Dragon Ball Heroes: Super Saiyan 4 Broly Promo

Bandai Namco has unveiled the trailer for Super Saiyan 4 Broly in the Japan-exclusive arcade game titled, Dragon Ball Heroes.

Trailer Description:
As the orchestrated music plays, we see all of our heroes wiped out. The Earth trembles as its crust is broken apart from the battle. SSJ4 Vegeta is lying in the wastes, knocked out. The ground erupts in magma, creating an unstable environment. SSJ4 Goku is unfortunately one of the victims of this monstrosity as well. Then in the darkness, we see Broly in his SSJ4 transformation, standing up as the moonlight illuminates through his hair and smiling as the bells toll. The trailer seems to have ended, but then we see Beat, the central character from Dragon Ball Heroes, grasp the ground..not giving up just yet.

Dragon Ball Heroes is a Japan exclusive, card-based arcade game. Stay tuned as this is just a promotional trailer, more is to be revealed. Until next time!

RobotUnderdog Live Action – Super Saiyan Transformation Review (Screenshot)

RobotUnderdog is the team responsible for the Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope live action project. This live action mini-web-series 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 (You can see the projects official trailer here). As expected, there is a huge fan-demand for how a top-tier live action Super Saiyan transformation would turn out. Lucky for us, we were granted the opportunity of seeing RobotUnderdog’s take on this iconic transformation.

RobotUnderdog SSJ

After seeing this transformation in action, we took away a few things. For one, it’s extremely obvious what RobotUnderdog is going for, which is to feel “real” and “organic.” For instance, if this could ACTUALLY happen in real life, what would it look like, and how can we make this believable? Well, the actual transformation itself looked extremely natural, which made it really great. With that said, there wasn’t any over-the-top CG. What really caught our eyes was the fact that no wig necessary on Gohan, so it really is a perfect representation of how his hair should look. In addition, although we only saw a rough cut, the music is especially fitting, and completely composed and written by Abraham Castañeda. That said, overall we were very impressed with how this is turning out.

For more information on the RobotUnderdog Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope live action project, be sure to follow them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Also, 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.
