Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Will Instant Transmission to Stadia

Developer and publisher Bandai Namco today announced that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be playable on Google’s Stadia. This marks the first collaboration between Bandai Namco and Google.

In case you missed the news surrounding Stadia: Stadia is an all-new gaming platform that aims to change the way folks access, play, and enjoy their favorite games and brand-new titles – with instant access to play across any screen. With Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the action/fighting game sequel to Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it was initially released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in November 2016 and then on Nintendo Switch in September 2017.

By bringing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to Stadia, Bandai Namco is going to allow even more Super Saiyan-enthusiasts, both old and new, to enjoy all that the game has to offer, like avatar creation, cooperative and versus modes, and of course, plenty of Gokus. This won’t be the first and last mighty collaboration with Stadia, however, as Bandai Namco shared via a press release that they are looking “forward to new opportunities and future collaborations the platform will offer.”

Via the same press release, Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Bandai Namco, shared a little bit about why Bandai Namco decided to partner with Google, and how Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a perfect fit for Stadia:

“Google’s Stadia platform will surely be an exciting addition to the video game marketplace; presenting cutting edge technology that will open players up to even more video game experiences. With a strong fanbase and an active community, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a great selection as BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s first entry into the Stadia ecosystem with which we hope to reach a new audience and continue to achieve our goal to provide more fun for everyone.”

Google’s Stadia is set to launch sometime in November 2019. More details will most likely be revealed during and after E3.
