DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT Will Feature Intentionally Unbalanced Fights

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will feature intentionally unbalanced fight, in what seems to be one of the best decisions ever made in any Dragon Ball video game in existence.

In a recent interview with Kotaku, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Director, Hara Ryosuke, explained that this game will be very different in comparison to other Dragon Ball games released in the past. The reason? Fights will be very unbalanced, and it will be all very intentional.

According to Ryosuke, the focus in recent games like Dragon Ball FighterZ and the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series, for instance, focus more on player vs player, which obviously means that characters need to be well-balanced in order fopr the developers to offer players fair fights against each other.

"A lot of the recent Dragon Ball games have put the focus really heavily on the player-vs.-player aspect, where both characters are somewhat on equal footing. The footing won’t be equal," revealed Ryosuke while putting emphasis on the fact that boss battles will be even more unbalanced.

"The boss fights are intentionally unbalanced just to depict that difference in strength between where Goku is and where these bosses are. The idea is to immerse the player into what Goku is feeling in those different moments. There are going to be a lot of battles where the enemy will throw a barrage of ki blasts that just fill the screen. Nappa has this massive explosion attack that also blows up an entire area."

While this may sound like a flaw in the development of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, this is actually a very smart move; considering that every single one of the fights Goku's been in have always been incredibly difficult for him at the beginning.

Battles being intentionally unbalanced adds a sense of "realism" within the world of Dragon Ball, and will make some fights in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot frustrating, sure, but also accurate to the series in a way we haven't seen before.

Relive the thrilling story of Kakarot, the legendary Saiyan better known as Goku, in the all-new Action-RPG DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT, coming early 2020. DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT will include English and Japanese voice-over along with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, as well as Russian, Polish and Arabic.
