The “Prison Planet arc” is the latest scenario featured in the Super Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game, which recently launched the second update in its “Universe Mission” series. Super Dragon Ball Heroes is itself an update and hardware revision to the original Dragon Ball Heroes, a card-based arcade game in which players arrange teammates on a playing field for turn-based battles.
Dragon Ball Heroes, now in its eight year, has seen a variety of multimedia spin-offs and support pieces. Yoshitaka Nagayama’s Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission manga (a follow-up to the previous Dark Demon Realm Mission series) runs in the bimonthly magazine Saikyō Jump, while Toyotaro’s Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission ran from 2012-2015 in V-Jump. Three portable game adaptations — Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, Ultimate Mission 2, and Ultimate Mission X — were released on the Nintendo 3DS.
