The October issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is announcing on Tuesday that Namco Bandai Games will port its 2010 Dragon Ball Heroes arcade card battle adventure game to the Nintendo 3DS system next spring. In Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, the player assembles a deck of five cards for battles. As the player uses the touch stylus to create a card formation on the bottom screen, the battle unfolds on the top screen.
The game will feature over 200 characters and over 800 cards, and a story mode will let the player follow and experience the Dragon Ball story. Players can make full use of the built-in 3DS features to duel with each other wirelessly. Rare cards will be available after the game's release, and V Jump hints that players can also trade cards.
Update: While V Jump says "Spring 2013," Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which comes out one day earlier, says "Winter 2012."
