Dragon Ball Super ended in Japan only a few months ago, but it appears as though fans of the franchise won't have to wait until this Winter to see some new Dragon Ball content in anime form.

In the latest issue of V-Jump in Japan, a promotional anime was announced based off of the popular arcade game Super Dragon Ball Heroes and will follow its current "Prison Planet" story arc as the large text on the page translates to "Prison Planet Anime Edition" next to an image of Super Saiyan 4 Goku clashing with Super Saiyan Blue Goku.

This initial scan for the new anime doesn't go into much detail as to what to expect as far as how many episodes are going to be produced or when it will release, but it appears a preview screening event will be taking place in Japan on July 1st.

Dragon Ball Heroes is a popular card-based arcade game in Japan developed by Dimps featuring a large roster of characters from the original Dragon Ball to GT and even brand new characters with original story arcs.

The same issue of V-Jump also gave us a closer look at Vegito Blue in Dragon Ball FighterZ, who will be coming to the game with Fused Zamasu by the end of the month, along with some information on his special Dramatic Finish scene.

A website for the event is live, but currently only shows a group of planets chained together with the text "Coming Soon." You can check out the scan of the anime announcement below and a trailer for the game the promotional anime will be based on after the jump.
