Bandai Namco has officially revealed the release date for the action-adventure game in the Dragon Ball universe, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. The release of the new game will land at the start of the new year in both Japan and the west in standard version along with Deluxe, Ultimate and Collector’s editions.
Check out the new announcement trailer for the game below:
While the Ultimate and Deluxe editions will include plenty of pre-order bonus content, in-game items, a new sub quest and the future Season Pass for the game, the Collector’s Edition will also come with a few physical goodies, as well. Collector’s Edition purchasers will be bale to get their hands on the collector’s Steel Book, a Hardcover Artbook and an Exclusive Diorama Figure.
You can view the pre-order bonuses via Bandai Namco below:
- Early unlock of the training menu to fight against former Ginyu Force member Bonyu – Bonyu is a female warrior and former member of the Ginyu Force created by Akira Toriyama. While she was a famous warrior that Ginyu was at the head of scouting when the Ginyu Force was first formed, she hated “those poses” and left the group. Players can fight a virtual Bonyu, recreated based on data obtained from the Ginyu Force spaceship, in the Capsule Corporation’s training room.
- Sub-Story: “A Dangerous Party of Friends” – A story in which Goku’s friends throw him a party to celebrate his return from planet Yardrat, which is a story that was not depicted in the original work.
- Bento: “Happy Ultra Finest Quality Meat” – Increase your status by eating meals in the agme. This is a status up item that will let you progress with an advantage in the early parts of the game.
The coveted Dragon Ball Z universe is making a huge splash once again in the video game series. Along with plenty of other manga inspired titles, such as Kill La Kill: The Game, the recently announce One Punch Man title and the manga cross over fighting title Jump force, Dragon Ball Z especially hits home. And with Arc System Works’ Dragon Ball FighterZ title hitting as one of the greatest fighting titles, let alone DBZ adaptions, today, the upcoming RPG title following the iconic Kakarot looks nothing short of brilliant, so far.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will release in the west on January 17, 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
