“Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot” PlayStation 5 + Xbox Series X|S Editions and New Bardock DLC Release Dates Set in January 2023

The previously announced PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S editions of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot are set for a 12 January 2023 launch in Japan and 13 January 2023 international launch. The likewise previously announced first entry in a second “season pass” of downloadable content will launch alongside the new editions on all available platforms (including the original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, as well as the Nintendo Switch port) the same day.

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.

The English edition of the latest trailer specifies that the upcoming three entries in the second “season pass” are all “story arcs” rather than “story episodes”; in the first season pass, the Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’ DLC entries were much shorter with a focus on boss fights and level increases, while the third entry — that of Trunks’ future timeline — told a comprehensive, multi-part story.

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.
