Dragon Ball Z kakarot Story Sagas
Dragon Ball Z kakarot will re-tell the entire epic story of Dragon Ball Z episodes / Manga but may skip the filler episodes from the show. The game will be played through all the epic moments of the DBZ series. The main story sagas revealed for the game are the Saiyan Saga, Frieza Saga, Cell Saga, and Buu Saga. The game will be played through all these Sagas and the narrator will be seen announcing the name of the Chapter in the beginning of every chapter.
There will be some non-manga portions that are cool like side quests announced for the game is the episode in which Goku and Piccolo attempt to acquire their driving licenses. This playable section will act as a driving mini-game. Certain characters in the game will come with their own original episodes as well (Android 16 and Teen Gohan will get their own episodes during the Cell Saga, for example).
Dragon Ball Z kakarot Combat, Exploration, and Side Quests
The game is primarily a big RPG game. You will play as “GOKU” and will fly through the open free world his his “Flying Nimbus” cloud and boosting through the sky as Goku himself. Like most action RPG’s, you’ll get the chance to level up your characters, engage in side quests, chat with familiar NPC’s, and hop into action-packed battles.
Each playable character will have access to basic melee combos, Ki charging/blasts, and shoulder button assisted special moves. For example, Goku’s first set of unique moves are the “Kamehameha,” “Scissors Paper Rock: Rock,” “Body Blow” and “Meteor Smash” attacks. And as expected, you’ll be able to tap into each playable character’s heightened abilities via powerful transformations.
