Dragon Ball Z Kakarot

The Dragon Ball franchise has had many video games throughout it’s time. From its highly popular Dragon Ball Budokai series, to its newer Dragon Ball FighterZ. They’ve always tried to make a perfect representation of the story in their games, but . In the distance rises a new game, a game that would top all of the games that were made. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be the newest game in the Dragon Ball franchise due to release on January 17, 2020. The game was teased back in January of this year as Dragon Ball: Project Z, and later released the name being Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. It’s made with the Unreal Engine and developed by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and CyberConnect2. The game is a 3D free roaming action RPG with a very unique battle system not yet seen in a Dragon Ball game. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot takes aspects of gameplay from previous games, but is mostly its own unique system.
There was an interview done with the producer of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Ryosuke Hara, in which he was asked if the game is going to follow the original series strictly and if there will be side stories for the die-hard Dragon Ball fans. What I interpreted from the Dragon Ball Z Kakarot Interview was in previous games they could only go for the more action packed parts of the series, but with this game they will make the story follow as closely as possible to the series along with some sub-quests for the die-hard fans to enjoy. BANDAI has announced so much content from the game, including confirmations of all the original saga’s such as Saiyan Saga, Frieza Saga, Androids Saga, Cell Saga, Babidi Saga, and Majin Buu Saga.
Many fans are excited for the possibilities of this game and look forward to its release in early January. There is still lots of content that we don’t know about like how they will make the Dragon Balls work and if there will be stories from the movies like Fusion Reborn and Wrath of the Dragon. The amount of popularity the game has gained since its announcement is astonishing. It would be worth your time to look into the game and see if it’s right up your alley. I know it’s right up mine.
