Today during Tokyo Game Show, Bandai Namco released a new Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot trailer, revealed the game's collector's edition, and confirmed when the title will release in the west. The new trailer, which can be peeped at the top of the article, is specifically a Buu Arc teaser. Meanwhile, the game will be releasing in the west one day after it does in Japan, meaning it will hit PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 17, 2020. Not included in this large information and media dump was word of a Nintendo Switch port, which looks unlikely at this point, at least for launch.
Bandai Namco also detailed that the game will be available in different editions: a Deluxe edition, an Ultimate Edition, a Standard Edition, and a Collector's Edition. The latter includes not only the game, but an exclusive diorama figure, a hardcover art book, and a collectible steelbook. Bandai Namco also noted a Season Pass will made available at some point. This will presumably come with the more expensive editions of the game. Pre-orders for the standard edition are live on Amazon with a 17% discount. Odds are the Collector's Edition will go live via that link soon. In the meantime, it's available to pre-order via Best Buy.
