Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is a mix between an open world action game and a classic fighter. Although the main focus of the game is combat, there’s lots of stuff to do between bouts, and a large world to explore, filled to the brim with secrets, collectibles, characters you can meet and help, and delicious meals you can gobble down. Knowing all this, you can expect it to be quite a long game. If you’re worried whether you can give it the time it requires, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will show you how long to beat Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, depending on your play style.
How long is DBZ Kakarot?
The only info we have on the game’s length at this point are early reviews. One such review comes from a Japanese gaming magazine called Famitsu. According to translations of the review that can be found all over, you’ll need around 40 hours to beat the game without engaging with the side content too much. If you’re after 100% completion, you’ll need between 80 and 100 hours. That’s pretty meaty, if we’re being honest.
If you’re not interested in min-maxing and seeing all there is, it’s still a pretty lengthy affair. As you can see, if you do decided to check out every nook and cranny, it more than doubles in length (said the actress to the bishop). You can spend 50+ additional hours in the game just by deciding to collect an insane amount of Z orbs, eat every exotic meal there is, complete all the side stories so you can get (and make use of) the soul tokens, unlock all the skills and super attacks, etc. You’ll probably only want to do that if you like the game very much, or are a platinum hound, but still – it’s a pretty big commitment.
