I’ve loved fighting games since I played titles like International Karate and Bruce Lee on the Commodore 64.
Later, games like International Karate+ and Street Fighter II on the Amiga 500 and Virtua Fighter (which I still prefer over Tekken!) caught my interest.
But lately, manga-inspired fighting games – such as those from the Dragon Ball universe – have caught my interest.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (aka DBX2 or DBXV 2) is an interesting game you can play online with friends. It’s a fighting and role-playing game where you’ll improve your character.
This isn’t a standard one-on-one fighting game like Street Fighter. You will be tasked with exploring environments, fighting multiple enemies, tackling boss characters, and working with other Dragon Ball fighters.
The game is available for multiple platforms, which begs the question, is Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 cross-platform?
Unfortunately, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 isn’t cross-platform. However, DBXV 2 is cross-generation through backward compatibility on Xbox and PlayStation. That means you can cross-play with friends on PS4 if you have an Xbox Series X/S and with friends on PS4 if you own a PS5.
