This year's 19th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Bandai Namco Entertainment's Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot game is getting an "additional episode" DLC that will feature the characters Beerus and Whis. In the story, after beating Whis, Goku and Vegeta will be able to use their Super Saiyan God forms. In those forms, the characters will then fight Beerus. The DLC will launch this spring as part the game's season pass.

Bandai Namco Entertainment had revealed on March 21 that the DLC is titled "A New Power Awakens Part 1" and will be followed by a "Part 2" later this year.

The game launched on January 16 in Japan, and on January 17 in the West. The game is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game:

Developed in Japan by video game developer CyberConnect2; the game tells the legendary story of DRAGON BALL Z, taking players on an unforgettable adventure to experience over-the-top battles and challenging quests while creating life-long friendships as they crusade to protect Earth from fearsome villains. Additionally, DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT will also present resolutions to long unanswered questions from the DRAGON BALL Z storyline through light-hearted side quests.

The game includes story and gameplay inspired by the Dragon Ball Z anime's Cell Saga and Buu Saga. The game also includes the playable characters Trunks and Bonyu, a new character designed by Akira Toriyama.

The game has English and Japanese audio and supports Neutral-Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles.
