In contrast to last year's Dragon Ball FighterZ, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (opens in new tab) is a colourful and sprawling action RPG. There have been Dragon Ball Z games like it in the past, but this instalment introduces some nice new features, in particular a weighty RPG progression system and a revamped fighting system. The game launches this Friday, and to celebrate Bandai Namco has released the launch trailer embedded above.
