Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot launches on January 16th, 2020, cover art looks pretty bad as expected

So is it only going up to the Cell Saga again or beyond? Not a day one purchase either way, fairly certain that's right on top of Yakuza 7s Japanese release, which I'll be importing for sure.

I liked the Spidey cover and I think this looks bad. It just doesn't quite hit that same level of striking minamilism that Spideys cover conveyed.

I'm surprised that they still went to Yamamuro for the cover art. Shintani is right there.
Apparently from what someone can make of (judging from Ajay's comments), it's the "Promo Artist Guy", so not directly Yamamuro, just that he's following his style. He's done a lot of work for Dragon Ball.

But having said that, I'm surprised the Promo Artist didn't do something closer to Shintani's style, especially given we've been getting that type of artwork on some other promotional material.

Ah well.

It has that ugly shiny early DB Super style :(

I thought that after the latest movie success, they'll go with that look for future DB illustrations

This is the most I've been interested in a DBZ game in awhile. I think I'm gonna wait before buying on PS4 though, in hopes the trend continues and it gets an annoyingly late Switch release. Or do we have solid reason to suspect that won't happen this time?

I like it better than the Fighterz one. That one is a mess. While this one is boring, I can at least appreciate the minimalism.

The cover is boring, not terrible, but thats just the norm for Dragon Ball games nowadays. Still looking forward to picking this up though.

Wow, that looks incredibly unappealing. Honestly looks like it would be the cover for one of those bad movie tie-in games with how bland it looks, and honestly, a lot of those cover arts looked better than this does. I don't like how generic-looking the Goku character art is, but I think it's the solid orange background that's really doing me in here. Just feels like a whole lot of nothing going on in this entire cover art.

Day one I thought it would like March or something. I think the game looks like a lot of fun so looking forward to it.

Cover aside, I hope this game’s good. It’s the first time I’ve actually been strongly interested in a Dragonball Z game.

It looks like a fake, but it's on a legit site... o.O look at the tip of the cloud's tail... it's badly edited...

i would have at least put some drafts in the background... like that:

Yup. That's a Kakarot, alright.

Kind of bland, but it's definitely a Goku on the cover of a game about Goku. It's fine. Nothing special, but fine.

Much better than what we got. I'm tired of these lousy ass covers. Spiderman and FighterZ both suck. We need more Nier Automata.

Its not horrible. The simplicity of Goku and Nimbus perfectly shows you what the game is all about. The orange background could be replaced by something like this:

I think this is gonna be the best Dragon Ball game, looks solid Asura's Wrath team is the best choice
I will laugh so hard when it will turn out
disappointing and people will cry about it. But on the other hand, XV still sold despite its shitty gameplay. So this game has a chance.
