Coming back to this, I have to wonder how this will be handled moving forward. I doubt they want to abandon the handheld versions, as they have been selling pretty well. The games have been moderately questionable ports of the original arcade game in terms of graphics and the like though, so I'm curious how they'll try an approach the Super Heroes improvements if they delve into a port of it. Mostly trying to upgrade the graphics and the increased player count on the stage, without increasing the lag.

Honestly, depending on just what the hell it is (as there have been rumors of being both a console and a handheld) and if it's not region locked, Ii wouldn't mind if they saved it for an NX port or something.

Also, with the discussion of Ultimate Mission 2. I still haven't figured out who the Shiru character is supposed to be in the game's supposed story mode, as noted here.

Well, the New 3DS is more powerful than standard 3DS, in terms of processing power I mean. So they could perhaps do a New 3DS exclusive, it wouldn't be the first.

And yes, I also think that that silhouette might be Jelly Vegeta.

It wouldn't be the first (it would be the second...), but it would also potentially alienate a lot of sales by excluding a large portion of the 3DS userbase. The games have been selling pretty well, but I'm not sure they've been selling THAT well that they would have desired numbers on only the New 3DS.

At least if they went with something like the NX (again, depending on what it is) and a small install base at launch or something, there's probably more potential for continued growth.

Considering the two Heroes games on 3DS already have performance problems and this game has improved visuals and more characters on screen I'm betting the next Heroes port will be for the NX handheld.

Man, an adult Goku with the power pole might be over-powered with god ki.

We know Future Trunks can channel ki through his sword, so imagine Goku channeling god ki in the power pole...

I hope so, since I don't take Toei's retelling of the movies as canon and due to Vegeta saying "you're gonna cooperate with me in the next time" in the movie, I see that Vegeta passed through the ritual off-screen. And Dragon Ball Heroes finally showing him would make me satisfied.

Really hoping it's Super Saiyan God Vegeta.

So is that the final Heroes update before Super Dragon Ball Heroes? If so it would make sense for that silhouette to be Copy Vegeta, get one last Super character in before they start adding the Future Trunks arc stuff in Super Dragon Ball Heroes.

The Future Trunks Arc and Demon God Demigra Arc are supposed to be in the next update; GDM9. We don't know what the last update is before Super Heroes starts up, but I don't imagine it will go beyond GDM10.

Ah, okay. I thought they weren't adding the Future Trunks Arc stuff until Super Dragon Ball Heroes.

I honestly think it looks worse than before, because they did was try to pretty up the models from the previous game and it's Budokai 3 batch of resources...which were already terrible looking for a decade now. Polishing resources that rough isn't going to amount to much.

Should have just pulled double duty and upgraded them to the Xenoverse model style or something. Could have benefited both games in the long run.

Xenoverse is too much, I think Burst Limit models are okay, though

I doubt it's Copy-Vegeta, there is barely anything special about him. Super Saiyan God Vegeta though... that's something special that would be making its first appearance.
James Teal (Animerica 1996) wrote:When you think about it, there are a number of similarities between the Chinese-inspired Son Goku and that most American of superhero icons, Superman. Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.

Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.

I don't believe the Xenoverse models would be overkill for a game that's not all that demanding on resources. They were created to run on the PS360 generation, traditionally with 6 characters on the screen at once. There'd be no real reason not to go to with them if the machine's hardware doesn't suck. (Though I admittedly have no idea what's inside the next machine.)
