Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming to Nintendo Switch in September 2021

The action RPG adventures of Goku and friends is coming with much of its DLC to Nintendo Switch this coming September.


Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has already been around for quite a while on various platforms, but Nintendo Switch hasn’t gotten the love since the game has been out, receiving update after update. That’s about to change. Kakarot was revealed to be coming to Nintendo Switch during E3 2021. What’s more, it’s going to be coming this September 2021 and will include several DLCs that have come out for the game since its initial launch.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot was revealed for Nintendo Switch during the Nintendo E3 2021 Direct presentation on June 15, 2021. The game originally came out in January 2020 on multiple platforms. Nintendo Switch was unfortunately not one of them at the time. That’s going to be changing soon with a September 24, 2021 release date announced for the game on Switch. The September release of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will not only have the original game, but it will also feature the A New Power Awakens Part 1 and Part 2 DLC. With this, you’ll adventure all the way from the very start of Dragon Ball Z through events of Dragon Ball Super.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has been a fun and interesting way to experience the lengthy sagas and arcs of the Dragon Ball Z era of anime. Originally announced back in Xbox’s E3 2019 presentation, the game came out to decent enough reviews, including ours here at Shacknews. Though the base game featured a wealth of the Dragon Ball Z story, DLC that has come out for it since has featured extensions of the game all the way through later arcs like Dragon Ball Super and films like Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

With a September 24, 2021 release date marking the game and its DLC’s arrivals on Nintendo Switch, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot’s adventure will now be available to more players. Stay tuned and be sure to check out our other E3 2021 coverage throughout the weekend.
