It has finally arrived: Trunks – The Warrior of Hope, the latest DLC for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, is available now for Xbox One! We spoke with Chief Producer Ryosuke Hara to discuss what players can expect from this latest drop.
AL: About how much game content can we expect with this DLC?
RH: As for the game volume, you can expect just the same length / content as the other playable bows in the main story (Saiyan Arc, Frieza Arc, etc.).
AL: Can you give us an overview of the story that covers this arc?
RH: In this new DLC, users will experience a new arc based on the story of a chapter / episode in addition to the manga / anime. This arc focuses on an alternate future, where Gohan and Trunks fight Android to find peace in 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 completely destroyed land, players will find ruins of landmarks such as Orange City and Capsule Corp., and other characters such as Master Roshi who have been driven out of their original homes.
I don’t want to ruin it for players who haven’t seen the anime, so I won’t go into much more into the story, but I assure you it will be a story you won’t forget.
AL: Are there any new villains that we need to be careful of?
RH: Nothing is safe since there are countless drones created by the Red Ribbon Army to guard any survivor. Being warned by these drones can lead to a fatality, since they launch an alert, automatically launching you into a death game against Android 17 and 18. Androids are much stronger compared to the ones you fought in the main story, and your only chance of survival is to find a way to escape by releasing specific conditions in battle.
AL: Many players are fans of the anime and already know the story. Can anime viewers expect something new?
RH: We’ll have surprises and new discoveries for all of you who have already seen the show, so I really hope you enjoy it all. New abilities will also be unlocked in the main story once you clear this DLC, so this may be your chance to play the main game or finish it if you haven’t already.
AL: If I don’t delete the main story, can I still play this DLC?
RH: The DLC is playable independently if you clear the main story, then don’t be afraid to skip it right away!
Thank you all for your support of this game so far and for waiting patiently for this final DLC. We’re excited to see fans, old and new, embark on this iconic historic arc. Now get out of here and save the future!
