"(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

Post by DNA » Thu Feb 24, 2011 9:31 pm

Please keep speculative posts either to yourself or in another thread.

What happened to this game? Has it released yet? Is it part of the cardass series? Is there a full version of the song in the opening? Is it really called "Dragon Soul" as well? Who sings it?

Oh so many questions! :o

At the moment, "DragonBall Heroes" is a Japan-only arcade title that has been released since September 2010, I think. It's technically a cardass title since it uses trading cards, but it's not a sequel in the current Cardass series. If you're really lucky, you might be able to find a DragonBall Heroes arcade cabinet here in the US, but you might have to play with the sample cards due to the actual cards not being released here.

As for the theme song that is heard in the trailers, the song is performed by Takayoshi Tanimoto, who also performed the theme song for Kai. So far, only two trailers have been released, one that debuted on the game's release date based on the Cell games arc (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m1evbeihH4), and one that actually debuted yesterday based on the Buu arc (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPwStGsVUbo).
Forum quote of the moment:

DBZ bootlegs have the movie 9 cover with the pioneer movie 2 description on the back and the disc actually has a Japanese soap opera in MEPG2. :roll:

Oh... yeah it would be quite lucky for me finding it in US, since I live in Europe... <_<
Thanks for the info anyway.

Edit: That new video is great. Is there any version of it without the in-game footage? Like in the first one?

It seems that they are going to introduce SSJ3 Trunks in this game. :roll:

Does SSJ3 poll well or something? Vegeta I get, but Broli and Trunks, you'd think SSJ2 would be a hot feature. What about feasible leaps, like (arguably) a pre-upgraded Gohan or one of the Goku/Vegeta fusions following Gotenks' example. They should certainly be capable of it, being stronger than the younger fighter and having one component who can use the form- both going by some of these games. How would Trunks even find the need, let alone ability, to hit SSJ3 in his world?

In Dragon Ball Heroes we see Trunks fighting Majin Buu, hence the need. I would prefer a Super Saiyan 2 Trunks, but I guess this is kinda cool. Maybe we'll see a Gohan soon as well, it's a Super Saiyan 3 bargain sale!

In other news, I've been checking a few videos, the game is organized by arcs, you've got the Saiyan Arc, which ends with Vegeta Ozaru, and I've seen the Artficial Human Arc, which obviously ends with Cell but it's got all the other guys, including #13 and friends.
There's also Hatchiyack somewhere around there. Another Arc features Bojack and his whole crew, yes, his whole crew appears in the game.

I think this whole Majin Buu deal will be an update for the game in the future, it doesn't seem to be in the game yet.

Yup, that's what the dying Dragon Ball series needs.

Hm, I still question "ability." Two folk actually attain SSJ3- a dead guy and a magically-created gestalt super being. Vegeta, who trains like it's his job and has plenty of power, never pulls it off. So it seems to me to not be something that a Saiyan can just...do... like super states 1 and 2. I know it's just a game, so I'm hoping there's a half-assed yet plausible explanation beyond "look guys, this is badass!"

I would find it lame, but it's Trunks, so it's cool and aewsome. 8)

SSJ3's never been my favorite form, but I guess Trunks would need it if he's going to be fighting Buu.

Man, it sure is a shame that all these new character models will just be wasted on an arcade game. ;)

People need to stop pissing and moaning about levels like this, especially if it's for a card game. They need new forms and gimmicks to sell the series and cards, it's not like they're shoehorning it into canon.

Sure, it's not being "shoehorned" (somewhat retroactively in a magical fashion) into the canonical material, but SSJ3 Broli and Vegeta first showed up in the card games, which led to their inclusion in the video games, which led to figures being made...

It's not just one tiny area -- they bleed into other things.

Does anyone know of a site with a list of the newest Heroes Carddass cards, preferably with images? I've seen the ones on the official website, but they only go up to Cell/Bojack/Hatchiyack. The site updated to introduce the Player Majins, but really doesn't show anything else from the Buu Arc other than Yamu, Spopovich and Fat Buu...

Pissing and moaning? As consumer's of a commercial product, we have just as much of a right to voice our opinions as they have to try to sell it. If we were searing forums with scathing rants and engaging in wiki edit wars that would be one thing, but the brief sound-offs in this thread are not "pissing and moaning."
