The new trailer confirms that Time Breaker Bardock will be included in the game, along with Imperfect Cell and Android 16.

In the "Dragon Ball" universe, Bardock is a low-class Saiyan warrior, the husband of Gine, and the father of Raditz and Goku. Meanwhile, Imperfect Cell, when in perfect mode, is the ultimate creation of Dr. Gero designed to have all the abilities of the greatest fighters to have ever lived or visited Earth. As for Android 16, he is another of Dr. Gero's creations who was originally designed to serve Gero's vendetta against Goku.

New characters, such as Zarbon, Turles and Janemba are also coming to "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2." Janemba is the main antagonist in the film "Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn." Zarbon is one of the villains in the "Dragon Ball Z" anime, while Turles is a rogue Saiyan who bears a strong resemblance to Goku.

Apart from these characters, the upcoming project will also have new places to explore.
