Although many Dragon Ball fans were thinking that the Dragon Ball Z Kakarot role-playing game won’t be featuring any elements from the Dragon Ball Super anime, it turns out that they’re so wrong. After Goku and Vegeta received godly powers to confront The God of Destruction Beerus, Earth’s greatest heroes will receive even higher power levels in an upcoming DLC.
Goku and Vegeta will have to do their best into taking down Frieza, as he was revived from the dead by his henchmen. The former intergalactic tyrant seems more eager than ever to destroy the Earth, and of course: to take revenge on the Super Saiyan who hurt both his body and pride. But Goku and Vegeta will also need some reinforcements for this mission, as Frieza himself is bringing entire hordes of soldiers with him. These new screenshots speak for themselves:

There’s no exact release date announced, but we can hope for the DLC to arrive within the next two or three months. The scenario of the expansion follows exactly the story presented in the Dragon Ball Super anime, when Frieza came back from the dead furious and eager to defeat Goku.
Special training for achieving the Super Saiyan Blue transformation?
Considering that on the previous DLC, Goku and Vegeta had to train with Whis in order to gain Super Saiyan God powers, we can expect something similar in the upcoming DLC. The Super Saiyan Blue transformation is vastly superior to the Super Saiyan God form, which means that just like in the anime, our heroes have to endure some pretty harsh conditions if they want to ascend.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. This obviously means that the next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will also be supporting the game.
