Controls Guide for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot Controls

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot takes you through the life of the series’ main character, Goku, and goes through the major arcs of the Dragon Ball Z anime. You can play the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC. Depending on where you play the game, you’re going to have a different control scheme, but it should feel pretty close to the other consoles.

Xbox One

The control scheme should feel pretty solid and resemble most fighting games with the face buttons handling the main fighting, the triggers prompting special attacks and blocks, and the thumbsticks controlling movement. The controls are broken up into battle and field. You use the battle controls during combat, and the field controls are what you use while exploring the world.
