The long-awaited Nintendo Switch™ version of "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" goes on sale Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021! In celebration, we're taking a look at how the various scenes and locations from the manga were depicted in the game, breaking things down into four distinct themes. For the second part in this four-part series, we're concentrating on some aspects of the game that the development team were dead set on nailing! We'll be introducing some unmissable feast scenes and an addictive minigame that's full of little surprises!
"Dragon Ball" is bursting with scenes depicting intriguing ingredients and feasts of kingly proportions. Each region even has its own distinct cuisine, making for a delectable diversity of dishes.
Of all the sumptuous scenes in Dragon Ball, we're sure you'll agree that the post-fight meals are particularly memorable! The crème de la crème of which is perhaps the 50-person banquet that Goku devoured single-handedly after his dramatic defeat at the hands of Jackie Chun (Kamesennin in disguise) at the 21st Tenkaichi Budokai.
Food also plays a crucial role in "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot"! Try your hand—or should we say tail?!—at fishing with your tail, hunt yourself a juicy-looking dinosaur, and experience Goku's wild lifestyle from the manga for yourself. The food you eat will boost your in-game stats, so rustling up a balanced diet is essential for success and an important part of training!
Nobody does mealtime scenes quite like Dragon Ball! Looking at all this food is starting to make us hungry...!
Shortly after starting high school, Gohan found himself on the baseball field for the first time in sports class. He stunned his classmates when he effortlessly caught a ball that looked nothing short of a sensational homerun fired off by his classmate, Shapner.
Now it's your turn to step up to the plate in the minigame based on Gohan's baseball class in "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot"! But Shapner isn't your only rival—Yamcha, Android 18, and even Vegeta are all waiting to show you who's boss! The keen eyed among you might just be able to spot that, just like in the manga, in-game Gohan also uses a reverse grip!
Hit a home run and send that baseball into space!
Next time, we're taking a look at some destructive scenes that no Dragon Ball fan can afford to miss! See you then!
