Bandai Namco has just shared a pair of new gameplay trailers for their latest DBZ-inspired fighting game outing, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 have been working hard on this new title, and it really shows thanks to the quality we see in terms of both gameplay and visuals.
The pair of new trailers focuses on story and combat, ostensibly the two most important things to fans of the legendary anime. The story is a basic retelling of the early adventures of Saiyan hero Goku, as he battles various enemies throughout his life. The pace is basically the same as the source material, so we see plenty of downtime between fights for training, fishing and relaxation.
The new fighting game also showed off some combat mechanics. The battle system looks a lot closer to the Xenoverse titles, so some fans will be excited by that.
Other trailers for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot have also been revealed, showing various gameplay elements and cool tidbits. For one thing, we’ve now gotten confirmation that series fan-favorites like Gohan and Piccolo will be in the game. And that’s very good news because there is strong suspicion among fans that players will be able to control the other playable characters throughout the course of the story.
But with the amount of story that DBZ has to offer from the various sagas, it’s currently unclear just how deep we’re going into that expansive history. We obviously get to see Goku and Raditz duking it out, and so far it has been confirmed that we’ll follow Goku up to the point where he turns Super Saiyan and defeats Frieza – it’s unclear whether or not the game will go beyond this and into the Cell and Buu sagas.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will release early 2020 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Check out the new trailers for the game down below. Both of them are pretty short, so it won’t take too much time out of your weekend.
