With all the excitement that Dragon Ball FighterZ has drummed up for the legendary franchise, it’s easy to forget that it’s not even the only hit Bandai Namco has on its hands right now. There is also Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, a game that I would argue captures the frenetic “fly everywhere and blast everything” combat of the series perfectly. And not to be outdone by the pending arrival of Broly DBS in FighterZ, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will receive Super Uub this winter in Ultra DLC Pack #2.
Uub was basically the good guy reincarnation of evil Buu, introduced at the end of Dragon Ball Z. In now non-canon Dragon Ball GT, Uub eventually merged with fat good guy Majin Buu to become Super Uub. The character had a great, classic design and was generally fun to watch fight, so it’s a shame he went a little underutilized. Uub has been teased in Dragon Ball Super though.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be Super Uub’s time to shine, as he uses the four following attacks according to Siliconera:
- Flash Chaser – A ki attack that allows you to change its directions using inputs.
- Dragon Quick Attack – Starts with a knee kick to a kick combo, followed by various connections including a punch or heel drop and such.
- Inside Buster – An evasive move that charges and launches ki for an escape. You can increase the power by mashing the button while charging.
- Lightning Force – An ultimate attack where Uub charges energy in an invulnerable state and scatters it around him. While charging you can also button mash to increase its power.
Additionally, Master Raid will add 2v4 battles, and Photo Mode will allow friends to take pictures in Conton City.
Admittedly, it’s been a long time since I played Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, and when I did it was on PlayStation 4. But I really enjoyed its mix of strategy and button-mashing, so if you need more DB in your life beyond FighterZ, consider picking this one up.
