Super Dragon Ball Heroes is a spin-off series that explores uncharted waters for the Akira Toriyama franchise, bringing together the Z Fighters that we’ve come to know and the Goku, Vegeta, and Trunks of the Time Patrol to battle new threats as well as returning villains from the Shonen franchise’s past. It seems however that the next episode of the anime is set to bring to a close the current arc, and is looking to take things up a notch for Son Goku and his friends as Heroes tells stories outside of the main continuity.
In the previous episode of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, viewers were able to witness a unique fusion that saw two Gokus bonding their energy with one another, rather than joining their two bodies into one. With the mad scientist Fuu performing a fusion of his own that was able to defeat two separate Gogetas, the Z Fighters are going to need all the help they can get when it comes to taking down the villain looking to avenge the loss of his homeworld in the Dark Demon Dimension. With the last installment bringing in the likes of Cumber, OG Broly, and several other classic villains, who knows what characters will appear before the Big Bang Mission draws to a close.
Twitter User DBS Chronicles shared the news that the Big Bang Mission was set to come to a close with the next episode of the spin-off, with the next arc of the anime series already confirmed to be the “Ultra God Mission,” which will apparently raise the stakes for the Z Fighters across realities:

Super Dragon Ball Heroes is one of the best examples of “fan service” when it comes to offering followers of the Shonen franchise characters and transformations that might have otherwise never returned in the main series of Dragon Ball Super. With Ultra God Mission nigh, the trailer for this arc for the Dragon Ball Heroes Arcade game saw Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan 4 Goku squaring off once again, with a mysterious figure staring on in the background who appears to be a dark version of the Supreme Kai of Time.
