Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot intro videos explain the lore, concepts, and combat


Kakarot 101

We're still a few months out from the launch of action-RPG Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, but Bandai Namco has released the first two in a series of "introduction videos" to help get fans up to speed on Kakarot's narrative, concepts, and where it fits within general DBZ lore.

The videos look at some of Kakarot's support characters - such as Krillin and Yamcha - as well as how these sidekicks will help Goku in battle with their individual talents. While generally sticking to the brand's original lore, Kakarot will use some poetic licence to integrate new encounters and side-stories, alongside recognisable fist-flying showdowns and other famous events.

We also get to see some of the alternate characters that players will be able to control within the game's universe. These alt characters will be able to engage in battles and mini-games just like Goku, and will even have their own dedicated side-quests. The playable characters revealed so far include Gohan, Vegeta, and Piccolo.

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot launches January 17 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
