Dragonball Z: Battle of Z to Get Super Vegeta and Super Saiyan Bardock DLCs


Bardock-Super-Saiyan

We’re only a few days away from the release of the latest 3D fighter based on Akira Toriyama’s iconic manga/anime franchise, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. And while we’ve already marked the game as a day 1 purchase, NAMCO BANDAI has decided to tease us further by planning a couple of DLC characters: Super Vegeta and Super Saiyan Bardock.

Everybody who’s a fan of the series and has watched all the way to the end of the Cell Saga already knows Super Vegeta – it’s Vegeta’s transformation after the first stage of Super Saiyan. It’s basically his less refined version of Super Saiyan 2 (it gives him a large boost but slows him down and makes his body bulkier, though not on the same disastrous level as Trunks’ Ultimate Super Saiyan form.)

Super Saiyan Bardock, on the other hand, is a fairly new addition to the franchise. Bardock himself has been introduced before in one of the old movie specials as Goku’s biological father. The movie set Bardock’s fate as having been killed by Freeza during the end of Planet Vegeta. But it was only recently – during a special manga – that his real fate was revealed: he was sent back in time and managed to learn to transform into a Super Saiyan while fighting Freeza’s ancestor, Chilled, thereby fueling the stories of a Super Saiyan along with Freeza’s fear of the golden haired warrior.

The Super Vegito (ki blast type) and Super Saiyan Bardock (fighting type) downloads will be ¥300 ($3) each and like other variations on existing characters, will be treated as unique additions to the roster. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita in Japan on January 23, followed by Europe and North America on January 24 and 28, respectively.
