Dragonball Z Kakarot is going to be huge and if I may be so bold as to say that it we will be living every part of kakarot goku’s life via gameplay. The gameplay looks awesome and from what I’ve seen that it looks like a somewhat somber copy of Dragonball Xenoverse but it differs in so many ways.

The action is going to be more on par with the game and you’ll be able to see and do a lot of things in real time; that includes using Goku’s Kamehameha. Using these moves always felt good and right but a bonus is the power that you feel when you pull the move off yourself. Definitely and for truly a Dragonball Z game at heart, it’ll be the most played game when the time comes for it to premiere.

Now a specific expectation of mine is that the Dragonball Super Arc makes it into the game and that includes everything leading up to the Tournament of Power and the meeting of Lord Beerus, Destroyer of the 7th Universe along with his faithful attendant, Whis. The Dragonball Super Arc would make the game blow up but more on that later on in this post which I’ll cover now.

Action

Action, Action, kakarot goku is all about action even when he fought Captain Ginyu, what a show stopper. Dragonball Z Kakarot is going to have a lot of action in it and what makes the action or makes up the action, the fights. I’ve known for a long time the action that Dragonball Z games pack and it is so extreme and DBZ Kakarot will be no different. In fact, in one of the fights that Vegeta has with one of Frieza’s underlings, the fight begins and ends the same way. Check out this video

I was sort of thrown for a loop when I saw how the game would actually play and I’ve had a bit of a change of heart about how awesome the game would be, but after watching video after video, I was thinking to myself “this game is going to be good”. I almost didn’t think so though, I thought the same thing about Dragonball Z Infinite World, and that turned out to be a big bust. Ultimately, I cannot see this game being a big bore especially since there are too many people who have their own expectations about the game but I can say that I am looking forward to it.

Bigger than Xenoverse

Dragonball Z Kakarot is going to be bigger and much more entertaining than Dragonball Xenoverse, I’ve had a chance to play Xenoverse and I wasn’t that impressed with it and I’d even go so far as to say that Xenoverse sort of leaves a lot to be desired in the way of gameplay and primary objective. I know you’re fixing the flow of time via fights with the actual characters but its so easy to become consumed with the actual task that everything else doesn’t matter.

Also, you’re introduced to Future Trunks and the God of Time, Chronoa; good but not great. Now, even though Dragonball Z Kakarot leaves a lot to be desired right now seeing as how there is a video here and there, it is without a doubt going to be big time. With Dragonball Z Kakarot, you fight the battles as they are and I really do hope they have plans to have the Super Arc because the game would certainly pop as is.

Overall, Dragonball Xenoverse even the second one is not going to have anything on this game especially since kakarot goku is going to be spear-heading the action like he always does and the game is going to give you all that and more.

A Dragonball Z game and more

Now, when I say that Dragonball Z Kakarot is going to be a big game, it’s going to be a big game. I notice, it’s going to combine what every Dragonball Z before it had along with some new elements. For one, Kakarot Goku will be able to fish using his tail which, if I’m doing the math right, will allow him to replenish his health.

I don’t know if they’re planning on bringing back the Z capsules but I hope they don’t because they just complicated things and if I’m being completely honest, it didn’t make sense to put them in the Budokai Series or the Shin-Budokai for that matter. The game is going to have characters who were “favorites” in the Dragonball Z-verse like Eighter and those Red Ribbons pricks.

Also, you’ll be able to move around about the map flying to different locales and even seeing as well as listening to the wails and lament of people on the ground down below. The great thing about it is too that you’ll have Piccolo with you if you’re not going to go straight to the action right away which you shouldn’t. I believe, with my whole heart, and given my professional opinion, this is a game you should not rush thru and the amount of stuff that you do in game will see to it you don’t.

My expectation of the game i.e. Dragonball Super Arc

I have but one expectation, that is to bring the Dragonball Super Arc to the game because I think it would be interesting to be able to see kakarot goku come at Jiren with his everything even going so far as to put Ultra Instinct in the game thereby giving Goku options about his form or the Super Saiyan Blue Form along with Super Saiyan God. It’ll be like Goku having access to all of his forms including his basic Super Saiyan 1, 2 and 3.

I really hope that they put in all of these and more because this would make the game explode but I can’t wait until the game comes out so because I get the feeling that we are all in for some major surprises.

Conclusion

Kakarot Goku is a Saiyan who has brought us countless fights and action packed entertainment throughout his time as Anime’s Mascot, and continues to do so in his upcoming game Dragonball Z Kakarot, a game detailing the life and times of Goku and his friends as well as allies. The game is going to bigger than Xenoverse and it is already more Dragonball Z game than Infinite World or Shin-Budokai.

The expectation is that the Dragonball Super Arc gets added to the game, it’ll really make the game pop and make it an excellent buy. So what do you guys think of my post, good, bad or right on? Leave me a message and I’ll get back to you immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.

      Chloe, there’s not much to understand about the Dragonball Series and its popularity; at first I didn’t understand either but that changed when I got into Dragonball Super. I don’t know if you know about Dragonball FighterZ which came out on PS4; you can also use it as a teaching tool to help further your understanding about the series.
