Season Pass And DLC Release Date

The game will come with a season pass, which will include two-story missions.

With that in mind, there are plenty of choices. The one that makes the most sense is the Broly movie, as it can fit in as a post-game mission; considering how popular the recent movie was, even if it wasn't from DBZ.

Perhaps characters such as Broly, or movie specific ones will appear in the story at a later date as DLC.
