This week’s upcoming May 2014 issue of V-Jump — officially due out 20 March 2014 — is announcing Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2 for the Nintendo 3DS, set for release later this year in 2014.
The game is thus far advertised to include all missions up through at least the current JM3 iteration. It will surpass its predecessor in terms of both graphical quality and the amount of content, including a brand-new “Adventure Mode”, as well as an “Ultimate Mission” where the player has a finite number of cards and is not allowed to play the same one twice. Players will also be able to retain all the cards they obtained in the first game, although how this will be accomplished has yet to be revealed.
The first Ultimate Mission — released back in February 2013 — covered up through the early “Galaxy Mission” updates of the original arcade version of Dragon Ball Heroes. Over an entire half-year, the game swayed in and out of the Famitsu and Media Create top-selling games charts with reliable, if not consistent, sales figures. The game was not released outside of Japan.
The May 2014 issue of V-Jump is available at sites such as CDJapan and will come packed with additional Dragon Ball news as well as a Super Saiyan 3 Vegetto card for the arcade version of Dragon Ball Heroes.
Time to get a 3DS then. Oh wait.. Awesome Games like these won’t swash over to the US or the EU. Better wait for the next dated and rehashed Beat ’em Up..
I’m so with you on this one. Then again, I haven’t seen a DBZ game that actually made me want to buy it since 2010’s DB Origins 2, so… This one looks kinda cool, but not *that* cool, and with japanese-only and region-locking… forget it.
There are so many good Japan-only games being released right now… like Digimon Adventure for example. The PSP isn’t region locked, so that won’t be a problem, but a japanese-only RPG… well, I’ll be able to play it in another two years or so when I’ve studied some more japanese.
I can’t wait to not be able to play this game because Namco Bandai doesn’t like localizing these kinds of titles for the West. No, I’m not bitter, why do you ask?
There’s a few games, including the first Ultimate Mission, that have almost tempted me into buying a Japanese 3DS, but I think this might just do it.
Here’s hoping I don’t have to, and in the months to come a new easy and risk-free way to circumvent region locking comes to light.
Everyone who’s hesistant yet, then I recommend you to buy Japanese 3DS.
It has giant entertainment value and Demos are releasing weekly for it. Even if you can’t speak Japanese, you will still be able to find a lot of easy-to-play never-localized games.
