Dragon Ball Card Game IMG1

Towards the end of October, an issue of V-Jump revealed Bandai Namco would be releasing another Dragon Ball title on the Switch in 2019. This one is a bit different from the usual offerings, as it's actually a card game by Dimps Corporation. At the time of the reveal, there was no mention of a release outside of Japan.

In the latest development, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission has now been rated by the Australian Classification Board, receiving a rating of PG (for parental guidance). The classification reconfirms the developer is Dimps and publisher is Bandai Namco, and suggests a western announcement is on the cards (pun intended).

As explained in Japanese manga magazine V-Jump, World Mission includes more than 1,160 cards - covering Super Dragon Ball Heroes 1 to 8 and Universe Mission 1 and 2 (previously released on the 3DS). There are also over 350 characters from the Dragon Ball series to fight with. Super Dragon Ball Heroes is based on the original arcade version, which is a two-screen design. The Switch release will include seven-verse-seven card battles with multiplayer as well. Not long ago, a teaser trailer (see below) was also uploaded, providing the first glimpse of the game.
