‘Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot’ Will Let You Collect the Dragon Balls

  • Search the world for all seven.
  • Have rematches with defeated enemies.
  • Face off against hidden and powerful foes.


One of the most anticipated games for early 2020 is Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. This upcoming open-world action RPG is being developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Players will be able to get their hands on Kakarot on the 17th of January for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Kakarot is based off of the immensely popular Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama and is named after the main protagonist Goku’s Saiyan name.

With the release coming closer, Bandai Namco have slowly been releasing information about Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. We saw the title at E3 2019, received new screenshots shortly after, got a Gamescom trailer showing off the Cell Saga, got some teasers for the Buu Saga, got to see Badman Vegeta in action, and got a trailer with even more information about the title’s Soul Emblem system. Today, thanks to Ryokutya2089, we learned about even more new mechanics coming to the RPG.

The latest issue of V-Jump has detailed several new features of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. One of these is a Dragon Ball-collecting mechanic. Scattered across the world, players can explore and search for the seven magical Dragon Balls. Once you’ve collected all seven, you’ll be able to make a wish. One example of these wishes given was the ability to get a rematch against a defeated enemy. This allows dream matches not seen in the original story to take place, and defeating these foes will grant you Soul Emblems. You’ll also get increased attack power and experience points to help level up your character.

There are also series villains with sinister auras that may appear on the field. These enemies are terribly strong and will prove to be very challenging for the player. Should you be able to overcome these powerful enemies, you’ll get major benefits applied to your fighter. Players can think of these as optional, more powerful bosses. The key visuals from the magazine feature many villains from the show, such as Androids, various forms of Buu, King Cold, and Spopovich. Be the ultimate Saiyan and fight everyone and everything multiple times.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is shaping up to be one of the best Dragon Ball experiences ever created. I was sold on the first trailer, and it’s how I’ve always wanted a game to be. More importantly though, are you sold on it? What would you like to see added to Kakarot?  To stay up to date on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, make sure to follow the developers on Twitter, Facebook, and their official website.
