A four-year anniversary stream for Dragon Ball Heroes took place earlier today, and while a focus was indeed put on the “Super Saiyan 4 Broli Explosive Birth Festival” to show off the newly-upgraded villain, the main takeaway from the event was the future of Dragon Ball Heroes itself.
YouTube user “pontaosu” captured a video of the new promotional video for the upcoming JM7 (Ja’aku Ryū Mishon 7 / “Evil Dragon Mission 7”) update, which showcases Super Saiyan 4 Broli against the avatar heroes and series heroes, along with a special appearance from a cloaked Paikuhan at the end.
As promised, the event included a special feature looking ahead to the future of Dragon Ball Heroes. Another pre-produced video recapped the on-going “JM” update series, which will have two more updates: JM7 in November, and JM8 in January 2015, presumably to wrap-up the Dragon Ball GT-oriented aspects of the game.
A “new series” — or rather, a new batch of updates, presumably under a new overarching name (a la “Galaxy Mission” and “Evil Dragon Mission”) — will hit later in 2015. The teaser concludes with a shadowy figure who appears to be none other than Bardock in his Time Breaker / mind-control outfit from Dragon Ball Online. With Time Patrol Trunks already making an appearance in Dragon Ball Heroes, it appears that the card-based arcade game will be going into material from Dragon Ball Online — the now-defunct online multiplayer role-playing game — full force alongside the upcoming Dragon Ball XENOVERSE console game, also hitting in early 2015.
Thanks to “pontaosu” on YouTube as well as “TheDevilsCorpse” on our own forum for staying as on top of things as ever!
