Having enjoyed some surprising critical success, last year's release of Dragon Ball XenoVerse proved to be something of a new watermark for video games based around the Dragon Ball Z franchise - little wonder then that it's getting a sequel, with yesterday seeing Bandai Namco Entertainment confirm that a second game in the XenoVerse series is in development, and slated for a European release on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Unsurprisingly titled Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2, here's some more courtesy of the publisher's press release:
