Shueisha and online retailers have listed an 07 November 2019 release date and ¥1,250 + tax price tag for a forthcoming Super Dragon Ball Heroes: 9th Anniversary Super Guide.

The 2019 book follows two previous anniversary guide books: the 8th Anniversary Super Guide book in November 2018 and the 5th Anniversary Mission book in November 2015. Each book covers card additions, ongoing storylines, interviews with production staff, and more. The 5th anniversary book in particular contained the 29th (and thus fast last) chapter of Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission manga series.

Information and interviews from the 8th anniversary book were covered on Episode #0462 of our podcast.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes is 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 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, which also recently re-started) currently runs in Shueisha’s bimonthly Saikyō Jump magazine, while Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission ran from 2012-2015 in Shueisha’s monthly V-Jump magazine. Three portable game adaptations — Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, Ultimate Mission 2, and Ultimate Mission X — were released on the Nintendo 3DS. A fourth home version, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, launched on the Nintendo Switch and PC on 04 April 2019 and internationally 05 April 2019.

This November marks the Dragon Ball Heroes series’ overall ninth anniversary, with a special live event set to be held 27 October 2019 with (Son Goku, et al.) and Takeshi Kusao (Trunks), along with the premiere of the promotional anime’s seventeenth episode. The “Universe Mission 11” update for the arcade game is scheduled to launch 07 November 2019 in Japan.
