Bandai Namco has regularly been showing bits and pieces of their upcoming Action-RPG game, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. A new trailer for the game was just revealed at Gamescom 2019 which shines some light on the expected plot of the new title. The trailer focuses more on Kakarot’s son, Gohan, and his relationship with his father. The gameplay footage shows Goku raising his son from his earliest appearance in the anime series to the final battle against the villainous Cell. Check out the trailer below.
Aside from all the fighting and action sequences, the trailer unveils some of the more “downtime” parts of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. Goku can be seen carrying Gohan through the forest before his fight against Raditz. It also features the father-son duo flying on the nimbus alongside dinosaur and other creatures. There is also a “meal time” where Goku and Gohan can eat plates of food to increase their stats.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release tied to the trailer:
“Experience the story of DRAGON BALL Z from epic events to light-hearted side quests, including never-before-seen story moments that answer some burning questions of DRAGON BALL lore for the first time!”
For fans of the series, there’s plenty of action to behold. This latest trailer shows Gohan turning the tide of battle against Raditz, the moment he was able to reflect the Spirit Bomb while fighting Vegeta and the moment he sees his father turning Super Saiyan for the first time.
Gohan really shines during the Cell Saga specifically, where he surpasses his father and becomes a Super Saiyan 2. Given the content of this Gamescom trailer, many fans wonder if moments from the Buu Saga might be featured next.
In July, it was revealed that Goku won’t be the only playable character in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Vegeta, Piccolo and Gohan will have a dual role in the game as playable and support characters. Vegeta and Piccolo will be playable when players get to Planet Namek during the Frieza Saga, while Gohan will have a unique story when he trains with Piccolo before the arrival and Nappa and Vegeta.
As we see from the Gamescom trailer, Gohan will be playable during the fight with Cell and during his training with Goku.
