Dragon Ball Xenoverse is less than a week away from its February 24th release in North/Latin America and February 27th release in Europe/the Middle East/Australasia. Bandai Namco has already announced some of the DLC we are getting, but how about some videos for it! First, lets list out
First off is Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta and two Frieza soldier costumes. These three DLC will be free, Day 1 Edition bonuses. Typically, if you pre-order Dragon Ball Xenoverse, you should get the Day 1 edition, although in some instances that may not be the case. We urge you to check with your local retailer for information on if they will carry the Day 1 Edition. The resourceful AnimeGamesOnline was able to capture footage of the day 1 edition from the Japanese version of the game. In case you are curious, in Japan the DLC is distributed differently.
Next up are Pan, GT Goku, and GT Trunks. We show you three screenshots of these characters first because they haven’t been released yet anywhere in the world, they are scheduled for a March 2015 release worldwide. Despite that, the genius known as SergioM3 has peeked into the hidden data of the PS3 version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse to bring you some of their costumes and skills. Not only that, but it seems as if Eis Shenron and Nuova Shenron will be in as DLC as well! Based on the hidden data, we predict Eis Shenron and Nuova Shenron will be part of DLC pack 2, which currently does not have a date announced.
Pan’s skills are shown on Kid Gohan, GT Goku’s skills are shown using Goten, GT Trunks skills are shown on Future Trunks, and Eis Shenron and Nuova Shenron’s skills are shown using Omega Shenron. Again, the reason different characters were used for skills is because the DLC hasn’t been released yet and the proper character models are not available. It’s also worth highlighting, for GT Goku, SergioM3 mentions the original Dragon Ball costume kid Goku wore will be in, which is why we believe the Power Pole is part of GT Goku’s moveset. Additionally, SergioM3 believes GT Trunks might be an alternate costume for Future Trunks, however, Bandai Namco has not yet confirmed that.
Last, but not least are two videos of DLC that will be included in pack 3, which currently does not have a date announced. First off is playable character Jaco the Space Patroller and second is Master Roshi or the “Turtle Hermit’s”equipment, which will consist of sunglasses/turtle shell/beard as a combined accessory, the aloha shirt for the upper body, and white shorts for the lower body.
Here is a summary of the DLC and the information we know about them, along with screenshots from DLC Pack 1 not already shown above. The paid DLC packs will be available individually for $9.99 USD or $25.99 as a pack of three in the United States. Check your country’s online retailers, the PlayStation Network, or Xbox Marketplace for prices in other regions.
