Announced via Bandai Namco UK’s Twitter, the free DBZ: Kakarot update which will soon be available includes a subquest featuring classic Dragon Ball characters Arale and Gatchan. Along with this new quest, the most notable addition would be the utilisation of the series’ featured time machine, which is a key story element in Dragon Ball Z’s Androids and Cell Sagas.
Players having access to the Time Machine will mean that even if their progression in the story has taken them to different worlds away from various quest-giving NPC’s, they’ll be able to use it to travel right back to the game map of a previously explored arc and get access to any sub quests they might have missed out on!
No exact date has been provided yet for this update, but hopefully it’ll be soon given this is such an important mechanic.
A FREE update is headed your way in #DragonBall Z: Kakarot!
