Super Dragon Ball Heroes made a big outing in 2018 when the series released its own anime miniseries. Now, it seems the show will continue into the new year, and the promotional anime’s next arc will bring in a fan-favorite character.
Yes, Jiren is ready to come back to the small screen, and fans are ready to see what the Pride Trooper is up to.
Recently, Super Dragon Ball Heroes released the synopsis for its next arc. January 2019 will begin the ‘Universal Conflict’ arc, but it was the story’s poster that confirmed a certain someone would take part.

As you can see above, the new arc’s key visual features Jiren up front with Son Goku. The Saiyan is powered up in his Ultra Instinct form, but Jiren looks cool as usual. Dressed in his Pride Trooper uniform, Jiren seems plenty calm, but fans know it is only a matter of time before the Universe 11 fighter begins to sweat.
So far, there is no telling what part Jiren will have in this new arc, but fans expect the fighter to be on Goku’s side this time. When the Pride Trooper debuted earlier in 2018, it was in light of the ‘Universal Survival’ arc. Dragon Ball Super pitted Goku against Jiren, giving the hero a true rival with some really formidable power. Jiren was able to easily take down fighters like Vegeta and Hit before Goku could touch him with Ultra Instinct, so fans are curious to see how this miniseries reunion will treat the former opponents. After all, Jiren was gunning for a rematch by the end of Dragon Ball Super, so maybe this new arc will grant the fighter’s wish.
You can read the first synopsis of the anime's next arc below:
“Trunks, Vegeta, and the others have escaped from the Prison planet. Before they can even recover from their wounds, they receive word that Universe 6 is under attack. What lies in wait for Vegeta and the others as they rush into Universe 6 to defeat a completely unknown enemy? Fierce battles between each universes’ strongest warriors are set to unfold as the curtain rises on the ‘Universal Conflict’ arc!”
