February V-Jump Dragon Ball XENOVERSE Scans

New content for Dragon Ball XENOVERSE is to be featured in the February 2015 issue of V-Jump Magazine. Major plot details, new characters, and an original anime exclusive will be announced for the game coming in February 2015.

XENOVERSE

The games main antagonists Towa and Mira have been displayed with more insight revolving around their roles in XENOVERSE. Towa is a Makaioshin scientist from the Dark World who works together with Mira to corrupt the history of the Dragon Ball Universe. Goku’s arch-enemies Majin Buu, Perfect Cell, and Freeza have been enhanced by Towa’s dark magic, giving them increased strength and a darker side shown by their red eyes without pupils. Towa and Mira were first revealed back in September.

  • Towa and Miira, the incredibly intelligent time-traveling couple with sinister plans for Planet Earth. Towa is a brilliant female demon scientist from the demon realm that teams up with Miira, an artificial being with Earthling, Android, and Demon blood. Miira stole the, “time passport” and his constant leaps through time threaten the entire space time continuum with paradoxes that could disrupt reality. It is unknown if the information we know about these two will show up in Dragon Ball: XENOVERSE, but it’s always good to know what these powerful foes are known for. *An interesting side note, He is referred to “Mira” in the screenshot, however, his actual name is known as “Mira”, an anagram for “mirai”, meaning future in Japanese. It is unknown if this is just a mistranslation.

Dragon Ball XENOVERSE will feature an exclusive original in-game anime. The anime will revolve around Time Patrol Trunks calling Shenron to ask for a “messiah” to save them. The playable character (You) will be summoned within this prayer to Shenron, and from there the character will meet The Supreme Kai of TIme and realize the threats Towa and Mira pose on the DB Universe.

New challengers approach XENOVERSE, Super Android 17 from Dragon Ball GT was announced. He will appear with his overwhelming attacks that go alongside the battle he had with Super Saiyan 4 Goku.

Super Saiyan God Goku was subtlety confirmed to descend onto the battlefield with a lone picture.

Players will be able to partake in extreme XENOVERSE battles at the Bandai Namco Games Booth at Jump Fiesta 2015. Jaco the Galactic Patrolmen and “Turtle Hermit” Clothes were advertised as First Print exclusive downloadable content for the game, along side a Dragon Ball Heroes card.

“J-Patrol” Dragon Ball Z + Naruto + One Piece Project

Earlier today, a website by the name of J-Patrol was launched teasing a project that will be released in the near future. For now, all the website contains is a single background image displaying obvious silhouettes of Luffy (One Piece), SSJ Goku (Dragon Ball Z), and Naruto (Naruto Shippuden).

J-Patrol BackgroundAlong with the websites launch, corresponding YouTube and Twitter accounts were also created. When Twitter user Weekly Saiyan contacted Bandai Namco France regarding J-Patrol, they simply replied with, “We don’t manage this profile, but I suggest you keep an eye on it ;)”.

Up until this point it is unclear whether or not J-Patrol is an official project, however, it is rumored that Bandai Namco is in fact backing it up. With that said, we are assuming that it is official. Be sure to stay tuned as this may be linked to one of the games being announced for 2015 at Jump Festa, which begins on December 20th.

However, the movie is set with a place holder run time of 120 minutes (2 hours). Unlike the previous film which had an alternative English title (Kami to Kami / Battle of Gods) this film currently does not have a supplementary English title listed on the movie poster. Revival of “F” will be centered around the reviving of Freeza. Toriyama stated that he, “deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal”, and he is writing it, “as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization.”

The official website for the Dragon Ball Z 2015 movie, “Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F” has been updated with a ton of new information, including an official trailer of the recently released television promo that appeared on Mezamashi TV in Japan. Along with the new official trailer being updated, a multitude of pictures have been added to the website. Be sure to read all of what we have to say. Every bit of information listed below is extremely valuable. 

Revival of F Logo

The text in the trailer reads the following (Courtesy of Kanzenshuu):

TEXT: Creator, Writer, Character Designer – Akira Toriyama
TEXT: The Entire Universe Despairs
TEXT: The Evil Emperor
TEXT: Revived
PICCOLO: He’s come back as a monster in a totally different league from us!
VEGETA: What’s going on?!
GOKU: Freeza!
FREEZA: Allow me to show you… my further evolution!

Firstly, the official website updated its “Story” page. In the image gallery above, specifically the image to the left shows (in order from left to right) Muten Roshi, Krillin, Tenshinhan, and Piccolo, followed by SSJ Gohan, a wounded Goku, Sorbet (a member of Freeza’s army who was recently revealed), Tagoma (another recently revealed member of Freeza’s army who is said to revive Freeza), and Vegeta. In addition, the image to the far right reads the following (Courtesy of Kanzenshuu):

宿命の激突!!
神を超える戦いが始まる――!!!!

破壊神ピルスとの闘い後、 再び平和が訪れた地球にフリーザ軍の生き残りであるソルベとタゴマが、ドラゴンボールを求めて近づいていた。その目的は、軍の再起のためにフリーザを復活させること。宇宙史上最悪のその願いは遂に叶えられ蘇ったフリーザは悟空たちサイヤ人への復讐を目論む… 。そして、地球に新フリーザ軍が押し寄せ悟飯ピッコロ、クリリンらは1000人の兵士と激突。悟空とベジータは、フリーザとの宿命の対決へと挑むが、フリーザは圧倒的なパワーアップを果たしていた!

「お見せしましょう…わたしの更なる進化を!!」

今、限界を遥かに超えた戦士たちの空前絶後の戦いが幕を開けようとしていた――。


A fated clash!!
A battle surpassing gods begins — !!!!

After peace returned to Earth following the battle with God of Destruction Beerus, the surviving remnants of Freeza’s forces, Sorbet and Tagoma, approached, seeking the Dragon Balls. Their objective: to revive Freeza in order to bring his forces back to power. That worst wish in history is granted at last, and the resurrected Freeza plots his vengeance against Goku and the other Saiyans… And so, Freeza’s new army advances on Earth, and Gohan, Piccolo, and Kuririn clash with a thousand soldiers. Goku and Vegeta challenge Freeza to a fated duel, but Freeza had attained an overwhelming power-up!

“Allow me to show you… my further evolution!”

Now, for warriors beyond their limis, the curtain was about to open on a battle like none before or since –.

In the image to the left we have two images from the official websites introduction page featuring Goku, Vegeta, and Whis. It’s interesting to note that both Goku and now Vegeta has the same symbol on the right of their armor/Gi. We still have yet to know what this symbol means, but there is a lot of specualtion surrounding the fact that they may have received training from both Beerus (The God of Destruction) and Whis (The attendant of Beerus), the antagonists from the 2013 Movie, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

Furthermore, the image to the right (also coming from the Introduction page) feature Beerus, The God of Destruction, along side a picture of Freeza.

Revival of F Freeza Recording

Lastly, on the “Special Contents” tab on the right size of the website, we have a special audio recording from Freeza himself! The audio recording states the following (Translation courtesy of Kanzenshuu):

地球のみんな様、この度私遂に復活することになりました。楽しみですよ、あの憎きサイヤ人達に復讐するその時が…2015年4月18日、みんな様も楽しみにしておいてくださいね。


People of Earth, this time around I shall finally be revived. I’m looking forward to the time when I will get my revenge on those loathsome Saiyans… 18 April 2015, everyone please look forward to it as well.

Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F (Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F[reeza]) is scheduled for release in Japanese theaters on April 18, 2015 (Debunking the previous listing from Cinema City).
