Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero On March 6, 2022, Toei Animation publicly stated that it had been the victim of a huge hack, forcing the company to postpone all releases.
One Piece, Dragon Quest, Delicious Party Precure and Digimon have been moved to new dates, while the Dragon Ball Super Super Hero movie has been postponed without further details. Piracy has indeed complicated the production, causing delays and no longer allowing the studio to offer the film on time.
But beyond the film, it’s a whole marketing machine that has been slowed down. The basic plan was to publish two novels, or light novel in this case, related to the feature film in the release window of the latter. Novels are supposed to illuminate the script of the film a few days after its release, and which can not be published if it is postponed.
But it is perhaps thanks to these two novels that we can estimate the new release date of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Indeed, these two books will be released on June 30 according to DBSHype, an extremely well-informed person when it comes to evoking the license created by Akira Toriyama. If the initial plan has simply been postponed, it means that the release window of the film could be around June 27. On the other hand, it is difficult to know if the exit from the front of Japan has also borne the brunt of this piracy.
Dragon Ball Super: SUPERHERO – both novels have been rescheduled for release on June 30, 2022! The release date of the film will also be revealed soon!
Recall that the film will be released during the 28th Tenkaichi Budokai, and will tell the return to the front of the stage of the Red Ribbon Army. The latter have not reappeared alone since two new cyborgs, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 will come to face the heroes. In a description translated by Todd Blakenship, we learn that it is Piccolo who notices these strange signs of activity.
He then decides to take a look at the base of the Red Ribbon Army and discovers an ultimate “evil” weapon. At the same time, Pan is kidnapped in order to lure Gohan. Then will begin a merciless confrontation that, once again, will preside over the fate of the Earth. We take this opportunity to remind you that the film will use a rendering in 3D and 2D, which made a lot of fans cringe.
