FUNimation Entertainment began streaming English-subtitled versions of promotional videos for Dragon Ball Super's "Universe Survival Saga" on Wednesday. The first video recaps previous story arcs before showing a preview of the new arc. Goku narrates the second video.

The anime's site describes the arc's story:

According to an invitation that Goku gets, Zen-Oh is starting a martial arts tournament between all the universes called "Chikara no Taikai" (Tournament of Power). But it is the beginning of universal destruction. Something awaits the winners and losers of this tournament. What will become of this fierce team battle between each universe's elite warriors?

The new arc will debut on February 5. Kiyoshi Hikawa is performing the new opening theme song as his first anime tie-in song. Yukinojo Mori wrote the lyrics for the rock number "Genkai Toppa x Survivor" (Limit Breakthrough x Survivor), and Takafumi Iwasaki composed the music.

The visual for the arc shows Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Krillin, Android 17, Android 18, Piccolo, Tenshinhan, Master Roshi, and Majin Buu as Universe 7's most powerful team.

The FunimationNow, Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab streaming platforms are all simulcasting the series with English subtitles.

Toonami Asia premiered the series in Southeast Asia and India on January 21 with a different English dub produced by Bang Zoom! Entertainment. Toei Animation announced in October that the anime will begin airing in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa between fall and winter.
