A Fusion of Worlds

The collaboration was first hinted at in August 2022 and has been highly anticipated by fans. It features two new game modes: Shenron Gameplay and Battle Royale: Dragon Ball Super. These modes integrate iconic elements from the Dragon Ball universe into PUBG Mobile, allowing players to experience their favorite anime in a whole new way.

Shenron Gameplay

In Shenron Gameplay, players must collect all seven Dragon Balls scattered across the map. Successfully gathering these Dragon Balls enables players to summon Shenron, the mystical dragon, who grants powerful buffs. The game mode includes features like Ki, a new attribute that enhances mobility and allows the use of special moves like the Kamehameha and Buku-jutsu (Levitation Technique). Players can also consume Senzu Beans to restore health and energy, and use the Dragon Radar to locate Dragon Balls​.

Battle Royale: Dragon Ball Super

This standalone mode transforms the battleground into an anime-style world, allowing players to choose from characters such as Son Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Piccolo, and Ultimate Gohan. Each character has unique abilities and moves, bringing a fresh dynamic to the game. Players collect Spirit Crystlets and Spirit Crystals to power up their abilities and can use new features like Teleport Points and Updrafts to navigate the map​​.

The collaboration also introduces a new 1.6 x 1.6 km map inspired by Dragon Ball. This map includes iconic locations such as Kame House, Karin Tower, and the Tenkaichi Budokai. Players can explore these landmarks while engaging in battles with Dragon Ball-themed weapons and items, including the Air Car, which can be deployed as a hovercraft, and the Hoipoi Capsule​​.

Special Cosmetics and Rewards

To celebrate the collaboration, PUBG Mobile is releasing a range of Dragon Ball Super-themed outfits and items. Players can dress their characters in outfits inspired by Son Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, and other beloved characters. The first wave of these items is available from July 14, with more content arriving on August 11​.

A Historic Collaboration

This collaboration is significant not only for PUBG Mobile but also for the Dragon Ball franchise. It marks the first time Dragon Ball Super has partnered with a mobile-only game, reflecting the enduring popularity of both the anime and the game. Vincent Wang, Head of PUBG Mobile Publishing at Tencent Games, highlighted the collaboration’s importance, noting how it resonates with multi-generational audiences and aligns with the game’s themes of overcoming challenges​​.
