On Thursday, the official Twitter account for the battle royale game PUBG MOBILE revealed a teaser trailer, highlighting gameplay from the new collaboration with the late Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball Super series.

The previous collaboration between the two franchises occurred around the same time last year. 

PUBG MOBILE is one of the many video games to join the trend of collaborating with Anime franchises.

Fortnite announced a collaboration with Dragon Ball last year as well. 

PUBG Mobile is a popular battle royale mobile game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole.

It is a mobile version of the hugely successful PC game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).

The mobile version was developed specifically for iOS and Android devices and was released in March 2018.

About Dragon Ball:

Dragon Ball is a manga series by Akira Toriyama. It first began its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1984.

The manga was later adapted into a multitude of animated series, movies, and games.

The franchise consists of five different anime series, about 21 animated movies, and around 10 games spanning various platforms, from Famicon to Playstation and Xbox.

Synopsis of the Dragon Ball anime:

Goku Son is a young boy who lives in the woods all alone—that is, until a girl named Bulma runs into him in her search for a set of magical objects called the “Dragon Balls.”

Since the artefacts are said to grant one wish to whoever collects all seven, Bulma hopes to gather them and wish for a perfect boyfriend.

Goku happens to be in possession of a dragon ball, but unfortunately for Bulma, he refuses to part ways with it, so she makes him a deal: he can tag along on her journey if he lets her borrow the dragon ball’s power.

With that, the two set off on the journey of a lifetime.
