As we’ve come to see since its debut in November 2010, the Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game has been rolling right along with new cards and new missions nearly every month, and this month is no exception. The special boss mission featuring Super Baby will be wrapping up shortly on 15 January 2013, which appears to be bringing the “Galaxy Mission 5” two month reign to a close, as “Galaxy Mission 6” (GM6) has been announced to launch nationally in Japan on 17 January 2013. This galaxy mission will be leaving the realm of Dragon Ball GT and returning to a back-story many fans are familiar with: The Saiyans VS The Freeza Army.
The first mission campaign has already been announced, which will be titled the “Giant Growth” campaign and feature bonus Ōzaru transformations for the majority of the Saiyan warriors. The official Dragon Ball Heroes website has also posted a short trailer, and a slightly longer promotional video, giving a brief overview of the new “Galaxy Mission 6”. The promotional video features some beautiful new animation, but also drops a fairly obvious hint around the 2 minute mark that “Birusu”, the “God of Destruction” from the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie, will at some point be making an appearance in the game. While his face is never actually shown, it’s pretty clear who they are hinting at with a glimpse of his legs and the tagline, “That guy in the movie?!” (映画のアイツが！？). It isn’t noted if he will be a playable character in the game, or if his appearance is strictly related to the story. You can watch the promotional video for yourself below:
A new “Giant Growth” ability card for Son Goku will be included in the March issue of V-Jump, which will hit store shelves on 21 January 2013. The issue is also set to include the latest Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie information and a trial sampling of the upcoming “Full Color Comics”. If you’d like to grab a copy of the March issue, it is currently available via CDJapan, Play-Asia, and Amazon Japan.
