The action RPG has been delayed to early 2020.
It seems the rumours were true after all. Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball Project Z, an action RPG that retells the story of Goku and friends against foes like Vegeta and Frieza, is officially called Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Check out the latest trailer below, which features many iconic moments from the franchise.
Out in early 2020, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is developed by CyberConnect 2 (who were actually working on Final Fantasy 7 Remake before Square Enix took over). The focus is squarely on Goku this time around, as he’ll go from tussling with Vegeta and his infamous Oozaru form to battling Frieza on the planet Namek. The latter marks the first appearance of the iconic Super Saiyan form.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is in development for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Expect more gameplay footage to emerge in the coming months, especially with Gamescom taking place in August. What kind of challenging battles, quests, and mechanics can be expected? Stay tuned for more details and coverage from E3.
