Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 hit the Nintendo Switch in Japan earlier this month followed by an expanded international release yesterday. Similar to the Japanese release, the international edition makes available various paid downloadable content in addition to free content during its launch window.

The “All Main Story Characters – Early Unlock” item is available for free through 31 October 2017 and provides access to all non-paid playable characters in the game (these characters can otherwise also be unlocked through normal gameplay); this download is a negligible 1 MB unlock file.

This DLC is used to immediately unlock all playable characters from the game’s main story.

*Unlockable characters can also be unlocked by progressing through the game.
*This does not include characters who are only available as part of paid DLC.
*You may first need to update to the latest version.

*Available until October 31, 2017.

The “Legend Patrol Pack” is also available for free through 31 October 2017 and contains story mode content from the first Dragon Ball XENOVERSE game; this pack requires 2 GB of storage space.

This pack lets you personally experience the main Time Patrol story from DRAGON BALL Xenoverse.
This giant-sized pack also contains content from “Resurrection ‘F’ Arc” and “GT Arc”.

*You may first need to update to the latest version.

*Available until October 31, 2017.

All four of the game’s previous paid downloadable content packs are available for $9.99 each (“DRAGON BALL Super” Packs 1-4), while a “DLC Bundle” serves as the game’s season pass and collects all four packs together for $29.99.

European players can register for the free character unlock code via Bandai Namco’s website.

The Japanese version of the game on the Nintendo Switch eShop is currently 10% off (down to ¥6,609 from the standard ¥7,344). All of the same downloadable content packs are available (with the exception of the fourth pack not coming until 28 September 2017), plus the Japanese-exclusive “Anison & BGM Pack” for ¥1,500.

More content in the form of paid playable characters and additional free updates are set for release across all platforms this winter; these updates will not be included in the cost of the existing season pass / DLC bundle.

Developed by Dimps for Bandai Namco, Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 is available worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (via Steam), and Switch. 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.
