Cue the collective “I knew it!” as Bandai Namco Games has just revealed the details regarding the mystery character from the upcoming game Dragon Ball Xenoverse. According to Bamco, the character is actually you, the player. This means it’s a custom-created avatar, something that fans have already suspected for quite some time due to the character looking like it’s wearing a “clown suit.”
In MMORPG lingo, a “clown suit” is a set of mismatched gear that a player wears not for looks, but because of its individual attributes. In some cases, clown suits are also worn because the player still can’t afford a matching set.
It is said that Dragon Ball Xenoverse’s story has Trunks summoning your character in order to help him with a time-travelling quest. The character creation tool allows players to choose costumes and physical features from various races that include Earthling, Majin, Namekian, and others. People who managed to play the Dragon Ball RPG that didn’t reach the West (those b-tards!) will find it familiar.
Here’s a bunch of screenshots that show off some of the characters that you can cook up:
