Fans of Dragon Ball will soon have a new game to get their hands on: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot releases on January 17 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Following the success of Dragon Ball FighterZ in 2018, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is just the latest in a long line of Dragon Ball video games, but while the story won’t include any surprises for longtime fans, Kakarot sets out to give fans something slightly different by introducing open-world RPG elements.
If you haven’t pre-ordered the game but are interested in picking it up on day one, there’s a nice pre-order discount available right now at Amazon, just over a week before the game’s release. The standard edition of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is currently on sale for $50 for both PS4 and Xbox One, $10 off the full price. You’ll get free two-day shipping if you have Amazon Prime, as usual.
You’ll get some bonus in-game content as a pre-order perk as well. Pre-ordering Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will unlock an exclusive sub-quest called “A Competitive Party with Friends”; early access to training with Bonyu, the new character designed by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama for Kakarot; and a new cooking item that permanently boosts melee attack and HP.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot retells the classic story of Goku that fans are probably very familiar with, but it’s not a pure fighting game as with previous Dragon Ball titles. While you’ll fight in iconic battles with characters like Raditz, you’ll also experience life as Goku–training, eating, flying around, driving a car, and, uh, fishing using Goku’s tail. Kakarot will also include side quests with “never-before-seen story moments,” but the mainline story will focus on familiar events covered in the popular anime.
