Goku is still powering up in a galaxy far far away
Can you beat the sheer spiritual power of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC? I submit that you cannot! More is on the way, and a new Bandai Namco YouTube video shows us exactly what that entails.
It’s none other than Goku (Ultra Instinct -Sign-), which is not a typo, nor is it a Guilty Gear sequel. It’s simply a DLC character by way of the “Awakened Warrior Pack,” and it’s coming this summer in part because of the “Conton City Vote,” where players selected Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC they wanted to be added in from a poll of five characters. Framing it as a “wish” from a dragon in-universe is low-key a really cool way to do this.
As a reminder, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 arrived in 2016, before the new console generation was even here. It eventually came to Switch a year later, and is still going strong on that platform, as well as PC, PS4, and Xbox One: the Switch isn’t being left out of this DLC run either. It’s a testament to how long Bandai Namco will stick with something that sells; a stark contrast to games that don’t get that same love.
Speaking of Bandai Namco, that new logo is super jarring! I’ve gotten so accustomed to the stark contrast of orange and yellow with distinct lettering, and now it feels like I’m linking a bootleg channel. I’ll get used to it in turn, but it’s way harder to spot at a glance.
