Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope Official Trailer #3

RobotUnderdog unveiled the final trailer for the 1st episode of the live action project/web series, Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope. Before we venture into details, this web series is based on the TV Special “Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks”, the “alternate timeline” without intervention from Future Trunks. Goku dies from a heart virus, and Dr. Gero releases two murderous androids as part of his plan for revenge towards the people of Earth. Vegeta, Piccolo, and Krillin all perish in battle with the twin androids 17 and 18. All but one warrior survives: The son of Goku, Gohan. He trains himself constantly without being discovered by the Androids. Through this, he achieves the Super Saiyan form, and although it isn’t enough to stop both of them, he still remains a formidable force. Young Trunks was only an infant when the Androids destroyed civilization. Growing up in this desolate, dangerous world influenced his desire in seeking justice. It’s in his Saiyan blood to fight, upon grown up, Gohan becomes his master and trains him in order to survive. This is when Light of Hope takes place.

The trailer starts with Trunks dissatisfied with his strength compared to the powerful Androids. You can easily see his grief from growing up in an age of disaster. Gohan tells him about an important concept from the DBZ world, gaining from the pain of loss. Trunks is too young to grasp that knowledge, and instead gets angry because he has already lost mostly everything. They then fly off, in a very realistic style. Scenes from the battle occur, the beautiful and deadly Android 18 counters their every move. Android 17 is especially gruesome, killing somebody in point-blank range and smiling it off. Different scenes are shown and we can see Bulma, Gohan getting kicked into a mountain, devastating Ki blasts, Trunks being held in the air for a final blow, and an awesome looking Kamehame-ha attack being charged by Gohan.

Then Gohan lays down his fist and charges up. Pebbles levitate and float around as Gohan begins his transformation. His eyes turn greenish-blue, and he becomes a Super Saiyan. The light from his aura overwhelms Android 17, and Super Saiyan Gohan is ready take him on.

Already judging from the trailer, we can tell that the RobotUnderdog team is taking this very seriously. From high quality special effects for the energy blasts, to very fitting music completely composed and written by Abraham Castañeda. RobotUnderdog is hearing out fans on what they want in a live action adaptation of Dragon Ball Z. This project has been active for over a year now, and Episode 1 is coming soon. For more information on the RobotUnderdog Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope live action project, be sure to follow them on InstagramFacebook and Twitter. Be sure to check out their official website at www.robotunderdog.com.

Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope will be a three-part, live action, mini web series, that is being put together by a team by called RobotUnderdog. It will be based on and corresponding with the events of the “alternate timeline”, which became popular through the TV special Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks. For the record, this is a live action web adaptation. This project is NOT intended to be identical to the aforementioned TV special. It is, however, based on the future timeline of events where Trunks, Gohan and Bulma struggle to stay alive (despite all of the casualties) from the murderous Androids, 17 and 18.

SSJ4 Vegeta as XENOVERSE Pre-Order Bonus only

Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta was revealed as a pre-order only character for the upcoming Dragon Ball: XENOVERSE video game. Of course this upsets many people, because SSJ4 Goku is available regardless of pre-ordering. SSJ4 Vegeta’s unavailability to players who didn’t pre-order lowers the chances of a fan favorite character SSJ4 Gogeta on initial release, because if a fusion system is implemented players would most likely need to have SSJ4 Vegeta ready and loaded. It is likely that since only half of the SSJ4 duo will be available to players who didn’t pre-order, a plan to include more GT related characters VIA Downloadable Content will be implemented. However, Bandai Namco and Dimps, the developers behind the well-received Budokai series, have likely already considered this in their decision to make SSJ4 Vegeta pre-order only.

There is a good chance SSJ4 Vegeta will appear as DLC (Downloadable Content) later in the year for those who didn’t pre-order, and SSJ4 Gogeta is likely to have the same situation. Aspects of GT in XENOVERSE remain close to none besides the Super Saiyan 4 Transformation, but for now players who pre-order XENOVERSE are already ahead of the game.
