“XENOVERSE” Japanese Bonus DLC Available Until May 6
Published by 10 February 2015, 8:03 AM EST

Dragon Ball XENOVERSE is officially available in Japan with the first run of the game coming packed with a “Patrol Perks” downloadable content set including Jaco as a playable character and a Kame-Sen’nin character customization set.


These digital items come packed with a redemption code alongside physical copies, but are also available to those purchasing the game digitally in Japan. The PlayStation Store listing notes that these first run items will only be available until 06 May 2015:


If you purchase by 06 May 2015, you can obtain the “Jaco / Kame-Sen’nin Set” DLC.

Internationally, Jaco will come within the third pack of downloadable content (priced at $9.99), which itself can be obtained at a slightly reduced price as a part of the “season pass” for $24.99.

Dragon Ball XENOVERSE — developed by Dimps for Bandai Namco — will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game was released last week (05 February 2015) in Japan, while other territories have shifted slightly (North America to 24 February 2015, and Europe to 27 February 2015, the lattermost of which will also act as the global PC release date).

    This might be a foolish question, but do the international versions of the DLC have an expiration date as well? Is that normally how these things are done? I’m a tad behind with how Sony does things, though I suppose if there was an expiration date, you’d have mentioned it.

    I don’t even have a Playstation *3* yet, so I hope the American DLC isn’t set to expire anytime soon.

      Usually DLC packs stay up until some kind of legal issue forces their removal. See every Marvel game ever made that has DLC.

    • VegettoEX says:

      Yeah, Lance pretty much nailed it. I don’t expect the DBZ DLC to go away, because it’s all internally owned.

      It’s important to note that this “expiration” is only in Japan, and only for the equivalent of the first-run/pressing bonus DLC. It remains to be seen if they’ll offer it up separately later.

      One interesting tidbit is that the Patrol Perks DLC code activated both the PS4 and PS3 versions for me. Of course, the “Battle of Z” DLC also activated both the PS3 and Vita versions… but only in Japan. I had to buy them separately for PS3 and Vita for the North American release. I’ll be curious to see how the DLC packs are handled for “Xenoverse” going forward internationally, and if they’re system-separate like the did with “Battle of Z”…

      General weirdness all around, but eh. The digital age is here!
