Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (Jan 16, 2020)
Few anime, if any, have the impact and legacy of Dragon Ball Z, and because of that we’ve seen countless games over the years. Yet Kakarot, somehow, presents a new experience, one that lets you take on the role of Goku in a semi-open world action-RPG.
The game once again spans everything from the Saiyan Saga to the Buu Saga, but outside of major story moments and battles you’ll actually be able to roam around and explore the world of Dragon Ball Z.
As you explore you’ll be able to meet a variety of characters from across the Dragon Ball series, not just those involved in the main story. You can form bonds with these characters, and at times, you’ll even form parties or play as other characters like Vegeta.
You’ll also be able to take on side activities like fishing or training, all to make Goku’s skills even better. Kakarot looks like it could be a unique twist on the Dragon Ball video game formula, and considering its developed by CyberConnect2, makers of the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on.
