DBZ: Kakarot Producer Ryosuke Hara detailed one of his favorite side quests, saying:
My personal favorite would be a side-episode focusing on Gohan and Android 16. Here, you will discover the connection that Gohan and Android 16 had before the fight against Cell. So I’m sure playing this side-story, will bring even more emotion when Gohan evolves into Super Saiyan 2.
