Bandai Namco dropped a new trailer for the previously announced Dragon Ball Game – Project Z. The title will now officially be known as Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, and will be coming in early 2020 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot takes a break from the fighting titles Dragon Ball Z has been known for, in exchange for an action RPG. The new title will take players through an epic telling of the Dragon Ball Z storyline. Hopefully this means that we’ll get to go all the way through the Buu saga!
Developed by CyberConnect2, the new title will take players “on an unforgettable adventure to experience over-the-top battles and challenging quests while creating lifelong friendships as they crusade to protect Earth from fearsome villains.” Apparently, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will also present resolutions to long unanswered questions from the Dragon Ball Z storyline through side quests. We aren’t sure if these side-quests will be developed in partnership with Akira Toriyama, but we assume he’ll have some input to make sure everything stays as accurate as possible.
The last Dragon Ball video game outing was Dragonball FighterZ, which we thought was “an insanely deep, but easy to play fighting game that is brimming with love and a deep appreciation for the source material.” We’re on the ground at E3 this week, and expect to get our hands on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as the week goes on, so stay tuned with us for updates and impressions on Goku’s latest outing.
Bandai Namco also had a few other announcements during the Xbox E3 Briefing, like a new FromSoftware/George R.R. Martin collaboration, and the new Tales of Arise. We don’t expect to get our hands on those, but we should have latest impressions for upcoming RPG Code Vein. Stick with us during the busiest week for gamers as we go hands on on the show floor.
