Even though flying might be cool in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, vehicles are a great way to get around the game while enjoying the scenery. Also, they can be used to participate in the various race events in the Dragon Ball Z world.
However, Goku only has access to the Flying Nimbus during the early parts of the game. There are other restrictions as well on the types of vehicles that are usable. The limits are lifted once a player completes enough of the story to reach the Android Saga, which occurs after Trunks’ warning of the incoming Androids.
One of the tasks during this period of the story will be to speak to Bulma, the scientist and second daughter of Capsule Corporation’s founder Dr. Brief. The conversation will unlock the research and development system, which allows players to build robots and vehicles. Other features include customizing and upgrading existing machinery.
Through this unlocked system, players can now request Bulma to build them a variety of vehicles as long as they have the right materials. This includes the Hover Car, which is required to participate in the world’s racing events.
