The new film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is basically upon us at this point, but that is not stopping all of Shueisha’s magazines from tossing out a few last tidbits about and in conjunction with the movie. Today’s issue of V-Jump does just that, and — in addition to the latest chapter of Victory Mission — ties in a few items with Dragon Ball Heroes, as well.
Though last month’s issue came with a special QR code that unlocked six Super Saiyan character cards in Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission on the Nintendo 3DS, this month’s issue contains a QR code that opens up a mission with Birusu, God of Destruction, from the upcoming film. It also works together with the regular Dragon Ball Heroes arcade unit: you can choose from four mission types that work together with it, and get another QR code. If you read that with your scouter, you can get a mission against yet another super-strong enemy.
The magazine also includes a tiny character design sheet for Birusu, noting how “unexpectedly cute” he is, and that while he is a fearsome god, his cat-like gestures and his variety of facial expressions makes him not just a “bad guy”.
“Super Saiyan God” is also given a more formal-reveal: “With flames burning in his red hair and eyes, it’s the mightiest warrior in history!!!” The magazine notes, however, that you will have to see the God’s true power at the theater for yourself.
The May 2013 issue of V-Jump is available for purchase at CDJapan and Amazon Japan. This month’s issue is jam-packed with this information, the seventh chapter of Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, the new “Akira Toriyama Special Interview“, and more.
