A brief teaser released last Friday indicates material related to the Dragon Ball Super: Broly theatrical film is making its way to Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission courtesy of a new update “coming soon”:

Cards featuring characters from the film originally debuted in the Super Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game’s “Universe Mission 5” update in November 2018. Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission currently covers the eight base missions from the Super Dragon Ball Heroes upgrade as well as the first two “Universe Mission” updates.

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, released 04 April 2019 in Japan and 05 April 2019 internationally, on the Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam). The game features 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 adjusted 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 prior 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. Ultimate Mission X (and Ultimate Mission 2 before it) received extended support through free (albeit minor) updates.

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 until World Mission‘s release.

The North American Nintendo Switch edition of Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is available for order on Amazon or the Nintendo eShop, while the PC edition is available via Steam.
