Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, released last January, is the latest video game retelling of the life of Son Goku…strange visitor from another planet disguised as nobody in particular, who stands for truth, justice, and achieving a power level even higher than he did the last time you saw him.
The main game in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot tells the story of the manga and anime up to the Buu saga, but doesn’t go into anything that happens in the canon movies or Super. That’s the job of the DLC content…something had to be saved for the Season Pass, after all. Those who hold the Pass will be able to enjoy the two-part storyline “A NEW POWER AWAKENS – Part 1,” in which Lord Beerus visits Earth.
Goku is the only one who can stop Beerus from casually annihiliating the entire planet with the snap of his fingers, but only if he can power up into a form so strong it’s never before been seen…that of a Super Saiyan God.
Beerus is not going to be easy at all…he’ll arrive at level 250 and you won’t be able to use your full range of items against him. Hara Ryousuke, producer of the game, confesses that “Beerus is so strong, my clear rate for this battle is 1 out of 10!”
Perform well and you’ll be able to unlock the Super Saiyan God transformations for both Goku and Vegeta, to use throughout the main story. (Wouldn’t that make everything ridiculously easy?)
“A NEW POWER AWAKENS – Part 1″ will be released tomorrow, April 28, in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. Part 2 of this storyline will be added later in the year.
