Dragon Ball Xenoverse Gets Small Delay

by Kyle Hilliard on Jan 10, 2015 at 04:31 AM

Dragon Ball Z's current-gen debut is going to take a little longer to release, but only a few days.

Originally set for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on February 17, the game will now now be available on February 24 – an extra day of waiting commemorating every Dragon Ball, presumably. Dragon Ball Xenoverse will also release on February 27 for PC via Steam.

According to Bandai Namco, the game has been delayed, "In order to ensure the highest possible gameplay experience."

Our Take
Seven days is certainly a manageable delay. Though, I do wonder what additional development or changes could be accomplished in seven days.
