How is it different than past Dragon Ball games?
The game will be the first time a player can play through Goku’s story in such a comprehensive way, going far beyond the fights in a traditional beat-em-up adaptation.
In this instance, the player can train, fight, fish, eat, explore the world of Dragon Ball, and form friendships with other legendary characters from the manga and animated series.
When is it being released?
‘Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot‘ is coming out on January 17, 2020. It’s being released on PS4, Xbox, and PC. Several pre-order and special editions are available, unlocking extra missions and trainable characters, such as brand new character ‘Bonyu‘.
Who is Goku?
Son Goku, his full name, is the main protagonist of the original ‘Dragon Ball’ manga. The series was created by Akira Toriyama.
Son Goku is based on two other fictional characters: Superman (Goku and Superman’s origin stories are quite alike) and Sun Wukong (one of the main characters in a classic Chinese novel called ‘Journey to the West‘).
In his first appearance, Goku was depicted as an unconventional, odd little boy, sporting a monkey tail, learning martial arts, and having superhuman strength.
After meeting a girl called Bulma, he starts on a quest to find the fabled Dragon Balls, items that can ultimately lead to the ability to grant their possessor any wish they want.
