We’ve already learnt about the roles of the other playable
and support characters in Goku’s journey, as well as a concrete release
date for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, amongst other things. Now though, Bandai
Namco want to tell us about the Dragon Balls and why you’ll soon have the desire
to summon the Eternal Dragon, Shenron.
In the highly anticipated action-RPG Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot,
the seven Dragon Balls are going to be scattered across different areas
throughout the game. By locating and collecting them, players are then able to
summon the mighty Shenron to revive previously defeated, well-known enemies. By
meeting and fighting those former foes once more, players may unlock new
dialogue options based on the situation at hand.
For example, if players revive Frieza once they have unlocked Goku’s Super Saiyan 3 transformation (a transformation Frieza did not get to witness in the original Dragon Ball Z anime), the two characters will share a short, never-before-seen, conversation. In addition to this, after defeating these enemies, players will gain XP and also unlock their Soul Emblems to use in the Community Boards to unlock new skills and abilities.
That’s all for now, but don’t forget that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is expected to arrive for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on 17th January, 2020. Are you looking forward to reliving Goku’s glory days once again? Which of his villainous foes would you like to bring back to life first, and why?
