Every day something is celebrated. If May 4 was commemorated as Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with You), now it’s Dragon Ball’s turn. Today, May 9, is Goku Day, an ideal time to remember the reason for choosing this date to accommodate the celebrations. It is not that the date is related to any specific event of history, but there is a reason why this particular day has been chosen.
The official website of Dragon Ball explained it in a crystal clear way. Goku Day is an event registered by the Japan Anniversary Association since 2015 (yes, there is an organization that keeps track of anniversaries in Japan). So why May 9? The date and the numbers 5 and 9 may not say anything at first glance, but the truth is that these figures in Japanese are read “Go” ご (five) and “Ku” く (nine)respectively.
Discounts on Dragon Ball games during Goku Day
Looking ahead to Goku Day, there are several video games in the saga at a discount. Dragon Ball Xenoverse, one of the oldest titles, is available for 5 euros on the PlayStation Store. Dragon Ball FighterZ, the award-winning fighting game from Arc System Works, can also be found at very appetizing prices, just like Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. The production of Cyberconnect 2 is a turn-based RPG that encompasses the entire history of the saga from the attack of the Saiyans to the resurrection of the monster Buu.
Bandai Namco is working on a new video game in the saga. Dragon Ball: The Breakers has been conceived as an asymmetric multiplayer title where seven survivors have to survive a great villain, also controlled by a player.
