With just a few more weeks before the much awaited release of “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2,” more features are on the way, including the Manga Version.
Called “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: The Manga,” Capsule Computersreported that before the game’s release, the official Dragon Ball Z Facebook Page revealed that the Time Patrol Guide included in the collector’s edition of “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2” will also have a 10-page manga about the game itself.
There’s no clue as to what the story will be about, but official Bandai Namco page revealed the first page at least, which shows the Saiyan Time Patroller from the usual trailer released for “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.”
The Manga is illustrated by world-famous Akira Toriyama’s student, Toyotaro. Toriyama also had a speciall message included in the manga as follows’
“I’ve been drawing manga less often these days, so Toyotaro has has taken up the mantle of drawing Dragon Ball. I still contribute the basic ideas, but Toyotaro’s wonderful skills allow the Dragon Ball universe to be brought back to life in the present.”
As Toriyama’s disciple, Toyotaro has been doing several “Dragon Ball” related mangas and spinoffs as well as some “Dragon Ball Super” manga releases. The manga, however, is a bit different from what TOEI has been releasing as separate parties have been interpreting the rough story details that Toriyama provides.
“Dragon Ball Xenovese 2” is scheduled to be released this coming October 25 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam). The collector’s edition that includes the manga is priced at $149.96 on Amazon. The standard edition is priced at $59.99 only.
The pre-order bonus includes a playable character from “Dragon Ball Super,” the Tao Pai Pai Stick Vehicle, and a free “Dragon Ball Z Vol. 1” digital code from Comixology.
