Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot publisher Bandai Namco made a promise that this action RPG would be the most accurate, detailed telling of Goku's story to-date. The latest reveals for the game seemingly confirm this, as the Great Saiyaman and DBZ: Kakarot's Home Run baseball mini-game have been revealed. Now, the latest set of screenshots show two enemies found in the anime that many may not even remember.
During the Majin Buu Saga, Goku and Vegeta end up on Babidi's space ship where they plan to stop the evil alien wizard from releasing Majin Buu and to defeat Dabura who recently petrified Krillin and Piccolo. Goku and Vegeta end up meeting and fighting two Majin enemies known as Yakon and Pui Pui, who are now confirmed to be in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot via these screenshots.
Vegeta would face off with Pui Pui first, with the fight being transfered to Pui Pui's home planet of Zoon, where Vegeta would still beat Pui Pui with ease. Goku's fight with Yakon is a bit more complex, as they are transferred to a world of darkness, but Goku manages to defeat Yakon by powering up his Super Saiyan form and essentially overfeeding Yakon with light. Both fights are going to be in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
While these Majin Buu Saga enemies are minor in the long run of things, Yakon and Pui Pui are testaments to Bandai Namco's promise. Yakon and Pui Pui are so minor that they can easily be (and often are) skipped in tellings of this story, meaning that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot appears to be as inclusive as possible when it comes to content, even including filler content such as the episode where Goku and Piccolo try to get their Drivers' licenses.
Still, Yakon and Pui Pui are just the latest in reveals for the upcoming action RPG. Players were also recently treated to some Vegeta gameplay that showed the Saiyan prince engaging in 3v1 combat with some former Frieza lackies, ultimately building hype prior to the January release of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 17, 2020.
