Bandai Namco has released a new, extended trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse, showing more of the game's plot, gameplay, online multiplayer and fighter customizations.

Dragon Ball Z games that simply recreate the Saiyan, Namek, Android, Cell and Majin Buu sagas of the series have been done to death over the past 15 years. Luckily, Dragon Ball Xenoverse puts an excellent twist on things by unraveling time. The appearances of some new characters who have the ability to alter the past have resulted in some extraordinary scenarios in DBZ history. What if Raditz dodged Gohan's headbutt and Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon, resulting in Goku dying by accident and Raditz winning? This new trailer teases at such changes and the game will put it on your new character to set things right. Your custom-made character can be outfitted with every possible clothing ensemble combination you can think of -- you can even wear Bardock's armor with the Ox-King's helmet from the original Dragon Ball series.

Thanks to Anime News Network, we have found this scanned page from an issue of Famitsu that depicts the new characters of Dragon Ball Xenoverse. At the top of the picture, you can see Towa and Mira, the new villains. Towa is an evil researcher from a dark planet who wants to rewrite history. Mira is Towa's powerhouse of a bodyguard who wants to help destroy the past as well. At the bottom left of the picture is Toki no Kaioshin, the Kai of Time, and her feathery companion, Toki Toki. Both of these characters have the ability to manipulate time and it is likely that the Kai of Time will summon your new Z Warrior to undo the chaos Towa is causing.

Your custom-made Z Fighter will go back in time when Dragon Ball Xenoverse launches in 2015 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Don't forget, Piccolo is one of the Most Ripped Dudes in Video Games.
