A celebration fit for a Saiyan, Goku Day is today!

Bandai Namco reminds you to grab your friends and break out your party hats, because May 9 marks Goku Day! An annual tradition since 2015, today’s date in Japanese sounds a bit like the aforementioned character, and the company has released a new video commemorating the event.

Beginning in 2015, the Japan Anniversary Association designated May 9th officially as Goku Day. How did Goku Day fall upon May 9th? The explanation falls upon the Japanese language where the number 5 is pronounced Go and the number 9 is pronounced Ku, put them together and you have GOKU; and thus, Goku Day was born! Goku Day has become a day to celebrate one of the most iconic manga/anime characters to come out of Japan and his positive inspiration and impact on countless fans around the globe.

To celebrate this special day, we’ve prepared a new DRAGON BALL FighterZ Goku Day video for everyone to enjoy!

Check out the video above, read Sean’s review of Dragon Ball FighterZ, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
