Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot's Opening Cinematic Is A Blast Of Nostalgia



Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will cover the entire Dragon Ball Z story, from the Saiyan Saga all the way to Buu, when it releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 17, 2020. It will even cover the series' filler content, including the episode where Goku and Piccolo learn to drive. But until now, one element of the classic Dragon Ball Z experience had been missing from previews--the iconic opening theme song.

We're not talking about Rock the Dragon from the original English release here; Dragon Ball Z Kakarot opens with the original Japanese theme, Cha-La Head Cha-La, alongside scenes from the game that sometimes match with the original anime opening. The opening of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, featuring the tune that debuted alongside the series in 1989, is below.

While Goku is the main star of the game, you'll also play as numerous other characters in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, including Gohan, Vegeta, and the fused Vegito.

Preorder bonuses are shown at the end of the trailer above, and include a unique subquest, an additional cooking item, and early access to training with Bonyu, a new character designed by series creator Akira Toriyama.
