Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Vegeta Gameplay Shows 3v1 Combat, Free Roam, and More

Recently, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has been incredibly forthcoming with information. Not only was a new trailer that focused on the Buu Saga revealed a few days ago, but the Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot release date was finally announced. Now, it seems the game has decided to give fans a closer look at the gameplay of Saiyan Prince Vegeta, both in combat and outside of it.

Unfortunately for English speakers who were hoping it gave a glimpse into Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot's story, it's worth mentioning that this trailer is only available in Japanese for now. It's clear, though, that the time period of the trailer is after the Frieza Saga and likely close to the Trunks arc, as Vegeta is shown running around in his pink Badman shirt on Earth. It does highlight a few locations such as Capsule Corp, the main city, and the area surrounding it, so the trailer does provide a time period for story-concerned fans, at least.

Perhaps the most notable portion of the Free Roam segments is when it shows Vegeta using a speed technique that highlights the nearby area, with him disappearing from view and reappearing elsewhere (around the 11:00-minute mark). Considering how quick everything always happens in the franchise, it's a nice touch even if it's full use in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot wasn't shown.

Combat-wise, it shows what appears to be the training mode for Tien, as there is a menu selection before Vegeta and Tien begin to spar. The next combat section is a 3v1 fight in DBZ: Kakarot, where it appears that three surviving members of Freiza's army have appeared to apprehend Vegeta. This is the first time that an uneven fight has been showcased, though technically Cell was shown to split himself into three during the Cell vs. Super Saiyan 2 Gohan fight, and something that will hopefully keep the combat lively.

Of course, Vegeta's iconic Galick Gun is also showcased in the combat. Other details shown in the trailer include Vegeta talking to Bulma's father, Vegeta taking a moment to go fishing, and even Vegeta setting up camp to cook some food. In other words, this trailer is 15-minutes of goodness for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot fans.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is set to release on January 17, 2020, for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
