The upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero anime film revealed a new trailer at its New York Comic Con panel on October 7. A new visual featuring two previously announced new characters Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 is also revealed.
The teaser trailer’s footage was taken from completed portions of the film. It teased flashes of characters old and new, with Goku, Piccolo, Pan, a split-second glance at Broly, and newbies Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 appearing.
With their character designs already teased at San Diego Comic-Con, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 were revealed to be the names of the twin-like grey aliens in corpsman-like uniforms, though their purpose in the movie remains elusive.
The Namekian youth Dende, who assisted Gohan and Krillin when they travelled to the planet to find the Dragon Balls, was also shown. Since Dragon Ball Super takes place several years after the Majin Buu fight seen in Dragon Ball Z, Dende is now grown up and looks much older.
In the panel, the film’s staff also shared character designs for Dende, Bulma, and Korin.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is slated for a Japanese release in 2022. The manga creator Akira Toriyama will write the original story, script, and character designs for the movie.
