Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission will receive a physical release on Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe, as confirmed by separate Amazon listings. Dragon Ball Heroes is a Japanese trading card game for arcades that has existed since 2010 and then expanded to 3DS iterations. And even though few have heard of it overseas, the game has grossed hundreds of millions of dollars so far.
The game will include at least 1,160 cards and 350 characters, and the combat involves teams of seven versus seven. The story sounds like a bunch of silly nonsense involving the Time Patrol (the same group seen in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2), but the point of this silly setup is to let them tell the craziest, fan fiction-y stories possible. In fact, a small Super Dragon Ball Heroes anime exists, and it dreams up amazing scenarios like throwing Super Saiyan Blue and Super Saiyan 4 into the same place. It all sounds like great nerdy fun to me.
Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission will release for Switch and PC on Apr. 5, 2019. Will you be buying it? Or are you content to stick with FighterZ and the new inclusion of Jiren, who is now confirmed for the game? Let us know!
