Bandai Namco has announced that its arcade game, Super Dragon Ball Heroes, is getting an anime tie-in. While information regarding its distribution method and length remains unclear, the first episode will debut in Japan on July 1st at the Aeon LakeTown in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture.

The anime’s official website provides a story synopsis:

Super Saiyan 4 Goku vs SSGSS Goku?! A super battle unfolds on the unknown “Prison Planet”!

Trunks returns from the future to train with Goku and Vegeta. However, he abruptly vanishes. The mystery man “Fu” suddenly appears, telling them that Trunks has been locked up on the “Prison Planet”, a mysterious facility in an unknown location between universes. The group searches for the Dragon Balls to free Trunks, but an unending super battle awaits them! Will Goku and the others manage to rescue Trunks and escape the Prison Planet…?

This mysterious Fu previously appeared in the now retired Dragon Ball Online MMO, before showing up again in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 video game.

The Dragon Ball Heroes arcade games debuted in Japan in 2010. Utilizing TCG gameplay, fans are able to assemble their dream team of characters. As time has gone on, the game has added what-if scenarios before eventually moving into original material. In 2016, the game was renamed to Super Dragon Ball Heroes in accordance with an significant content upgrade and new visual enhancements. Parts of this storyline have found its way to Japan-only Nintendo 3DS video games. The games have inspired a number of manga series, as well as animated promotional videos.
