It’s official. Dragon Ball Super: Broly makes its mark on Dragon Ball Xenoverse this winter. The highly anticipated anime film drops in a month. So it only makes sense that one of the most popular Dragon Ball video games gets an expansion to help promote it. Shueisha’s V Jump magazine revealed that a fourth DLC Extra Pack was on the way to the game. And this pack features none other than the Legendary Super Saiyan, himself, as he appears in the upcoming film. Broly is already in the game, of course, but in his original incarnation. The new movie features a redesign and a supposedly radically different backstory, created by Akira Toriyama, himself. The new Broly is also canon. So interactions in the game between the two could be interesting, to say the least.
Broly isn’t the only thing coming to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 with this, however. No details actually exist about the new DLC pack. However, it’s highly likely that it includes new moves and possibly new Parallel Quests. Meanwhile, a free expansion, due out at the same time, promises more new aesthetics. These include a Broly wig accessory and a Santa costume set. However, the biggest part of this free update is a new arena, based on the arena in the Tournament of Power arc of Dragon Ball Super. It only makes sense that this new stage is added. Four key characters from that arc already exist in the game – Android 17 (Super), Kefla, Jiren, and Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku. The new stage appears to represent the latter stages of the tournament, where much of it was destroyed by the fighting. Though it has the potential to still be a rather large map.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly charges into theaters in Japan, December 14. However, the English Dub debuts in America on January 16.
