Dragon Ball fans have been able to experience the franchise in many ways as the series released an anime, video games, and even a film focused on Dragon Ball Super coming later this year.
The most intriguing new project is Dragon Ball Legends, which not only added a brand new Saiyan to the series but a mysterious new swordsman as well. Thanks to some newly released information, fans now know a little more about this new addition.
The new swordsman, introduced in the first trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball Legends, is named Zahha. According to Shueisha's official character description for the character, Zahha is a "magic swordsman who was sent here by space-time confusion. Despite his icy demeanor, he steps in to aide our hero." He'll be voiced by Ryotaro Okiayu.
Zahha's design is great as well as this swordsman seems to be able to fight while a floating sword stands at his side. The series has not had such a swordsman in the past, and with a design from series creator Akira Toriyama, Zahha seems to be an intriguing addition to the franchise.
The game revealed descriptions for two other characters as well such as the mysterious new Saiyan Shallot, who has forgotten memories of his past, and a mysterious "Hooded Man" who "seems" to resemble the new Saiyan Shallot.
Dragon Ball Legends is currently being prepped for a release on iOS and Android devices sometime this Summer. More information about the game, and this new Saiyan will hopefully be revealed within the coming weeks.
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.
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.
