“Battle of Z” (360/PS3/Vita) DLC Updates: Characters & Voices
Published by 29 March 2014, 4:02 PM EDT

The UK branch of Bandai Namco announced an impending update for the Vita version of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z last month which was set to include the Japanese voice cast as a new selectable option; previously, only the international console versions of the game (Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3) had this option available.

Europeans were finally treated to the update this week with the downloadable content launching as a free update 26 March 2014.


The update has not been announced for the North American version of the game and at last check-in the company responded to Kanzenshuu with a “hold tight”-esque answer.

On the flipside, the two characters previously only available as pre-order bonuses — Super Saiyan Bardock and Super Vegetto — have now been released as paid DLC in all regions. While available to outright purchase in Japan at ¥300 a pop, Bandai Namco had recently responded to Kanzenshuu that there were “no plans” to release the characters as paid DLC in this region. That plan seems to have changed, as both are now available for all three systems (Xbox 360 / PlayStation) at an equivalent $2.99 a pop.

The character DLC for North America, unlike with the Japanese versions, are not cross-buy for the PlayStation 3 and Vita, meaning that two separate purchases will be necessary to cover both versions of the game. The downloads are 100 KB each; the characters’ respective data are already a part of the game, and are actually part of the post-story battles to fight against (but not play as without the requisite pre-order code or now paid-access code).
