During the Dragon Ball Battle Hour eSport event there was also space for the expected and rumored announcement of the new Dragon Ball Z Kakarot DLC. Bandai Namco did not disappoint expectations by unveiling Trunks: The Warrior of Hope, a new narrative arc focused on Trunks from the future.

We already talked about a DLC focused on the beloved purple-haired character in May of last year year, when the dataminers found the first clues about it. The presentation trailer leaves no doubt about the themes of the new story, since it opens with the death of Goku caused by the heart virus and continues with the devastating attack operated by cyborgs C-17 and C-18, against which the defenders of the Earth could not do anything. The first to fall was Piccolo, followed by Vegeta, Yamcha, Tien and Krilin. The story of the DLC begins 13 years after these events: the trailer of the announcement, which you can view at the opening of the news, closes by showing Trunks and Gohan from the future, the only survivors of the attack. In the alternate reality imagined by the authors of Dragon Ball Z it was Gohan who trained Vegeta's son, who then returned to the past thanks to a time machine built by Bulma.

To experience one of the most loved narrative arcs of fans in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot will have to wait a few months: the release of the DLC Trunks: The Warrior of Hope is in fact scheduled in the first part of the summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The new story arc will complete the Season Pass, which in recent months has already made available the episodes A New Power Awakens 1 & 2. Before then, on March 9 to be exact, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot will receive a free update which will expand the Dragon Ball Card Warriors card set.
