Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Reveals Release Date, Buu Saga Footage (VIDEO)

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is set to deliver the epic story of Goku, following the main protagonist through his numerous fight-filled adventures across space, time, and planes of existence. So far, several notable arcs have been confirmed such as Vegeta’s villainous arrival in the Saiyan Saga, the fan-favorite Namek/Frieza Saga, as well as the titular hero’s quest to receive his driver’s license. The Buu Saga arc has now also been confirmed at Tokyo Game Show 2019, the announcement coinciding with the reveal of the game’s official release date.

As shown in the trailer below, the story arcs of the past are given a spotlight, starting with Goku and Gohan’s introduction to the two’s father-son Kamehameha during the climax of the Cell Saga. Following this are the first snippets from the Buu Saga, teasing several memorable moments from the era such as Gohan’s run as the goofy Great Saiyaman, Vegeta’s dark turn as Majin Vegeta, to the reveal of the pink, candy-loving antagonist himself. The footage ends with the reveal of an official release date: January 17th, 2020!

There we have it. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is now confirmed to release next year, leaving just over four months until Goku-centric RPG sees release. As the video ends with the tease of “to be continued,” it’s a safe bet that we haven’t seen the last of Buu just yet, with more substantial footage likely coming up as 2019 comes to a close. Of course, there are likely even more surprise inclusions to be had before Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 17th, 2020.
