Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 – Xenoverse 1 story DLC free for the first month of release

Posted on September 23, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Just like in Japan, Bandai Namco is including content from the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch and offering it in in the west. The process of gaining access is just slightly different.

For the Japanese release, Bandai Namco had the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1 content built right in. Once you cleared certain sections of the story in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, you’re able to access segments from the original by talking to a particular NPC. But from what we understand, for the western version, you first need to download the a pack from the eShop.

Bandai Namco says that the Xenoverse 1 content will be free for the first month of Xenoverse’s 2 release. After that, it will presumably become paid DLC in both North America and Europe.


If you head on over to the eShop and visit the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 page, you should be able to find the “Legend Patrol Pack”. This is 2.0GB and will be available until October 31. It’ll provide you with the Time Patrol story from Dragon Ball Xenoverse plus content from the Resurrection F and GT arcs.

Also worth noting, there’s “free unlock DLC” on the eShop as well. You can immediately unlock all playable characters from the main story, though you can also unlock them by progressing in the story. Note that it does not include characters included as paid DLC. This will also be distributed until October 31.

    To those panicking on the grounds of those planning to get Xenoverse 2 later/down the road, Just download both the “free unlock DLC” as well as the “Legend Patrol Pack” [FYI: Legend Patrol Pack IS the Xenoverse 1 Story Pack] right away/pronto

    This way you’ll be prepared

          I tried, but it says you must own The game. I was able to do the character unlock though

            I got the Legend Force pack and the Character Unlock DLC w/o any trouble
            It IS possible but it seems you got some bad luck there

            I am planning to get the game for Christmas thus why i opted to DL these 2 packs right away
            Moreso the Legend Force pack because of the limited time status

            I concur with Fox. It allowed me to download the free packs no problem.

    I don’t understand why they did this. If it’s included in the Japanese base game, why did they feel the need to separate it in the overseas release? Obviously to make more money, but then why not do that in the Japanese release too in that case? This exclusivity makes no sense to me.

    Sigh… I guess I’ll have to download this…

  • Jacob

    You can download them now for free from the eShop even if you don’t own the game!

      Good news !
      It’s waiting for me but I can’t go pick it up before next thursday, so I’ll just do that in the meanwhile.

    The North American eShop description implies both free packs won’t be available after October 31st.

    Xenoverse 2 has the same storstory as the first one just some new chapters and characters which is disappointing.
