Dragon Ball Z Kakarot: the DLC with Trunks marks the end of post-launch support

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot

In recent weeks, Bandai Namco Entertainment has officially presented Trunks The Warrior of Hope, the new DLC that will further enrich the Dragon Ball Z Kakarot content package.

The Japanese company has intervened again to clarify that the expansion dedicated to the warrior with purple hair will be the last additional content dedicated to the action-RPG. This means that the title will not receive additional Season Passes, as happened instead with other titles of the well-known franchise, such as Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

The news comes from a tweet published recently by Bandai Namco, in which it is specified without possible misunderstanding that Trunks The Warrior oh Hope is the latest DLC in the game:

"Get ready to explore a dark future in the final Dragon Ball Z Kakarot DLC. Gohan and Trunks will do whatever it will be in their power to defend the world from evil androids ".

We remind you that the new expansion of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during the summer season of this year. After being spotted online, the Switch version of the game was officially denied by Bandai Namco. In the meantime, to be able to get your hands on the final chapter of the action game, we refer you to our A New Power Awakens Part 2 DLC review.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot’ Switch “announcement” was a mistake

Bandai Namco have rejected suggestions that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming to Nintendo Switch, claiming the inclusion of the logo was a mistake.

A promotional video for Trunks: The Warrior of Hope, the latest and supposedly last Kakarot DLC, contained a brief image of the Switch logo alongside that of the Xbox, Playstation, and Steam.

Fans suggested this may have been a sign that Kakarot was finally coming to the Nintendo console, given that it runs on the same engine as Dragon Ball FighterZ which is already a Switch favourite.

The Kakarot advert was pulled quickly from Bandai Namco’s Latin American Instagram page where it was initially posted, but eagle-eyed fans had already taken screenshots.

A re-uploaded video showed content from Kakarot alongside cut-scene footage, letting fans know to expect the DLC’s release within the third quarter of 2021.

According to screenshots taken by one Twitter account, the Instagram page has addressed the video, saying it was a mistake to have included the Switch logo and that Kakarot would not be released on Switch.

Many comments on the Reddit r/NintendoSwitch thread have alluded to the “mistake” being the leaking of the information early, rather than the inclusion of the information itself.

Reddit user Ljink suggested the distinction that “as of now officially it’s not coming to Switch. That will probably change soon”.

In other DLC-related news, Bungie have confirmed that Destiny 2: Forsaken will be Vaulted when new content is released, despite the current storyline relying heavily on its narrative.
