After a lengthy gap, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot‘s latest DLC episode finally launches this week. A New Power Awakens Part 2 will focus on the revival of Frieza, with the iconic villain now able to transform into a vastly more powerful Golden form. Goku and Vegeta will battle back with a new transformation of their own, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, or Super Saiyan Blue for short.
According to lead producer Ryosuke Hara, the ultimate battle with Golden Frieza is based on the setting from the Resurrection of F movie but the DLC has its own original story to match the setting and outcomes of the base game. For example, you’ll be able to fight the Ginyu Force once again if you resurrected them with the Dragon Balls during the main campaign.
Another big feature is the introduction of Horde Battle, which pits players against Frieza’s entire army. Hara explained that the battle system for this mode had been tweaked, with several adjustments to the enemy AI, SFX, skills, and more being added so that the experience will be both challenging and fun.
