If there’s anything that developer CyberConnect 2 has proven over the years with the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games, as well as the wholly underrated Asura’s Wrath, it’s that the studio is a master of sheer anime spectacle. Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is shaping up to be further proof of that, as evidenced by the goosebumps on my arms that I got while playing through the iconic battle of Goku and Piccolo vs Radditz, while the legendary opening song “Cha La Head Cha La” swelled in the background.
Dragon Ball Kakarot, formerly known Dragon Ball Project Z, is billed as an action RPG, but don’t let that sell its fighting mechanics short. If you’re a fan of the Spike and Dimps developed Dragon Ball games, you’ll feel right at home here. There’s mashy melee combos, ki blasts, high-speed dashes to approach or quickly escape your foe, and just about everything else you’ve come to expect, along with a few new twists.
