Character Creation, Not Story, Best Part of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Says Chris Sabat

Story alone won't be the biggest appeal for Dragon Ball Xenoverse, according to legendary voice actor Christopher Sabat.

In a recent interview he did with Polygon, Sabat stated that character customization is where players would have most fun.

"I think the new story is cool, but I think where a lot of people are going to have a lot of fun in this game is the customized characters," Sabat told Polygon.

"There's so many ways to customize characters. I think most people would get their money's worth just by popping open the game and making a character that they want to make."

"They've done crude versions of a character creator before," Sabat continued, "but nothing like this. When you make a character in Xenoverse, it looks like something that Akira Toriyama could have made."

The character creation mechanic is one of Xenoverse's biggest selling points. You could make your own custom warrior in Ultimate Tenkaichi. But, like Sabat said, it wasn't comparable to Xenoverse.

Sabat is one of the most prolific voice actors in Dragon Ball--responsible for playing Vegeta, Piccolo, Shenron, and Yamcha. However, it wasn't Sabat who made the "It's over 9000!" line famous.

That was Brian Drummond, who voiced Vegeta in the Ocean Dub of the show.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse launches February 24 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Steam PC. For more about the upcoming title, visit its official website here.
