Release date of the Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot for PS5, Xbox Series X now officially revealed

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is now prepared to make the switch over to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms after first being published at the beginning of 2020. Of course, it’s been backwards compatible there before, but on January 13th, less than three years after its first release, free upgrades will be offered to those who already possess the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. This week, Bandai Namco released a list of all the many additions and improvements the next edition of the game would have along with the date for this free upgrade.

Bandai Namco posted a clip along with the news of the game’s release date to demonstrate some differences between the Xbox and PlayStation versions of the game over time. Beyond that, it displays a combination of gameplay and movie clips showcasing some of the Dragon Ball Z series’ most recognisable moments. A press release stated that it would also have shorter load times and the in-game Card Warriors set will be accessible as an offline, single-player game. Details connected to the video highlighted the better visuals and the 60FPS gameplay made possible by the upgrade.

Following Bandai Namco’s initial confirmation that these new versions of the game were on the way, a release date for them has now been announced. It was also mentioned that more DLC for the game will be released to present yet another well-known Dragon Ball Z narrative. The following DLC, Bardock – Alone Against Fate, will chronicle the tale of Goku’s father Bardock. You’ll be controlling Bardock, and while it’s unclear how much of his tale will be shown to the player, we can assume it will end with a significant confrontation with Frieza.
