Dragon Ball has been around for decades and it has gone from a manga, to a television series, and even interactive video games. But where is Dragon Ball today? Dragon Ball is one of the oldest and most popular anime series in America and maybe even the world. Most anime get their run time as an anime and manga and then that’s the end of it. Dragon Ball has managed to survive the test of time because it has built such a huge online community through video games, forums, youtube channels, and other various online forms of media. Hundreds of thousands of fans have created online communities dedicated to Dragon Ball. This amount of enthusiasm for the series has caught the attention of the producers of the series; which has led to more content constantly being released. The world of Dragon Ball online has only just begun. The new video game that is coming out in early 2015 will allow you to free roam a virtual world with your own personalized character. Here you can interact with other players, challenge them, or even team up to play through the story. This is an entirely new concept for the Dragon Ball video games. They are going beyond just making a fighting game where you just fight against someone else and that’s it. Dimps has created an online world for fans to immerse themselves into. This will change the way gamers play Dragon Ball. Originally these games could only be played with more than one person if you had to people in one room at a time. Then it evolved to where you could connect with another person online and play. But now with XENOVERSE you can seamlessly integrate yourself with other players online in this new Dragon Ball “world.” Aside from this new video game community fans will receive in 2015, there are already thousands of other online communities relating to Dragon Ball. There is one community that started out as an MMORPG video game called Dragon Ball Online. This game came out only in a few Asian countries. This game was wildly popular among fans but after a short run the game was shut down and is now longer being played. However, fans have taken it into there on hands and they are recreating Dragon Ball Online. This is very interesting because a group of fans is rebuilding this game for people to play and enjoy. It just goes to show how strong the online Dragon Ball community is. In these communities there is a lot of diversity in the fans on these communities. There are people from all different countries, different ages, and genders. This online community is always changing and always evolving; they have also had a huge influence on the content that the producers release. These communities will hopefully be around for many years to come keeping Dragon Ball alive with it.
