It's a game, read  DevisousRobert's third post, he explains why it's possible. Even if things don't make sense, realize that this game is more or less stand alone playing on the original source material. You got to take it with a grain of salt.

@Burntlettuce: Ok, your right. Then all I would say is even as a fan of DBZ i will not play this game as i do not think a WOW format fits DBZ, maybe an online adventure searching for the dragonballs like kid goku did might fit the format better, but this game is not my cup of tea.

I'll play it. Also you forget that the Dragon's abilities are not likened to Kami's. After all, Kami is stronger than King Piccolo, but Kami can't raise the dead. The Dragon's mystical powers exceed the abilities of its creator. It's why it can do things like grant immortality, create the most comfortable undies in the universe, bring back a planet full of dead people, etc etc. Awakening and/or giving the Saiyan gene to an individual would not exactly be difficult next to the other things the Dragon has accomplished.
 
Also, DBO is directly created by Toriyama himself and is the only canon continuatiion of his series. GT is completely cut off and ignored. Toriyama has been working on DBO since its conception. To claim you're a fan, but refuse to play possibly the most epic of DBZ games just because it's not a straight up fighter like the rest, would just be completely shameful. If/when DBO is ever released in the US, I'll get it the moment I'm able. It's not at all like WoW.

This game maybe ridiculously canon breaking but that's not the point. DBZ mmo just sounds fun. My inner child head is exploding at the idea the only thing better would be an actual Pokemon MMO from Game Freak. I would play this right now but that would probably involve some sort of identity thief. I swear identity thief in Korea must be super easy since apparently you can ask for a social security number for anything. Maybe I should contact my Korean friend from high school and ask him to set me up an account.

@ReiKai: Yes as you have pointed out Im a complete embarrassment to all DBZ fans, and Toriyama Sensei should come to my house and personally nyiobo me in the head.  
 
Shenlong cannot affect those stronger than it, he says so himself. Shenlong cannot make anyone turn ssj. 
 
A video game cannot be canon to the series, you know thats just silly, AT worked on Neko Majin and Toccio the angel doesn't make them more canon than GT. But as long as theres no mustache clad Vegta in it im willing to give it a chance, could be good I guess but i really hate WOW style games, or maybe just WOW in particular idk.

@ReiKai: Agreed man, I really hope it does make it to the US because personally I'm tired of the fighters we keep getting, this will be a good break and looks really good, thanks for the clips.

 Shenlong cannot affect those stronger than it, he says so himself. Shenlong cannot make anyone turn ssj.

No, he said he can't kill people. And again I've given explanations that would allow SSJ. Besides this is all Toryama's direct work, so arguing about it is rather meaningless. The videos themselves prove SSJ still exist.
 

 A video game cannot be canon to the series

Yes, it can. Especially when creator of both says so. All the other DBZ games are non-canon. DBO is the only canon continuation of Toriyama's work. He says so himself. WoW went through 3 games and became something new and every part of it is canon, including the novelizations, comics and manga series produced by Blizzard are all canon to the game. DBO is canon to DB/Z Manga.

np. The fighters are fine...well a few of them were. Most of the DBZ games were suck remakes of the same thing. Budokai 1 started ok. BD2 was suck. BD3 was great. Then Tenkaichi 1 sucked, Ten2 sucked less, Ten3 was ok. Finally Burst Limit and Raging Blast come which made things better, but no real changes in story or anything aside from some what if's and SS3 Brolly. Nothing about them changed. It's just the same re-hashed stories over and over again. With DBO, we have an entirely new story which still connects to past events with Time Travel quests. This next trailer was translated to explain the story of DBO.

gameplay and story segregation, if we held true to the super saiyan, there would be exactly one or two super saiyan
 @Kurohige: no of course it won't........ it would be what john said

@ReiKai: Don't be silly an mmo cannot be canon, characters that are custom and playable cannot be a canon continuation of set manga/anime characters, show me where Torriyama says its a canon continuation. And i don't doubt wow is canon to whatever it is you were saying it was canon to i just don like wow in general.

The Games story is canon. Check everywhere. Every site about DBO says the same thing. The Story, art, everything is done by Toriyama. Making your own characters is the Gaming aspect. The Story you follow is what's Canon. The same is true for WoW. All the chars you make may not be part of the Story, but the quests and things within WoW are part of the Lore Canon. Anyone play WoW remember the Wanted quest in Silithus? The one for Deathclasp? That's in the Manga. 
 
The Mechanics of the game aren't what's used, it's the games Story that's canon. And needless to say, the people that appear in the Cinematics are part of the story.

@ReiKai: 
show me a troiyama interview where he says its canon.
 
did toei (rightholders to dbz) make this game?
 
Toriyama worked on neko majin and stupid one piece cross overs doesn't mean they are canon. 
 
I really don't care whats canon in wow
 
Best dbz games are BT3, Segas, Legacy of Goku 2, Buu's fury

Toei doesn't need to. Toriyama is the Designer and Supervisor. Go. Read ->

You want more? Go here and ask around. They'll tell you the same thing ->  http://dbmmo.com/

Toriyama designs many things, neko majin even has goku and vegeta in it. Just because he designs things doesn't make it canon. I know where your goin with this your going to say this game overrides GT, now GT may have sucked compared to Z, but being realistic a video game cannot be a canon continuation of a series, replacing an already made official series. The game is an alternate or imagined future, the same as all dbz games.
