New Information Drops Regarding 'Dragon Ball's Newest Saiyan

Dragon Ball's Saiyans are some of the most interesting additions to the series as each new Saiyan that emerges often draws a lot of attention given that each new Saiyan could have the potential to be as strong as Goku or Vegeta.

Although the anime series has ended, the franchise has introduced a new Saiyan for the Dragon Ball Legends mobile game, and thanks to one Twitter user, fans now have a clear look at the new Saiyan as well as get new information.

Dragon Ball Legends is a game coming to iOS and Android phones that sets a new player character against the foes introduced throughout the series. Along with a newly designed armor set (which resembles the kind of armor Cabba wears in Universe 6), the new Saiyan, named "Shallot," is taking fans by storm.

Along with the slot in the leather armor to allow the yet unnamed Saiyan's tail to flourish, this new Saiyan has confirmed that this new character has been designed by Akira Toriyama. Much like Android 21 in Dragon Ball FighterZ, the staff from Dragon Ball Legends came to Toriyama with their ideas and he designed the new character accordingly.

The design of the new Saiyan, along with the released story tidbit that the new warrior comes from a long time ago, a time before Goku and company, has fans even thinking that this new Saiyan just may be connected with the time traveling foe of the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie.

But whether or not these connections come to pass is still up in the air, a new Saiyan design and character is still an exciting prospect.

For those who weren't lucky enough to get into the first beta, a second testing phase will be opened from April 13-16. This second beta will support three times the number of players with 30,000 beta participants being accepted, though a new application process will require players to apply once again for the beta.

Dragon Ball Legends is expected to be released sometime this summer.

Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m. It is also available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video. The Japanese language release of the series is complete, and available to stream on FunimationNOW, VRV, and Crunchyroll.

If you want to catch up with the English dub, the first 52 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are now available to stream on FunimationNOW, VRV, and available to purchase on Amazon Video as well. The 52 episodes span the full range of what has aired in the North America and covers the "Battle of Gods" arc, "Revival of F" arc, the "Universe 6" arc, and bringing the series right up to the current TV airings of the "Future Trunks" arc.


Funimation has previously announced the rest of the series will soon be available on the service as well. Releasing in 13 episode batches two weeks after the last episode airs on Cartoon Network, fans of Dragon Ball Super's English dub without a cable connection now have a way to experience the series.

The first Dragon Ball Super film is set to release this December in Japan, and it has just released its first trailer. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan. Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and character designs.
