The game’s official website notes that using the additional songs will restrict the sharing/capture functionality in the Nintendo Switch edition of the game (similar to its implementation in other games on other consoles), and that the songs will only be available in certain game areas and modes. The announcement currently covers just the Japanese release of the game; the equivalent content packs for other games have received international releases in the past, however.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, developed by Dimps for Bandai Namco, is a home version of the ongoing Super Dragon Ball Heroes card-based arcade game in Japan. Due out 04 April 2019 in Japan and 05 April 2019 internationally, World Mission will see a release on the Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam) covering the eight base “Super Dragon Ball Heroes” missions and first two “Universe Mission” series updates. The game is set to feature an original story with Shiirasu, an antagonist with the Galatic Patrol insignia who arrives at the Time Nest speaking of “justice” to Trunks and the Kaiōshin of Time. Designed by Toyotarō, the character’s official “English” name spelling has been revealed as “Sealas”; the name in Japanese is likely a play on whitebait, fitting alongside other, similar Galactic Patrol-related names.

World Mission follows three Dragon Ball Heroes games released on the Nintendo 3DS. The most recent entry was Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission X in April 2017; the game covered 3,300 cards from the arcade version’s original 8 missions, 10 “Galaxy Missions”, 8 “Evil Dragon Missions”, and 10 “God Missions”, effectively encompassing all content pre-Super Dragon Ball Heroes in its own original story mode in addition to the arcade version’s mission structure. Outside of a single test run at San Diego Comic Con last year, no Dragon Ball Heroes content has ever received an international/localized release outside of Japan up to this point.

The North American Nintendo Switch edition of Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is available for pre-order on Amazon; digital pre-orders have yet to go live.
