At the end of the company’s recent preview video for Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2‘s upcoming first paid downloadable content pack, the Japanese branch of Bandai Namco teased a forthcoming “Anison & BGM Pack” for the game allowing players to select additional new music:

The pack — whose contents, price, and date are still yet to be determined — is advertised as containing at least seven vocal theme songs including:

  • 魔訶不思議アドベンチャー! (“Mystical Adventure!”); the opening theme to the Dragon Ball TV series
  • ロマンティックあげるよ (“I’ll Give You Romance”); the ending theme to the Dragon Ball TV series
  • CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA; the first opening theme to the Dragon Ball Z TV series
  • WE GOTTA POWER; the second opening theme to the Dragon Ball Z TV series
  • でてこいとびきりZENKAIパワー! (“Come Out, Incredible ZENKAI Power!”); the first ending theme to the Dragon Ball Z TV series
  • 僕達は天使だった (“We Were Angels”); the second ending theme to the Dragon Ball Z TV series
  • DAN DAN 心魅かれてく (“Bit by Bit, You’re Charming My Heart”); the opening theme to the Dragon Ball GT TV series

… and at least four background music tracks, specifically naming the following tracks from the original musical score to Dragon Ball Z:

  • プロローグ&サブタイトル (“Prologue & Subtitle”); episode recap and title card music
  • ニューヒーロー登場 (“A New Hero is Born”)
  • ソリッドステート・スカウター (“Solid State Scouter”); the Bardock TV special insert song
  • 恐怖のギニュー特戦隊 (“The Fearsome Ginyu Special Force”)

Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 is available worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In North America, the game launched for consoles 25 October 2016 with a PC release following 28 October 2016. In Europe, the game launched across all platforms 28 October 2016. In Japan, the game exclusively launched on the PlayStation 4 console 02 November 2016.

The Sparking! series of games on the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii featured new orchestrations of similar original franchise music, while the international editions of the games (under the “Budokai Tenkaichi” name) used a combination of recycled and original replacement music. A similar situation happened with the Blast series of games on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
