Bandai Namco has released a new blog post via PlayStation with an overview of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot – New Power Awakens: Part 2 DLC! The DLC releases tomorrow and adds new content like Horde battle for fans to enjoy. The final DLC for the game is still in development and arrives in 2021. Here are more details:
Hello everyone! I am Ryosuke Hara, lead producer of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Thank you for your support of this game so far. We have new and exciting content coming soon, so I would like to take this opportunity to give an overview of the upcoming second DLC: A New Power Awakens – Part 2.
We had quite a large gap between the first and second DLC, so I really appreciate everyone’s patience. In A New Power Awakens – Part 2, you will be protecting the Earth from the invasion of Golden Frieza and the Frieza Army. And in order to do so, Goku and Vegeta will have to train further and awaken their next level of power: the SSGSS transformation. Please keep in mind that while this boss battle episode is built upon the setting from the movie, it actually has its own original story to match the setting and outcomes of the base game. For example, because it was possible to bring the Ginyu Force back to life in the base game, you will have to take them on in the DLC as well.
One interesting feature we would like all of you to enjoy is the Horde Battle. In the Horde Battle, you will be fighting against a massive number of enemies, and this was developed to reproduce the desperate battle against the Frieza Army, like what people saw in the movies.
As you can imagine, just taking the battle system from the base game and adding a bunch of enemies would not work… and would not be much fun to play. So we’ve made several adjustments to the enemy AI, SFX, skills etc., in order to create a battle true to the original works, while making it enjoyable gameplay-wise.
One example is the Z Combination. When launching this skill in the Horde Battle, you will be able to wipe out numerous enemies at once. And the number of enemies you’re able to take out depends on the amount of combos you’ve been able to connect before launching the Z Combination. So combos will mean a lot more compared to what they do in regular battles.
Goku and Vegeta will also be acquiring new abilities that will help you take the upper hand of the Horde Battle, so don’t forget to check that out as well.
The next and final DLC, which features a brand new story arc, is still undergoing development and we are really hard at work to make it an exciting and fun content to play. I really look forward to announcing more info in 2021. So in the meantime, please enjoy A New Power Awakens – Part 2 and prepare for the next challenge!
