Bandai Namco announced earlier today that the first DLC for the popular video game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, called New Power Awakens - Part 1, will release on April 28th. The DLC is set to feature a game-exclusive original story where Goku and Vegeta train to become Super Saiyan Gods in order to defeat Beerus, the God of Destruction -- and several newly released screenshots show them doing just that.
According to Bandai Namco, the new DLC can be accessed at any point during the game, but don't expect it to be an easy fight, especially if taken lightly. "Train with Whis to awaken SSG and challenge Beerus The Destroyer!" Bandai Namco stated on social media. "Experienced players can battle him at level 250!" It's unclear what all will be included beyond "train Goku and Vegeta" and "fight Beerus," but honestly? For fans of the manga and anime, that might actually be enough.
