Two Playable Characters And One Big Boss Fight Come To Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Anime fans, get excited. Fighting game fans, get even more excited. The latest news surrounding Dragonball Z: Kakarot is big. As the title suggests, the game is all about protagonist Goku's story, but that doesn't mean the developers haven't included some fan favorites as playable characters. 

According to the latest issue of Weekly Jump in Japan, Adult Gohan and Vegito will be in the game. The game goes through the whole of Goku's life, so he's able to watch his son Gohan go from a little bundle of joy to a big, muscle-bound nerd. During the game's Cell saga, players will be able to fight as little Gohan. Later, during the Buu saga, they'll get to see Gohan all grown up and in his full power.

Adult Gohan is arguably the most powerful character in the entire universe of Dragonball Z, but has rarely had time to shine in the anime's narrative. 

Vegito, on the other hand, is the poorly-named, fused version of Goku and his brother Vegeta. Using some stylish earrings and a special technique, they are able to fuse into a single, super-powerful being despite their... let's say rocky past (don't all brothers try to kill each other at one point or another)? Anyway, it takes their combined power to take down Super Buu. There are several different Buus that oppose our heroes throughout Dragonball Z, but what's important to know is that at the end of Vegeta and Goku's bout with Super Buu, he turned into Kid Buu

Kid Buu is actually more powerful than any of his previous forms, so get ready for the boss fight of your life. When the game launches on Jan. 17, 2020, players will be able to play through the whole of the Saiyan saga, and take on Kid Buu themselves.
