Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Vehicle Customization Revealed (VIDEO)
While premising a life-long chronicle of Goku, the Earth’s greatest protector, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has also shown itself to be much more over the last few months before release. Having already detailed an epic array of RPG mechanics, playable characters, as well as clever recreations of scenes from the franchise, it appears the expansive new title will also include customizable vehicles to better help players travel place-to-place in style.
Revealed recently by Bandai Namco on Twitter, DBZ Kakarot looks to have a nifty vehicle-creation system in mind for when simply flying between destinations just won’t do. Upon collecting spare parts scattered around the game’s world, players can exchange these loose scraps with Bulma for a new set of wheels–or in some cases, a pair of Robo Walker legs. These vehicle types are customizable by installing varyingly-advanced chips and stat-altering materials, available through regular exploration or from tech traders located around each world. Check out the video showcase below.

Short of advanced maneuvers like Instant Transmission, flying has always been considered a preferred means of transportation the Dragon Ball series, whether it be from Goku’s Nimbus cloud or the Sky Dance technique. However, inclusions such as drivable cars certainly adds some welcome options to how one can get around, especially as zooming to a destination would often seem too quick or easy. It’s also great to see potential story implications added alongside vehicle customization, as this mode will undoubtedly tie-in to Goku’s previously-revealed driving test segment.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 17th, 2020.
