After the excellent Dragon Ball FighterZ
from 2018, Bandai Namco
and developer CyberConnect2
bring the same impressive anime aesthetic and visual detail to the new story-driven action-RPG - Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot
. A game that retells stories and arcs from the classic anime series - which is why we got our DBZ expert Edan Burg to review it.
Growing up on the DBZ as a kid (I’m actually rewatching the anime at the moment) I was more than a little keen to check out this new action-RPG set in the universe. Finally, a Dragon Ball Z game that would focus on story as much as it did combat and other weirdness - in the impressive visual style seen in 2018’s excellent Dragon Ball FighterZ. On the story front there’s an immediate sense of familiarity and comfort when you hear the Head-Cha-La theme song from the anime series, and even more when Goku and Gohan jump onto the flying Nimbus and head off to see Chi Chi.

Hearing Head-Cha-La as you’re getting a beating from an iconic character of the Dragon Ball Z universe is also a nice touch that pulls on the old nostalgia strings.
