Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Announces Trunks Saga DLC (VIDEO)
Following the release of two DLCs thus far, an all-new story expansion is now on the way for Bandai Namco’s RPG-adjacent Goku chronicle, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Announced in a cinematic anime-style trailer, the new content titled ‘Trunks: The Warrior of Hope’ is set to follow the series blue-haired, sword-carrying Saiyan in a departure from the game’s titular central protagonist Goku. Awarded the release window of “Summer 2021,” this new content will mark the third and final story content for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
As evidenced in the footage above, the new story content appears to be following one of Dragon Ball’s most famous alternate timelines which see Goku succumb to a heart virus and leaves the Earth to fall against the malicious might of Androids 17 and 18. Events from this classic DB story follow Trunks as he acts as the planet’s struggling protector and forges the means to travel back in time to prevent this post-apocalyptic timeline from happening. Yes, it’s essentially the same plot as Terminator, but that fact is hardly lost on anyone at this point.
Fans familiar with the series are very well-versed with this premise, as the manga and anime have visited this setting on several occasions, with it even playing a major role in Dragon Ball Z as well as DB Super. Seeing its return in an expanded RPG format is likely to go over well with enthusiasts as Trunks remains as popular as ever and this adventure marks a new way to explore this timeline even further than before. It’s currently unknown exactly how far Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot plans to go with this DLC, but more information is likely to be relayed in the near future.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility.
