Over the course of many years, the Dragon Ball Franchise has dished out a multitude of games spanning over different genres and targeting different audiences. While most of the games tend to be fighting games, that hasn’t stopped developers from trying to create a role-playing game. The GameBoy Advanced and SNES games in particular were interesting yet flawed as well. The recent most title in the long-list of Dragon Ball Games was Dragon Ball Fighter Z which was a huge success for the series. Even its predecessor Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was excellent in its own way.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot was just announced at E3 2019 as the next big title for the franchise, it is an action-RPG game which claims to capture the true essence of the anime, something that most of the games in the franchise have been unable to do. From what we have seen so far, the game does, in fact, look very promising. What’s more interesting is that the game is going to expand the canon of the Dragon Ball Z storyline, something that many fans have wanted ever since the series ended.
Even the series creator Akira Toriyama commented on the game saying:
“This game brings the Dragon Ball Universe to life and I’m sure fans will truly be able to take a deep dive into the world. I hope you enjoy the game.”
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is building up to be a very special game. Another interesting aspect of the game that sets it apart from other titles is the fact that the game will feature character interactions that were not included in the original story. Goku will be able to interact with various characters, some of which didn’t get any screen time in Dragon Ball Z. The game’s director Ryosuku Hara commented on this saying:
“There’s the main story plot that you follow, and then there are substories, like what you saw in the demo with Android 8. There’s going to be other characters from past Dragon Ball series that will make an appearance kind of all grown up.’ You can talk to them and that will reveal, you know, a side story. So yes, definitely, it’s a lot of that too. There’s also a subquest that introduces a conversation between characters that you probably have never seen interact before.”
With all that being said we can’t wait to play Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, comment below on what you think about the game.
