The just released action-RPG Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot received a day one patch to iron out some last minute kinks. Throughout the years there have been dozens of different Dragon Ball games, for arcades to consoles to mobile and nearly every conceivable platform in between. Kakarot may be Bandai Namco’s most ambitious effort yet though, as the developer set out to tell Goku’s entire Dragon Ball Z character arc.
It’s not unusual for a game to receive a day one patch, especially considering how prevalent they’ve become in this generation of consoles. Although many games use the update to adjust last minute technical problems, some have taken extreme liberty with the amount of data included – such as Fallout 76, which had a day one update bigger than the base game. Another game with a gargantuan day one update was Anthem, which required a bevy of fixes both large and small to get the game to run.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is here along with a ceremonious day one update, detailed by Bandai Namco. The version 1.01 and 1.02 updates provide improved loading times, additional fast travel options and bonus content. Additionally, the entry fee of the „Time Attacks“ (advanced) was adjusted from 3,000 Zeni to 1,500 Zeni.
Long loading times are something that have plagued console games because of their use of traditional hard drives. However, that problem may soon be rectified as Microsoft has already confirmed that Xbox Series X will use a solid state drive. Of course, as may have been the case with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, the long load times could be the fault of the developer, although it seems like Bandai Namco has resolved that problem in the day one patch.
All in all, the day one update for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot isn’t very large in comparison to those of other AAA games on the market. It’s encouraging that the update isn’t a scrambled attempt at fixing a game that wasn’t ready for release, which is something that was obviously the case with Anthem. Reviews for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot have started to come out in the past 24 hours, with many critics agreeing that the game’s positives outweigh its negatives. For Dragon Ball Z fans, there’s seemingly a lot to love. Kakarot gives players an unprecedented level of immersion within the world of Dragon Ball through the use of a semi-open world. Most of the Dragon Ball games of yore put heavy emphasis on battles and tournaments rather than story and immersion, so it’s great to see Bandai Namco switch things up with the development of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, even if it isn’t a quantum leap forward for gaming.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
