imageWhenever a new system hits the market its only a matter of time until Namco Bandai makes a Dragon Ball game for it. Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission is different from other games in the series since it’s a "card battle adventure."


Dragon Ball Heroes was originally an arcade game with a playfield like Lord of Vermilion. Players can place a custom team of up to five Dragon Ball heroes on the battlefield for a 5-on-5 brawl. A Capsule Corp hero license keeps track of a player’s win and loss record. The Nintendo 3DS version will have 800 cards, with 200 characters, and include new features.

    I really doubt it but i hope this comes out in the UK  ^^ are these 800 cards in game cards or are they like the arcade game where you have to buy real cards?

  • Herok♞

    Since I am guessing this won’t have an attachment to use the cards you already have, I would love to see it leave Japan.
