When Dragon Ball Xenoverse releases in 2015 for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3 it will be one of the few Dragon Ball games to feature a character creator and from the screenshots we have so far it already seems to be leagues above the character creator featured in the poorly received Ultimate Tenkaichi.

Several new official artworks have also been added to the gallery below showcasing the types of characters you can create displaying both race and gender differences. Lastly, another official post by the website gave us some more exciting details, expanding on what we can expect from the story and customisation.
