Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a series of fighting games based on the Dragon Ball series developed by Dimps, who previously developed the Budokai series.

The first Xenoverse game was released in early 2015 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with the sequel following in late 2016.
About Dragon Ball
Dragon Ball is a manga series by Akira Toriyama. It first began its serialisation in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1984. The manga was later adapted into a multitude of animated series, movies, and games.
The franchise consists of five different anime series, about 21 animated movies, and around 10 games spanning various platforms, from Famicon to Playstation and Xbox.
Synopsis of the Dragon Ball anime:
Goku Son is a young boy who lives in the woods all alone—that is until a girl named Bulma runs into him in her search for a set of magical objects called the “Dragon Balls.”
Since the artefacts are said to grant one wish to whoever collects all seven, Bulma hopes to gather them and wish for a perfect boyfriend.
Goku happens to be in possession of a dragon ball, but unfortunately for Bulma, he refuses to part ways with it, so she makes him a deal: he can tag along on her journey if he lets her borrow the dragon ball’s power.
With that, the two set off on the journey of a lifetime.
