Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will give Son Gohan the chance to shine while Goku and Vegeta are dealing with other threats. The feature-length anime movie will see Goku's son fight the new androids of the Red Ribbon Army, and he will be joined by Piccolo, Pan, and Krillin to deal with these threats. With the movie set to release in Japan this April, new images have surfaced that feature Gohan's new look, wearing his new purple gi while also showing aesthetic reminiscent to his battle against Cell during the Cell Games in Dragon Ball Z.
Over on Twitter, DBS Chronicles shared the latest merchandise for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, giving us a fresh look at Gohan without his Super Saiyan transformation.
The trailer and other images revealed at Jump Fiesta last month revealed that the young Saiyan will take on a larger role in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, fighting the Red Ribbon Army's new androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. The latest trailer showed Gohan transform in his Super Saiyan form, and it also featured footage of him fighting one of the androids in the rain.
The new merch revealed today also showed images of Piccolo, Pan, Gamma 1, Krillin, Goku, Vegeta, and Broly. There are also two hidden characters, and their appearance could be the upcoming movie's biggest surprise. Who could they be?
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is set to release in theaters in Japan on April 22, 2022. A North American release date hasn't been announced yet, but expect Funimation or Toei Animation to announce it soon.
