Dragon Ball Super is keeping busy with its Saiyans, but fans are just biding their time until Goku gets to fight Jiren once more. The pair went head-to-head earlier this month in an epic battle, but Goku did not leave the skirmish as a victor. The Saiyan has plenty to prove when he challenges the Universe 11 warrior to a rematch, and fans can an idea of how the fight will go thanks to Super Dragon Ball Heroes 7.
Not long ago, the upcoming game released its entire opening animation. The clip, which can be see above, begins with a very familiar scene. Goku is seen facing opposite of Jiren, but the hero has his Gi torn now. When the Saiyan powers up, he is able to enter the Ultra Instinct state at will as a white-blue aura surrounds him.
When Jiren rushes forward, the pair engage in battle. The two fighters are seen throwing a flurry of punches before a close-up of Goku comes in. The hero is seen throwing one last punch before the opening moves to cover a different storyline for the Dragon Ball game.
While Super Dragon Ball Heroes isn’t considered a canon part of the franchise, the title have been known to preview bits of the anime. The opening scene here was created by developers who are aware of how Dragon Ball Super’s rematch will go, and several of Goku’s previous fights have been teased in video game cutscenes before. The clips may not always be a direct replica, but fans can still use the footage as a guide for what may come.
If this Super Dragon Ball Heroes footage is correct, then it looks like Goku really will battle Jiren with his Gi nearly torn away. The hero is also seen easily entering his Ultra Instinct state, so Goku may get to test out the state a few more times before he takes on Jiren once more. The Saiyan seems to be at ease with the transformation when compared to his first go-around, and that can only mean bad things are in store for the Pride Trooper in round two.
