Diamond

    Just bring back super sonic warrior’s “What if” storys again.
    those were radical

  • ifidontwhowill

    This new character looks awful. Looks like something some 12 year old would make in a character creator and thinks it’s cool. If they are seriously wasting time creating this character then they better have all the other damn characters. People want a roster that will beat out BT3, not some crappy original character.

    • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

      I’d rather not have BT3 roster too many useless characters. At least take out the foot soldiers

      • ifidontwhowill

        No, maybe we don’t need a couple of those characters, but for whatever reason DBZ games now seem to pick and choose which characters they want to put in and just ignore the rest. Raging Blast 2 introduces Hatchiyack and Tarble and they are both gone in the next games. Battle of Z comes around and introduces Bills and Whis and what will happen to them? What about Garlic Jr.? What about Turles? What about Evil Buu? I’m sorry if i’m ranting, but i’m tired of the constant roster reset. Broly always seems to be a staple now as well as Bardock, but you can never count on the movie villains being in the games anymore.

        • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

          Yeah no worries I know where you’re coming from. I feel the same way. My only problem with the BT3 roster was not everyone had a lot of variety to their movesets. Soldiers just seemed to be useless clones. But I totally see what you’re saying dude.

          • The soldiers were really only intended to be cannon fodder like the Saibamen anyhow. They just made them playable because you know someone would have complained if they didn’t.

            We need a roster like BT3 but they need to expand on the movesets more like they did in Raging Blast.

  • That’s Time Patrol Trunks from Dragon Ball Online.




    Maybe this new guy is a character from that timeline who goes into the past and interacts with the Z Fighters throughout the sagas like DBO does.

    In terms of rewriting Dragon Ball history, it could be making an attempt to bring DBO’s story into canon territory, making different races such as Majins and more Namekians. This could mean (in a stretch) the overwriting of anime only story of GT, where instead of Goten being a ladies man, he and Trunks founded a martial arts school as adults and tought many new fighting skills to their students.

    ‘Xenoverse’ apparently means something like multiple universes.

    The word Xeno relates to a foreigner, which Character X could be; (I’m naming him!) A foriegner from an alternate universe who aids the Z Fighters.


    Just a theory, I could be way off.

  • Christopher Nunes

    Original character or a Created Character used as red herring to make people think it’s just a new character Dimps is adding into the game?

    I REALLY hope it’s a Created Character that player makes and appears throughout the DBZ Sagas to help out the cast. Please let this be the truth!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    so hes not a custom character… bummer

  • gulabjamal

    It’s future future Gohan with his hair dyed. I’m sure of it. His hairstyle is similar plus they would pair him with trunks and they would show a shot of him protecting his younger self. I’m calling it!!

  • MaskedHeroxx

    I dont like him…

    Plus it looks like gohan god mode -_-

  • Nice Boat Quatro
    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      Wtf is this X.X my ears and eyes hurt

    • Byron Kerrison II


  • Zertan

    … So he have Future Trunks Jacket, Piccolo’s Cape, and a scouter…

    I don’t know what he is. But I can guess.

    He are one of Freeza’a men who had deserted from him and lived till Future Trunks time period, when back in time to before Raditz’s defeat.

    Accidentally beat Raditz up and wow Piccolo to the point where he want to train you as well as Gohan.

    Yes he looks like a self insert DBZ character.

  • Looks like ssj4/god Gohan

  • Daniel blue

    He’s going to be friends with every hero and defeat every major villain.

    He’s also going to be loved and admired by everyone, and praised as the greatest warrior in the universe.

    His name shall be Marty Stu.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery
  • XiaomuArisu

    Red-hair Gohan + Trunks outfit + Picollo coat = New Original Charcter

  • Janrabbit

    HAHAHAHAHA new original character is somebody’s character creation from Ultimate Tenkaichi
