Gathering the Dragon Balls to make a wish has been a staple of Dragon Ball for decades, and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will continue that trend by letting players gather the Dragon Balls for their own wishes.
Players won't be able to wish for just anything, though. Instead, players can look forward to challenging enemies they can't find in the story. Wishing to fight a defeated enemy will grant some boosts to EXP as well as other rewards, which will likely provide players with enough incentive to explore the map to search for the iconic orange orbs.
The info comes via WCCFtech, which has provided readers with its first impressions of the game, saying that while Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot won't break any new ground, it's still an enjoyable experience.
The Dragon Balls have always been an iconic part of the series. They've been used to bring characters back to life, erase memories, and for comic relief. For example, Frieza wanted to use them to grow just a little bit taller during the recent movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be open-world, allowing players to travel across planet Earth. Locations from the anime and manga will also be featured, such as the Kame House, Ginger Town, and West City. Goku will even get his own car to drive around in. Players will play as Goku, joining him from the very beginning of his adventures, which has been done before but not on such a large scale. The attention to detail is amazing, as this version of Goku looks identical to his anime form. It will be exciting to see Goku's grand adventure remastered and in full color.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be released on January 17, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
