Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will allow you to swap between a plethora of Z-Fighters, including Goku, Kid Gohan, Vegeta, and many more. Another playable character has been announced for the upcoming action-RPG–and this time, it’s the Potara fusion Vegito.
A recent issue of Weekly Jump confirmed that Vegito will be playable when DBZ: Kakarot arrives on January 17, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The reveal didn’t specify how involved Vegito’s role is, but the magazine clarified that Kid Buu will be a boss later in the game’s story.
Unlike Gogeta, who appears after Goku and Vegeta perform the fusion dance, Vegito emerges when both characters wear a single Potara earring on opposite ears. Vegito returns in Dragon Ball Super’s “Future” Trunks Saga and is playable in Arc System Works’ Dragon Ball FighterZ.
DBZ: Kakarot was revealed during Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference, where Bandai Namco and Xbox unveiled a gameplay trailer showing off familiar faces and huge boss battles. A separate issue of Jump magazine announced that the action-RPG will stretch into the Cell Saga, as well as cover filler material and introduce new characters.
Pre-ordering DBZ: Kakarot nets you a few bonuses, like an additional side quest and early access to Bonyu’s training. There are also plenty of editions available to purchase, including Standard, Deluxe, Ultimate, and Collector’s. The Ultimate edition features the season pass while the Collector’s edition comes with an 8x8x8 diorama figure.
