“Dragon Ball Heroes” Galaxy Mission 9 Preview
Published by 22 June 2013, 9:38 PM EDT

While the Nintendo 3DS port (which covers up through “Galaxy Mission 4”) continues strong well into its fourth month since release, the original arcade version of Dragon Ball Heroes is staying strong with its “Galaxy Mission 9” update hitting Japan 11 July 2013, previewed in the August 2013 issue of V-Jump released yesterday in Japan.

One mission presents you with two stages: Present and Future. In “Present” you face off against #16, #17, #18, and Cell. If you beat the stage, you get a special support part that will add 2000 battle power and 2000 HP to your team in the second round. In the “Future” stage, which is under the control of the Artificial Humans, you face off against #13, #14, and #15 (from Dragon Ball Z Movie 7) in addition to #17 and #18, with help from the future versions of both Gohan and Trunks. If you win the “Future” stage, you will receive special support parts that recover 25% of your team’s Ki and adds 2 to your team’s Hero Energy in the second round.

If you beat both of these stages, you can access the Hell stage where you fight alongside Super Saiyan 3 future Gohan and Trunks to break out of Hell.

There are also three new Hero Avatars, a first for the “Galaxy Mission” series:

  • Artificial Human Avatar: Berserker Type (looks like a Cell Jr.)
  • Artificial Human Avatar: Elite Type (dressed like #19 and #20)
  • Artificial Human Avatar: Hero Type (dressed like #17)

The new avatars work in conjunction with the new Card Action Ability: Double from “Galaxy Mission 9”, which adds secondary effects that vary depending on the type of avatar you and your partner have. The Card Action Ability is found in all eight of the “Galaxy Mission 9” campaign cards, with Super 17 being the highlight.


There will also be a special (and as-of-yet unrevealed) card included in the next (September 2013, releasing 21 July 2013) issue of V-Jump in Japan. The August 2013 issue of Saikyō Jump (releasing 04 July 2013) will have a Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta card (with “Garlic Blazer” technique and Card Action Ability: Z from “Galaxy Mission 7”).


Dragon Ball Heroes shows absolutely no signs of slowing down!
