Bandai Namco’s upcoming third-person action game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has been getting a lot of attention from fans of the anime. Featuring a new take on the classic franchise, the game is set to be an open-world action adventure with fighting game elements, rather than just a straight-up fighter like almost every other video game adaptation. There has been a steady wave of information release since the game’s original announcement, but one thing that people have been looking forward to is the full map reveal.

Luckily, popular YouTuber Ken Xyro, who goes by AppleKen, has released a video showcasing the extensive map that we’ll get to explore when the full game launches. His video also goes over some of the other cool features of exploration and map traversal. Check out the full video below:

The game’s map is definitely impressive, with Earth consisting on 19 major locations from the Dragon Ball franchise that players will be able to explore at their leisure. Well-known locations like Kami’s Lookout, Ginger Town, West City, and more are all present, and as you progress through the game, the map will be changing according to the story. For instance, the Cell Games Arena will obviously only exist once you are knee-deep in the Cell Saga much later on in the game’s story.

Aside from the locations on Earth, there are a few off-world environments to explore. No Dragon Ball Z game would be complete without a trip to King Kai’s tiny round planet, where you’ll be able to take part in special training. Namek and Supreme Kai’s planet will also be available, since they are vital to the Frieza and Buu Sagas, respectively. However, it is unknown exactly how big these planets will be, or if we’ll be able to explore them to the same extent as the Earth locations.

Of course, in a massive open-world game such as this, it’s also important to have an easy way to get around. Sure, pretty much all of the main characters in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot can fly, but why take to the skies when you can travel around the world in a fancy, customizable car? Or how about a crazy-looking bi-pedal robot? Luckily, these are both available in the game, and will even have their own unique challenges and missions to accomplish.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is shaping up to be yet another incredible adaptation of the world’s biggest anime franchise, and the good news is that we won’t have to wait long to get our hands on it. The game is set for release on January 16th, 2020, and will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
