The Dragon Ball Z universe is no stranger to having its lore butchered – ahem, Dragon Ball GT – however, it looks like Bandai Namco is trying to find a way to constructive “rewrite DRAGON BALL history as we know it”. To do this, it looks like Bandai Namco is introducing a new character in its new Dragon Ball Xenoverse game which is due out on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3 in the not too distant future. At first glance, the character looks a lot like Gohan with red hair, however he also bears the hallmarks of quite a few other characters in DBZ; the scouter is a dead ringer for a Saiyan, his outfit looks to come from Capsule Corp, and perhaps most intriguingly, his cape bears striking resemblance to Piccolo’s.
Apart from that information, it’s not entirely clear exactly how this character is going to change up history, but as you can see from the new screenshots, the mystery character is taking part in quite a few iconic fights throughout the Dragon Ball Z series. Seeing as the new character bears a myriad of iconic features, it might also mean you will get the opportunity to create your own character from a selection of customizations, of which one possible outcome is our red-haired friend here. Whatever the deal is, we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
