The Dragon Ball series has seen a bit of resurgence as of late, especially in the video game world. These titles have been pumped out left and right, and for the most part, with a lot of success. We’re now approaching Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, an action-adventure RPG set in the Dragon Ball universe. It’s taking a different approach to the series, though, in that it’s giving players a closer look at a day in the life of these beloved characters.

So far, we’ve seen a couple of trailers showing the iconic Dragon Ball characters, the epic sagas, and some of the activities you’ll be able to enjoy. Now, thanks to the latest trailer, we have more insights on the character progression system. This is one of the most important aspects of the game given that it is a role-playing game, after all.

As is the case with most RPGs, you’ll get to upgrade your selected characters after every battle. Experience points are earned, but winning battles isn’t the only way you’ll be able to progress your characters. You can also enhance skills and attributes through eating. This activity has always been featured in the anime series over the years.

After a long fought battle, we see our favorite heroes chowing down on some tasty-looking meals. The fighters always have a veracious appetite, which has provided plenty of comedic moments. It’s only right that eating would be a huge part of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. According to the trailer, there are many ways you’ll be able to get your grub on. You can visit your home base, buy some items at the store, or start cooking around a campfire.

The meals won’t just be given to you, though. You will in fact have to search for ingredients. Although it sounds a bit tedious, you’ll probably appreciate your meals more. After minutes and minutes of searching, all you’ll want to do next is sit down with a group of your favorite allies and pig out.

Collecting Z orbs will also be important for advancing your character’s special attacks. You can build upon them or create new skill trees, depending on how you plan on approaching combat. Any skills that have green icons, you’ll have to unlock them through training.

Based on these details, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is looking like the most in-depth Dragon Ball game yet. Fans are in store for a real treat.
