Kakarot + A New Power Awakens Set (Nintendo Switch)

The only anime I’ve ever really liked is Dragon Ball. I’ve watched Goku from start to finish and he’s one of my favorite cartoon characters of all time. Needless to say, I was looking forward to Kakarot’s arrival on the Nintendo Switch.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot revisits the Z saga. Takes you through the story of the Sayains, Goku’s true identity, and the rise of his son; the young but powerful Gohan. It’s a huge tribute to fans of the series. Filled with lots of Easter eggs, side quests and epic battles. Not to mention the Switch version has a good amount of the previous DLC for free. Including three fantastic storylines; Battle of the Gods, Resurrection F and a cool side story with future Trunks and his battle with the androids.

I got to play and beat Kakarot when it first released on PlayStation 4 last year. I can tell you from my own experience that there are no noticeable differences between the two. Unless you really focus on the graphics. Both games play the same and look almost identical. Of course, the PS4 version will be a little more sophisticated, but choosing one over the other is not enough. At least not for me. I found the game looked and played great even in handheld mode on the Switch.

As far as history goes, if I’m realistic we all know how this turns out. Every fan of the Dragon Ball franchise knows the Z saga from cover to cover. It was a big deal when I was a kid. I remember coming home from school with my brothers and I sitting in front of the TV episode after episode waiting for Goku to finally kill Frieza. Ah, the good ole days … Even though the game looked great, I skipped some of the cutscenes just because I’d seen it all before and knew the outcome.

Regardless of what happened, I still enjoyed playing Kakarot on the Switch. The player goes through the story in chapters. Each chapter usually includes a couple of fights, including a boss (or bosses) and one or two side missions. Between these chapters, you can explore the world of Dragon Ball. Which is actually pretty big, just a little sterile at times. As you fly around, you can collect bullets that you can spend on upgrading your skill tree. This allows you to have more powerful attacks and skills that make fighting much more interesting. You can also find items lying around on the map, such as cooking ingredients and healing potions. Goku can hunt animals

For me, the fights were the best part of the game. Some of them were pretty intense and a little frustrating, but landing that final blow was always satisfying. There are also plenty of challenges on the map where you can test your skills against your allies to learn new techniques and earn cool items along the way. Cooking is also another (smaller) part of DBZ Kakarot. You can add Chi Chi ingredients and learn new recipes that increase attack power or defense for a limited time. These can really help you with some of the more challenging fights, but it’s not really necessary and feels more like an optional completer side quest.

DBZ Kakarot does a great job of making you feel like you are in the anime too, and that’s one of the reasons I love it. From the graphics to the music to the gameplay, it’s definitely something fans want to play through. Especially if you haven’t experienced it before, the Switch version is a great choice. Having access to the DLC and being able to play anywhere is a huge plus. If you are a fan of the anime, I highly recommend trying out Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
