All three of the Space/Time Vortex Quest missions are available immediately (albeit with seemingly-incorrect end dates in January 2017). Likewise, the seven new playable characters are also immediately available in the player’s roster of allies.

Matching Viz’s release of the Dragon Ball Super manga, and in opposition to the official simulcast stream translations, Bandai Namco has opted for a name spelling of “Zamas” (dropping the trailing “-u”).

The update does not change the visual appearance of certain weapons which were changed from their original sword design in the Japanese version of the game.

The European version of the game — set for launch next week on 17 February 2017will receive a free “Day One Patch” also bringing the game up-to-date with its international peers.

Dragon Ball Fusions, developed by Ganbarion for Bandai Namco, is the latest Dragon Ball franchise portable video game and is exclusively available on the Nintendo 3DS. The game has sold upward of 170,000 copies thus far in Japan and has received three free updates. The game was released in America 22 November 2016 and is set for a release in Europe 17 February 2017.
