Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Adds New Characters, New Game Mode This Fall
With all the hype surrounding Dragon Ball FighterZ, it’s easy to forget that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is still alive and has been pumping out a steady stream of content for the past few months now. In fact, yet another set of DLC is set to arrive this fall, and it features two new characters and an entirely new game mode.
In an announcement, Bandai Namco confirmed that Tapion and Android 13 will be joining the roster. These two aren’t particularly well-known characters, as they aren’t featured in the manga or anime. Rather, they’re characters from two separate DBZ films that have been released over the years, with Android 13 hailing from Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13 and Tapion coming from Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon. Both will be paid DLC, but their price wasn’t detailed in the announcement.
On top of the new DLC characters, Xenoverse 2 will also get a new “Hero Colosseum” mode that will tell a new story and play like a strategic board game featuring mysterious handheld figurines. Unlike Tapion and Android 13, however, “Hero Colosseum” mode will be free.
Here’s the overview, courtesy of Bandai Namco:
Tapion and Android 13 will join the battle in the new upcoming paid content. Tapion swiftly attacks opponents with his sword and supports your allies by creating a barrier with the Flute of the Brave. Android 13 has a powerful weapon as he is able to read your enemies’ data to track and attack them from a long range. Fans will also be delighted to know that new costumes will be added in this new paid content. They will be able to dress their fighter with Toppo and Ribrianne costumes from the “Universe Survival Saga”.
An all new mode will appear in Conton City with the next free update also coming this Autumn. Hero Colosseum will offer a new story and let players play a strategic board game with mysterious hand-held figurines. Stay tuned for more details!
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
