Dragon Ball Heroes continues to churn out updates as it approaches its fourth anniversary in Japanese arcades. Those wishing to bring the card-based battles home have been stuck either sliding cards around an empty table or fighting it out on the first home port on the Nintendo 3DS, Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission from February 2013. The fight continues on the 3DS today with Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2.
Ultimate Mission 2 is set to include over 2,000 cards and cover the original arcade game’s updates from the very beginning up through the third Ja’aku Ryū Mishion (“JM” or “Evil Dragons Mission”) update. The game’s “Ultimate Universe” mode will take players through the story beginning with Son Goku’s childhood all the way through Dragon Ball GT. The “Scouter Mode” and “Burst Limit Mission” will provide other challenges for players, along with an original story chapter entitled “The Birth of Majin Boo”.
Owners of the first Ultimate Mission will be able to transfer their cards to the new sequel.
Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2 retails for ¥6,145 and is available for order via CDJapan and Play-Asia. The game is also available digitally via the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 3DS is region-locked, however, and the game will require a Japanese system in order to play and access on the eShop.
