PUBG Mobile will be holding a crossover with the Dragon Ball series. First revealed on the game’s official Twitter account, little information about the crossover was given other than that it is “coming soon.” By “soon”, that means Dragon Ball will make its way to PUBG Mobile in 2023. The announcement included art from the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero film, hinting that some of the crossover content could be specific to the movie.

The second Dragon Ball Super movie, titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, was released in Japan on June 11, 2022. The movie is currently airing in theaters in North America and other regions worldwide, with even more regions and territories getting theatrical releases throughout September. It is already one of the top-grossing anime movies of all time.
As for PUBG Mobile, though it’s also run by PUBG Corporation, it operates as a separate title with unique content compared with the console- and PC-based PUBG: Battlegrounds. Both titles were early popular pioneers of the battle royal subgenre. They spun off of mods created by Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene for the military sim game Arma II.
This is far from the first time PUBG Mobile has played host to an anime crossover event. Series such as Jujutsu Kaisen, Black Lagoon, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and even Sakura Wars previously made appearances in the mobile title. Interestingly, this isn’t Dragon Ball‘s first crossover with a battle royal game, either. Fortnite ran a Dragon Ball event that took place from August 16 to August 30, 2022.
The PUBG Mobile x Dragon Ball crossover will appear in 2023. PUBG Mobile is available for download on Android and iOS devices.
