For those of you who do not know, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a semi open-world action role-playing game developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco. It is based on the Dragon Ball franchise and follows its protagonist Goku and the Z fighters. Fans of the universe know that Goku’s Saiyan name is “Kakarot”, which is the title of this game.

DBZ: Kakarot is both an RPG, as well as a fighter game, which helps you relive the anime’s story. The game features the Saiyan Saga, Freiza Saga, Androids/Cell Saga, as well as Boo Saga. So, in short, it features the entire tale of Dragon Ball Z anime where you get to be the protagonist! It’s everything a Dragon Ball Franchise fan would love.

The Switch version also consists of a new storyline or DLC called “A New Power Awakens”. With A New Power Awakens, fans can see the “Battle of Gods” take place in the game. Battle of Gods was the first saga in Dragon Ball Super 2017 and helped Goku unlock the power of a Super Saiyan God. This DLC will take a slightly different approach to this story than the anime’s take. We won’t reveal what as you should check that out yourself!
