The Dragon Ball Heroes series kicked off last summer with both the card game and a promotional anime tied into it, which lies firmly outside of the primary Dragon Ball canon. In this game, players star as Beat, who lives in a place called Hero Town, and takes part in World Mission’s meta-game: He wants to be the best in the world at playing the Super Dragon Ball Heroes card game. Turns out that his in-game desires bleed into the real world, bringing the fighting out of the game.
Characters like Goku, Trunks, and Vegeta appear to help Beat out along the way. Unlike the original Super Dragon Ball Heroes game that launched in Japanese arcades last summer, this one definitely leans heavier into the RPG elements. The arcade game uses actual cards to then scan into the virtual game, while this release has zero cards required.
