Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden received its first patch in Japan yesterday. Version 1.1.0 updates the game to include four new Z-Assist characters: Son Goku (Farmer), Vegeta (Bingo), Mira, and Towa.
Son Goku riding his tractor is a nod to the first episode of the new Dragon Ball Super TV series; Vegeta performing bingo is a nod to his performance in the 2013 film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods; Mira and Towa, originally developed for Dragon Ball Online, also make their way over from recent appearances in Dragon Ball XENOVERSE and Dragon Ball Heroes.
Kuririn (Policeman), the character’s special Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” outfit, is also available to unlock as a Z-Assist character via a button-press code on the title screen: X Y → → ← ← ↓ ↑ ↓ ↑
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden launched in Japan 11 June 2015. First-press copies of the game come packed with bonus content, including a downloadable version of the Super Famicom game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 2 (previously included as a part of the J-Legend Retsuden compilation game; albeit now with replacement music). Arc System Works developed the game for Bandai Namco. The developer previously worked on the Bukū… / Supersonic Warriors games on the Nintendo GameBoy Advance and DS.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden is currently available for order from CDJapan. The Nintendo 3DS / New Nintendo 3DS are region-locked; a Japanese system is required for the game to play. The game will be available in Europe 16 October 2015, in North and Latin America 20 October 2015, and in Brazil 23 October 2015. A free demo is now available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
We have reached out to Bandai Namco for information on whether or not this patch will be made available for the international release either by its release date or in the future.
