‘Super Dragon Ball Heroes’ Gets a Debut Trailer

We’ve only heard a few things about the forthcoming Super Dragon Ball Heroes for Nintendo Switch, but it’s already shaping up to be a pretty solid title. And now we’ve got a first glimpse of it in action, as Bandai Namco of Japan has debuted a new trailer, which you can see above.

The trailer runs about a good two minutes (well, under that with the anniversary logo and all), but it gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from Heroes, including a glimpse at various cards you’ll do within the game.

After showing off a pretty cool logo, we start to get into the gameplay, including a close look at the world you’ll be battling in, as well as some of the characters you’ll be calling upon to do battle with. It looks like it takes place in a virtual arena situated in the city, as well as other locations from the series.

And it’s action packed, with a number of spectacular attacks that users can call upon to unleash on others. The character variety looks to be pretty strong as well, including popular favorites like Goku and Vegeta; as well as a few more obscure characters that we’d love to see duke it out, even with just a few card dealings.

We posted details about the game last week, and here are some of them in case you missed out:

The curtain rises on seven-versus-seven (maximum) card-based battles!

Super Dragon Ball Heroes hasn’t been announced for the West just yet, but it should arrive in Japan sometime in 2019. Knowing Bandai Namco, though, we’ll likely see the game come out here shortly thereafter.
