Dragon Ball Super’s English dub fans are currently in the midst of the Resurrection of F Arc, however, the cast for the upcoming Universe 6 Arc has already been announced. In addition, Funimation has revealed that Hit will no longer be voiced by Aaron Roberts, with Mathew Mercer being his replacement.
Roberts was the originally the man behind the voice of Hit in the recent Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 game and it was assumed by many fans that he would retain the position. However, Roberts has been replaced by Mercer, who is known for his work as Levi in Attack on Titan and Trafalgar Law from One Piece.
Hit will be one of many new Universe 6 characters to be introduced in the next Arc of Dragon Ball Super, with Hit being the team’s ace fighter. Hit will join Cabba, Botamo ,Frost, Vados, Champa and Magetta.
In the next Arc, fans will see a dispute between the Gods of Destructions from both twin Universes 6 and 7. The dispute will lead to a tournament between both universes where the winner will receive the Super Dragon Balls.
The Super Dragon Balls are planet-sized orbs that are spread out between both Universes 6 and 7. Unlike the Namekian or earth Dragon Balls, they have no wish limitations and they were the original Dragon Balls that the Namekians used to inspire their Dragon Balls from.
Hit will play a vital role in the upcoming Arc and will push Goku to a new level, as Universe 6’s Champa wants Universe 7’s earth. Currently Dragon Ball Super is in the Universal Survival Arc, with the English dub being behind, however, Hit is still playing a vital role in the Tournament of Power.
