“Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot” to Receive Second DLC Season Pass + Native PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S Versions in 2023
Published by 16 September 2022, 11:27 AM EDT

In conjunction with Tokyo Game Show this week, Bandai Namco has announced a slew of updates coming in 2023 to Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, the “Goku Experience Action/RPG” video game originally released in January 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (with a later release on the Nintendo Switch).

Updates are set to include:

  • A second season pass of paid downloadable content comprised of three releases, the first of which focusing on Bardock
  • Native PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S editions of the game featuring enhanced graphics and a framerate bump to 60fps

Gameplay at 60fps (as opposed to the original console versions at 30ps) is currently already available to players on PC.

The first entry in the second wave of DLC packs is entitled BARDOCK: たったひとりの最終決戦 (BARDOCK: Tatta Hitori no Saishū Kessen; “Bardock: A Final, Solitary Battle”), a direct pull from and clear nod to the title of the character’s original 1990 television special. The pack will be called Bardock: Alone Against Fate in the English localization.

Developed by CyberConnect2 for Bandai Namco, the action role-playing game released 16 January 2020 in Japan and 17 January 2020 internationally on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). A Nintendo Switch edition came later in September 2021. The initial wave of paid downloadable content across the game’s first season pass covered material from the 2013 film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, the 2015 film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, and the 1993 Trunks television special (with extra post-credits material), respectively.
