    They're apparently going to be making a lot of changes to the game due to customer feedback. So we'll see. Here's most of the information compiled for the game so far:

    I have played this significantly. If you have questions feel free to ask.

    There is a character creator with female options for humans, saiyans and maijins. Each has universal and race specific costumes, some can be color changed. A lot of clothing is same as the stuff from the show and Xenoverse 1 frankly. Not as exciting as it seems.

    When taken enough damage your character will have scuffs then bruises and eventually some blood splatters, not much beyond that I found (usually don't live long enough for it, maybe with healing item use).
    Each race has a different throw attack. I believe gender also changes throws, maybe humans/saiyans have same throws but split on gender not too sure.
    There are some melee "super" attacks which lock onto enemies for a bit when they get hit. Sometimes it zooms in such as the Super God Fist which is a pretty mean punch in the face. Same for Ultimate type attacks.
    Default fighting combos are pretty decent and changes based on race. Some combos with hard finishers that knockback, guard breaks and light/heavy attacks. Each attack feels nice and heavy with stronger feedback when the enemy has their guard broken.
    There is a grab super that drains the enemy's ki and stamina before hitting them away.
    I will say this, the game doesn't favor melee super/ultra attacks. It is difficult to get a full combo or good damage on them when the ai and other players can recover midway easily if they have the ki, this means you need to melee fight until you get an opportunity to guard crush them then go to town while they cannot dodge for a while. Quite annoying.

    Female characters I've unlocked so far
    Videl / Saiyaman 2
    Android 18
    Pan
    Towa

    I've seen some mods that have more characters such as Kiao of Time & Bulma in character selection screen. Not sure on state of it. Basic nude mods for avatars are available for humans and saiyans.

    There are a lot of pre-made AI "Time Patrollers" you can use for single player stuff. If you are online you will see a lot of other player's characters you can hire as well.

    Writing that last post made me play the game some more and I took a few vids in training mode. They ended up being way too large for my pitiful upload so I took short gifs from the video instead.

    Zip has all gifs. Folder has individual gifs.
    If you view the gif named beating and it doesn't finish with a face punch (also featured in separate gif) then it didn't finish loading. I notice this when trying to view the gif in Internet Explorer. Try a different program, Media Player Classic worked for me as did Fire Fox.

    I got some gifs to share as well, mostly just of my OC getting thrashed:

    Content-wise it's pretty much identical to the first game with some new techniques thrown in. Ryona-wise, it's still a great game with lots of opportunity.

    I still need to unlock that costume. :(

    Edit. I also quite like the massive over head on your second gif. When fighting on land it pummels you into the ground and creates a small crater. :D

    I reckon it'll be pretty cool if some one skilled at writing did some fan fiction and added little bits of gifs like the ones we did to it. Shame I can't write.
