Bandai Namco’s upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, will be launching on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on January 17th, 2020, with pre-orders live now for the Standard, Deluxe, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions of the game. In order to celebrate this news, we’ve got a new trailer.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot tells the complete story of Goku and Dragon Ball Z as a whole, so it wouldn’t be a complete story without the appearance of Majin Buu. The entire Buu saga will be playable in Kakarot, along with the Saiyan, Frieza and Cell sagas, along with that one episode of the anime where Goku and Piccolo learn how to drive. It’s a complete collection, and it’s been promised that the game will “bring light to some long-running Dragon Ball Z mysteries as well”, according to the press release.
Pre-ordering Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will unlock early access to “Bonyu’s Training”, with Bonyu being a new character developed by Akira Toriyama, along with a new sub-quest and cooking items. The Deluxe Edition includes the base game, a cooking items with permanent stat boosts and the Season Pass, which will add 2 original episodes and a new story. The Ultimate Edition includes all of the above plus a music compilation pack and the “Tao Pai Pai Pillar”, which is an original Dragon Ball series deep cut. Both those additional items will be available in Spring 2020.
For those with the cash to purchase it, the Collector’s Edition includes both the full game and Season Pass, as you would expect. There’s also an exclusive 20cm by 20cm by 20cm diorama, an official game art book, a steelbook to house the physical copy of the game and a World Hub Map. It’s a pretty decent collection, but it will set you back £220, or $200 in the US. Wow, the pound is really doing terribly.
