'Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot' Collector's Edition Is Beautiful, But Very Expensive
Based on what we've seen, heard, and played so far, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot really is shaping up to be the most essential Dragon Ball Z video game to date. Published by Bandai Namco and developed by CyberConnect 2, the open world action-RPG serves as as re-telling of near enough the entirety of the original Dragon Ball Z anime, and promises the chance to relive epic moments from the series and take control of numerous characters, including taking control of characters from across each saga, including Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, and Piccolo.
More details on the anticipated title, which is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 17, 2020, were revealed by Bandai Namco during the Tokyo Game Show, and there were some revelations that are bound to work Dragon Ball Z fans around the world into an excited tizzy. Perhaps one of the juiciest nuggets of info to come from the show was that the entire Buu arc would be included in the game at launch, joining the previously-confirmed Saiyan, Frieza, and Cell arcs. That's a lot of iconic scenes to relive in one game, and I'm not quite sure my heart can take it.
As if the chance to play through multiple seasons worth of Dragon Ball Z action wasn't already a tempting enough prospect for any anime fans out there, Bandai has sweetened the deal considerably by unveiling an incredibly handsome - and hugely expensive - collector's edition, the crown jewel of which is a 20cm x 20cm x 20cm plastic diorama depicting Goku and Gohan aboard the Flying Nimbus, as a dinosaur strides alongside. It is the very definition of awesome.
The Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Collector's Edition also comes with a few other tasty incentives, including the full game (obviously), a steelbook, art book, fold out map, and season pass access - though it's not yet clear what the plan is for the game, post launch. Check it out for yourself below.
Before you get too excited, I should advise you that this isn't the cheapest collector's edition out there. If you're really keen to slide this badboy onto your shelf/cabinet/wherever you keep this kind of crap, you'll have to part with no less than £219.99. To be fair, that isn't actually that bad a price considering everything you get with it. I've certainly seen collector's editions that charge a lot more for a lot less.
