It’s finally here: Trunks – The Warrior of Hope, the last DLC for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, is available now for Xbox One! We spoke with Lead Producer Ryosuke Hara to discuss what players can expect from this latest drop.
AL: About how much gameplay content can we expect with this DLC?
RH: Regarding gameplay volume, you can expect just about the same length/content as the other arcs playable in the main story (Saiyan Arc, Frieza Arc, etc.).
AL: Can you give us a sneak peek of the story this arc covers?
RH: In this new DLC, users will be experiencing a new arc based on the story of an extra chapter/episode of the manga/anime. This arc sets focus on an alternative future, where Gohan and Trunks fight the Androids to regain peace to a desperate world without Goku or any of the other Z Warriors.
The world is no longer what it used to be. As you travel through the utterly destroyed land, players will find ruins of iconic landmarks such as Orange City and Capsule Corp., and other characters such as Master Roshi who have been chased out of their original homes.
I don’t want to spoil it for players who haven’t watched the anime, so I won’t go much further into the story, but I assure you that this will be a story you won’t forget.
AL: Are there any new villains we should be on the lookout for?
RH: Nowhere is safe as there are countless drones created by the Red Ribbon Army on the lookout for any survivors. Being spotted by these drones can lead to a fatality, as they will set off an alert, automatically thowing you in a death match against Android 17 and 18. The androids are much stronger compared to the ones you’ve fought in the main story, and your only chance of survival is to find a way to escape by clearing specific conditions in battle.
AL: Many players are fans of the anime and are already familiar with the story. Can anime viewers expect anything new?
RH: We will have surprises and new discoveries for all of you who have already seen the show, so I really hope you’ll all enjoy that. New skills will also be unlocked in the main story once you clear this DLC, so this may be your chance to replay the main game or finish it if you haven’t already.
AL: If I haven’t cleared the main story yet, can I still play this DLC?
RH: The DLC is playable regardless of whether you’ve cleared the main story, so don’t be afraid to jump right in!
Thank you all for your support for this game so far and for waiting patiently for this final DLC. We’re excited to see fans, both old and new, embark on this iconic story arc. Now get out there and save the future!
