Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot releases on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S next month, but even those who already own the game have something to look forward to in January, as the first DLC expansion for the second Season Pass also launches in less than 30 days.
Publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Bardock – Alone Against Fate DLC will be released on January 13, the same day the game launches on current generation consoles. The Japanese publisher has also released a new trailer that shows Goku’s father fighting against Frieza.
Experience the story of Goku’s father, Bardock, who single-handedly fought against his destiny in this new story! This is the story of standing alone against the scum of the universe. Bardock, a warrior of the Saiyan race, spent his days conquering planets with his fellow soldiers. But an incident on planet Kanasa would bring his attention to a catastrophe that was set to befall his home planet, Planet Vegeta.
As mentioned earlier, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a solid retelling of the DBZ saga, although the side content is lacking compared to the main story missions, as we highlighted in our review in 2020.
The Dragon Ball fan in me loves Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, but the game fan in me was getting tired pretty quickly. Those great cutscenes and great shots kept me playing the game to see more, but too much in between those moments to spoil things. It becomes long, boring and repetitive. But at the same time, it’s great for the fans. I’m not going to torture myself by being forced to finish 100%, but many other fans like myself will feel compelled to at least finish the main story.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The game will debut on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S on January 14th worldwide.
