Piccolo plays a prominent role in the anime, and therefore this game. This is especially true in the early stages of Dragon Ball Z, fighting against Raditz. All you need to do to play as Piccolo is keep playing through the story until you reach Piccolo’s plot. This should come early on in the game, as Piccolo and Raditz come to blows. We don’t want to spoil too much, though, so we won’t go into any more detail than that. Essentially, you should unlock Piccolo as a playable character relatively early in DBZ :Kakarot.
