DBZ Kakarot controls & commands

Here’s a list of controls for the console versions – we’re still missing much of the PC’s default keybindings, but we’ll update the guide as soon as we know more. The good thing about keyboard and mouse controls is that you can redefine them by rebinding actions to different keys, which means you can finely tune the layout.

The default keyboard controls in the last game were pretty comfy, so we’re hoping they won’t change them too much, like they did between the two Xenoverse games. It’s nice to have the option to fiddle, but it’s best to avoid it whenever possible.

How to change controls in DBZ Kakarot?

If you’re playing on PC, you might want to change your input method from gamepad to mouse and keyboard. To do this, you should select options in the main menu, then go to the graphics options tab. The first setting from the top is called Icons – change that to keyboard + mouse. This will change the button prompts to what you’re actually using. You can then keep circling through the tabs until you reach the type of controls you’d like to change, and set the key bindings to whatever you like.
