Namco Bandai Games Japan has today released the first trailer and V-Jump has released the second scan for Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission!

The 3DS card battle game, will be a port of the 2010 Dragon Ball Heroes at Japanese arcades with additional features, including exclusive in-game animation and a new story mode that covers the Saiyan Saga of Dragon Ball Z all the way up Dragon Ball GT! In Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, players assemble a deck of five cards, executing their battle strategy on the the bottom 3DS screen as the battle takes place on the top screen. The game will feature over 100 characters spanning more than 800 digital cards from the Dragon Ball Heroes Series 1 to Galaxy Mission 4. Players will be able to take on friends wirelessly and if you check out the first Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission trailer below, you may see a little teaser tie-in with the 2013 DBZ movie, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission is scheduled to hit Japanese retailers on February 28, 2013 for 5800 yen (around $70 USD). The first batch of games released will also come with a physical bonus card set for use at the arcade version of Dragon Ball Heroes, a hero avatar card, 100-save trial hero license card for the arcade version of the game, and first look at the Future Gohan and Future Trunks cards. There is no word on a North American or European release at this time.

  • Braxton4715

    is that a new raging blast game on the bottom part of the scan it looks awesome

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Does Namco Bandai contain the rights to every anime game? 

  • http://www.saiyanisland.com/ Saiyan

    Pretty much. Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and One Piece are all published by Namco Bandai.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Possibly, I read somewhere that license to produce dbz expires at the end of 2014,
    - edit; I’m wrong it doesn’t effect the games, only the manga, dvd’s and B-rays will stop

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Thank you, that explains so much

  • Ivan Nanita

     That’s Zenkai Battle Royale

  • uchihalord1994

    Why did they stop making raging blast series ? :/ i actually liked it alot ! hell i liked every dragon ball game soo far lol except for this one haha :D  

  • Braxton4715

    oh well it looked like raging blast :P

  • Braxton4715

    hey u replied to one of my comments but i didnt see it

  • Aldridge517

    Oh look, Dimps has been busy. Working on some crappy handheld and NOT MAKING BURST LIMIT 2! >:(

  • supersaiyanbardock

    its Zenkai Battle Royale, there is a chance its going to be ported to PS3/Xbox 360 XD

  • Twice_The_A

    Hopefully the new movie does really well and it doesn’t end by 2014 =D!

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Well its better than not having a DBZ game on 3DS XD

  • Scott Baker

    stfu

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    In which post?

  • DBZNS

    Ive never seen a girl go ssj1

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    lol O_O

  • RibbonsAlmark

    Finally! Some love for my 3DS!

    this game is shit I will the game for ps3.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Have you played it?

  • Scott Baker

    yeah nice scan and all but we rather have info if it will ever be released world wide why post games of info that only japan will ever get its annoying and a waste of time

  • http://twitter.com/Diabloo12 Marco

    Im still hoping a RB3 with GT characters and everything is perfect then! ( I hope )

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    That’s because Akira Toriyama said that he didn’t know how he should make a female SSJ look so he just avoided making one to avoid problems later on. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/JX7CPJR4A433J2N4PVFDQFV3NM Quinton

    stop hating 

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    No they don’t, but they’re starting to license more and more anime since Takara Tomy quit the video game business. 

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    That’s because it’s made by the same company that made both the Budokai Tenkaichi and Raging Blast series, Spike. This game has been out since before Ultimate Tenkaichi so if they decided to make a console version of it, who knows how many more characters will be on the game. 

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    This game has more characters than any DBZ game in history and it’s based on the Budokai 3 engine. If you think that this game is “crappy” just because it’s a handheld than you sir are EXTREMELY closed-minded.

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

     This game will have more GT characters than any DBZ game in history so I don’t see why you wouldn’t just get this

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    I can’t stand how closed-minded people are on this website. Just because this game is a handheld doesn’t automatically mean that it sucks. Watch some gameplay videos before you judge this game dude. I actually think that this game is a great game because it has more characters than any DBZ game in history and it’s based on the budokai 3 engine. Other than the RPG element, Dragon Ball Heroes will be DBZ Budokai 3 with ALOT more characters, giant boss battles, and a new story mode. What is there NOT to like about this game?

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

     So just because this game isn’t for home consoles it’s automatically shit? That’s some great thinking there genius(obvious sarcasm).

  • Braxton4715

    it was on the konoha 11 scan i made a comment about that guy enkitheanunnaki 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    This game looks so sweet. It’s a card battle system, but that’s actually a huge plus for me as it should be a much different experience. And come on, Did you see all those characters? Directly playable or not, being able to use them and see so many new faces with in-game animations from the original Budokai series is spectacular.

    I also want to see that opening movie for the game. It looks to be beyond badass.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I agree. And here I was thinking KH: Dream Drop Distance would it for the platform on my end.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Lol. If he had, then some would have looked like a SSJ3 and Goku would just looked O_O

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    And sonic handhelds, SF x Tekken, and other things you fail to look up. They don’t have the rights to make DBZ games for consoles anymore, they belong now to Spike. So before commenting on something, get your facts straight.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

     Oh that douche.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Nothing, absolutely nothing not to like. People just:

    A. Don’t have a 3DS or don’t like handhelds so they are upset.

    B. Hate change, innovation, or trying something new.

    C. Don’t like strategy card battle games. I happen to love them (played Yu-Gi-Oh for a long time before I quit, both in real life and on the DS as well as some other random games).

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    You liked Ultimate Tenkaichi? I’m as tolerant as can be, but… no, just no. >_<

    Raging Blast has been stale since it was first called Budokai Tenkaichi my friend.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Enough with RB and BT. They are the same crap. Why is everyone so afraid of change?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Argh, she didn’t. If you go frame by frame you’ll see that she never gets the golden hair, just the aura. Damn, and I was so excited after seeing this comment.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Btw, how does the card battle system work anyway?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Btw, the game has SSJ3 Gogeta, look it up on Youtube. S..SJ…3… Gogeta. Nuff said.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    NOOOOOO!! Wtf? The 3DS is region locked? 

    Namco, don’t do what you did with Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butoden and not release it outside Japan. Why so choosy about which DBZ games get released anyway? -_-

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    We need more posts here! New, original, fresh DBZ game (at least for westerners) and half the comments are negative. You have got to be kidding me. Why do people want the same crap over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and… *faints from dizziness*

    *clears throat* Anyway… so I assume a RB3 (Tenkaichi 6) would please you? It got old after the third. >_<

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    yeah they always a find away to mess it all up =/

  • uchihalord1994

    Well… TU was okay! it had some new battle system and it wasn’t tht bad lol what it was messing is *characters. and i dont like the idea of changing the gamestyle of dbz cuz dbz budokai and tenkaichi are the BEST!

  • uchihalord1994

    i know what u mean bro.. and i dont usually judge a game without tryin’ it first ! :/ but this one is too much dude !!! i mean c’mon a card game ??  and dbz ??? o.o xD its just redicioulos 

  • uchihalord1994

    im not hatin’ -.- 

  • uchihalord1994

    There are card games for a lot of things my friend.

  • http://twitter.com/Diabloo12 Marco

    yeah to bad :/ I played DBZ kai UT on a emulator but you dont have a 3ds emulator for this =(

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Do they have a Twitter? A request page? Something where you can get in contact with them and they’ve affirmed that they are taking suggestions?

    I’m not naive enough to believe it will make a difference, but I have to try.

  • http://twitter.com/Diabloo12 Marco

    cuz its only in japan ( I have a 3ds so I will buy it if it was here =) )

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Some names that have never appeared in a DBZ game that have been confirmed playable (based on arcade version, since it was stated they are adding more characters I assume the ones already in will stay. Will update if I find more confirmations):

    Yamu (Spopovich’s partner)
    GT Trunks
    Trunks (SSJ3)
    Bardock (SSJ)
    Chilled
    Broly (Bio)
    Dr Myuu
    Gogeta (SSJ3)

    Lord Slug henchman:

    Wings 
    Commander Zeeon 

    Bojack henchmen:

    Kogu 
    Bido

    Unique Saiyan (male, SSJ)
    Unique Saiyan (female)

    Gt is fuckin epic!1 at least dimps has love for it lol so many characters ina 3DS game amazing

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    lol, funneist thing happend in Budokai 3 HD when I was playing against my cousin Ali yesterday, I was using King Piccolo costume and he was using Teen Gohan he went to ssj2 and I went close to him and used Destructive wave and it missed and kept spamming it, it went above his head used it twice again it went above his head again, ROFLMFAO, I can see why people always use short characters to win in the tournament O_O

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Because DBZ will ALWAYS BE AWESOME, and make good amount of money except DBZ kinect, that game sucks

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Golden Spirit Bomb, now this I have to see, say have you got a PS3, if yes want to add me?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    If the game comes, with no release date for the U.S., and through youtube videos i can’t resist… I may end up purchasing a Japanese 3DS… I hate myself for saying this, but the game looks to have 10′s of hours of gameplay with so many characters they can pretty much go through everything in the DBZ story mode, then it also has online? There could be over 100 hours depending upon how competitive it is. It just almost seems so worth it.

    Might take a while to save up. But I’m really psyched about this game for some reason. I’m a strategist at heart, like Shikamaru, so I can’t resist something so strategy oriented that incorporates so many of my favorite characters. *I hate myself*

  • Aldridge517

    I didn’t fail to look up anything, I’m talking about Dragon Ball Z, not Sonic, not Street Fighter. And Spike doesn’t own the rights to DBZ games. Check YOUR facts before you fail at life.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    “Busy. Working on crappy handheld..” They’ve been BUSY on other things as well is my point. Smh.

    Not GAMES nimrod, CONSOLE games, as in anything not a handheld or arcade. It’s the same concept with the NUNS series. Ubisoft gave up their  exclusive rights to make Naruto games for the 360, so CC2 decided to make Storm a multiplatform game by picking it up. 

    Spike has (or had, supposedly UT was supposed to be the last though then came Kinect) EXCLUSIVE rights to DBZ console games. Where the hell have you been the last few years?

    Dimps gave up their rights and Namco Bandai simply passed them on to Spike. Now if Namco chooses and Dimps accepts, they can take it back. But at the moment they are making more money co-working on SF games.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Sure. PSN: Birth_By_Sorrow. 

    I don’t currently play any online games, but if I get one before, or end up picking up NUNS3 I’d be happy to challenge you if you have it as well. ^_^

  • Aldridge517

    1. Gameplay is more important than character roster. Saying a game has a lot of characters conveys absolutely nothing about the game itself. 
    2. This game uses Budokai 3′s 8 year old character models, it DOES NOT play anything like Budokai 3.I don’t think this game is “crappy” because it’s a handheld, I said it’s crappy because it’s throwaway; irrelevant, of little to no concern, here today and gone tomorrow. This game isn’t a 3DS standout, it’s not going to earn critical acclaim, no one in the gaming community is going to play this and say, “This is the greatest 3DS game I’ve ever seen.” So yes, I call this game “crappy” (something I have no interest in and no emotion towards whatsoever).

  • Aldridge517

    Sure, 3DS players need love too Lol

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I am not sure if that comment is sarcasm lol O_O

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    lol haha ye[, when i face piccolo in b3 he has a habit of doing that move over and over lol

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    You use the cards to unlock characters, choose where you want to place your characters, attack, block, and counter. For super specials and ultimates, just like Budokai 3 you have to fill up a meter and it must fill up higher than your opponent’s meter for it to be successful with the push of a button next to the touch screen where you place your cards. All of this is from the arcade version though, in the 3DS version instead of using cards you will be using your 3DS stylus since all of the card characters will be on the game already.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Thanks, appreciate it. Sounds like like a mix of RPG and Strategy elements.

  • Braxton4715

    lol yea

  • http://twitter.com/Diabloo12 Marco

    goodluck!

  • Rayson

    Would you guys rather have a 3ds dbz game or ps3 and xbox360 dbz game cuz this bs and that kincet bs is just annoying 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    finally another GT fan like me =D

  • uchihalord1994

    Exactly! TwT lol 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    How about both? I wasn’t aware that two DBZ games couldn’t exist simultaneously. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Seriously? No, i only have been saying that since… forever about Naruto.

    Gameplay is everything. So what exactly is wrong with the gameplay? Have you seen it? 

    It’s not a fighting game, it’s a card battle strategy game, so to judge it based on your presumptions on what a DBZ game SHOULD be is ignorant. It should be judged based on it’s individual genre, not it’s subject matter. And from what I gather (actually having done… you know… research) the game is decently deep and incorporates exactly what you’d expect out of a game like this, and is much flashier to boot.

    I.e., for the genre it represents, it is a deep and well crafted game. It has existed in Japan in arcade form since 2005 with regular updates. When you have 7 years of constant updates (the equivalent of 7 years of new DLC) you tend to perfect it my friend.

    Now they are taking everything they’ve done and putting it onto a handheld. And if you took the time to look up what exactly that is, you’d be surprised to find out how much content is in this game, more then enough for over 100 hours of gameplay between unlocking characters, cards, story mode, and online play. 

    The fact that you use graphics as an excuse makes me just feel sorry for you. Such a shallow mindset for someone who claims to value “gameplay.” Hypocrisy also comes to mind.

    You don’t like strategy games, fine. But bashing it as having poor gameplay because it’s not your cup of tea, or because it’s a DBZ game that isn’t a fighting game, is not only ignorant… well actually it is only ignorant. Very, VERY, ignorant.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    @uchihalord1994:disqus It has good gameplay, it’s been out since 2005 in Japanese arcades and so you can easily assess it. It’s a strategy game. That is just your opinion because you don’t enjoy strategy games. But some people do, and they can be very deep and engaging (mostly of the mind).

    @Marco Yeah, I’m pissed. I don’t want to get excited over a game I have very little chance of ever playing (idiotic region lock, first time Nintendo has done this too) but… hey what you can do?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004263002383 Hiago Nunes

    I agree but there lot of other animes and mangas to do games

  • Aldridge517

    “”Busy. Working on crappy handheld..” They’ve been BUSY on other things as well is my point. Smh.”I don’t care about your point, nor do I care about the other things they’ve been doing. Why? I’ve already told you, I’m talking about DRAGON BALL Z. I never said Dimps hasn’t made a game since Burst Limit, I didn’t even imply it, YOU DID. You took the liberty of making your own assumptions and jumping to your own conclusions about what I meant by my comment. Your baseless assumption was FALSE. All I said was that they’ve been busy, PERIOD.

    “Are you so narrow minded that you can’t fathom a deep, turn based card strategy game”
    It’s called personal preference. There’s nothing “deep”, nor has there ever been anything deep about a turn based card game.

    “Do you dislike RPGs because they are mostly turn based and brand that terrible gameplay out of your own biased opinion?”
    There you go making uninformed, false assumptions again. I never said anything that would lead you to believe that I dislike RPGs or turned based gameplay, you manufactured those assumptions and drew them out of thin air.

    “It’s not a fighting game, it’s a card battle strategy game, so to judge it based on your presumptions on what a DBZ game SHOULD be is ignorant.”
    Another false assumption, I have no presumptions of what a DBZ game SHOULD be.

    “And from what I gather the game is decently deep”
    Your opinion, not mine.

    “Now they are taking everything they’ve done and putting it onto a handheld. And if you took the time to look up what exactly that is, you’d be surprised to find out how much content is in this game, more then enough for over 100 hours of gameplay”
    100 hours of gameplay in a video game that I doesn’t care about isn’t “surprising”, it’s useless information.

    “The fact that you use graphics as an excuse makes me just feel sorry for you. Such a shallow mindset for someone who claims to value “gameplay.”"
    Still making false assumptions? At this point you might want to seek personal help, I would tell you I feel sorry for your unhealthy mental state but whatever… I didn’t use graphics as an “excuse”, I was stating facts to set the record straight, this game uses Budokai 3′s character models but it doesn’t play like Budokai 3.

    Now Alex, I would appreciate it if you’d take your adolescent passive aggression elsewhere.
