Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is getting its first major DLC, and it’ll focus on characters from the more contemporary Dragon Ball Super series.
In a new blog post, Bandai Namco announced the “A New Power Awakens” DLC, which will bring Dragon Ball Super characters like Beerus, the immortal god of destruction of Universe 6, where Dragon Ball is set. It’ll also add Whis, Beerus’ teacher and attendant.

Players will be able to access Goku’s Super Saiyan God transformation level (the one with the reddish hue, not Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, obviously) by training against Whis and eventually facing off against Beerus in one of the game’s boss battle episodes.
Bandai says this new content will be accessible “anytime during the player’s game experience,” and Goku will be able to transform into his Super Saiyan God mode any time during the main storyline.
The new DLC will be available through Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot’s season pass in Spring 2020, or you can buy it when the second DLC, appropriately titled “A New Power Awakens Part 2,” when that releases later this year.
If you bought the Ultimate Edition of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, you’ll also get a new music pack that includes a bunch of recognizable Dragon Ball series songs.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot managed to top the video game sales charts during the relatively quiet month of January this year, bringing in the third-highest first month sales total for a DBZ game, after FighterZ and Budokai. If that isn’t interesting enough, here’s the absolute weirdest Dragon Ball games you’ve probably never played.
