Upcoming fighting game Dragon Ball Xenoverse has had its launch date pushed back much like how Gohan's kamehameha pushed back Cell's one during the Cell saga. Originally scheduled for release on February 17, the game will now launch a week later.

Publisher Bandai Namco announced the delay, saying that it was necessary in order to "ensure the highest possible gameplay experience" for players. Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 24. A PC release on Steam will follow on February 27.

The game is developed by Dimps, who also worked on the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series and co-developed Street Fighter IV. Xenoverse will feature a character creator, and players will be able to choose from a variety of races including Saiyans, Namekians, Earthlings, and Majins.
