Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden, the fighting game developed by Arc System Works released last month in Japan on Nintendo 3DS, has yet to receive any DLC pack but it looks like some extra content is still going to be made available for the game in some way.
Bandai Namco has confirmed earlier today that a new Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Z-Assist character, Yakon, will be available for the game through a unique Japanese promotion from today until August 31st. In order to unlock the character, players will have to scan with their console a bar-code found on specific promotional material found in stores and then input a special command in the game.
As Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden has yet to be released in North America and Europe, we have no idea on how the character will be unlocked in the Western version of the game but we will surely hear more about the matter as we approach its final release date.
Two days ago it’s been confirmed that Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden will include a special bonus for all those who will pre-order the game on Amazon. This bonus has been confirmed for Europe last week but we were still unsure if it was going to be made available for North American players as well.
Before its Japanese launch, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden has received a playable demo including playable characters Goku, Kid Gohan, Vegeta, and Majin Buu, and assist characters Tien, Recoome, Korin, Turtle, Super Uub, Mercenary Tao, Hercule, and The Great Saiyaman. Save data from the demo also allows players to unlock Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku in the full game. There are currently no news on the Western launch of this playable demo but we will surely hear more about the matter in the near future.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is now available in Japan exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The game will be released on October 16th in Europe, Middle-East and Australia and on October 20th in North America.
