Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot DLC “A New Power Awakens – Part 1” Launches April 28 Through Season Pass

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Bandai Namco Entertainment have revealed the release date for the A New Power Awakens – Part 1 DLC for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

As detailed on the Bandai Namco website and our prior coverage, the DLC sees Dragon Ball Super‘s Beerus- the God of Destruction- appearing far earlier in the Dragon Ball timeline. Players can unlock Super Saiyan God transformations for Goku and Vegeta, for use throughout the main story.

Beerus is at level 250, and while Goku and Vegeta will fight alongside one another, players cannot use items in the battle against him. Producer Hara Ryousuke states “Beerus is so strong, my clear rate for this battle is 1 out of 10!”

The A New Power Awakens – Part 1 DLC launches April 28th through the season pass, and alongside the A New Power Awakens – Part 2 DLC in 2020.
