I know that set 9 has barely had time to learn to crawl yet, and there is still so much to talk about and explore with Legends; however, I got a chance to sit and talk with the head of the Dev Team – Joey DiCarlo – this past weekend at South Kai, and he drop a few hints for me to share with you all at what we can expect from set 10 dropping later this year!
So I thought what better time than the present to take a look at what will be coming down the pipeline and piece together what it could mean for the game moving forward!
Let’s dive into it, shall we!
Hint #1: The Time Period
This one should come down as little surprise I feel, given that we just came out of another movie/supplemental set, but set 10’s time line will pick up where the story last left off – starting at the 7 year gap after the defeat of Cell and ending at the Gohan vs Majin Dabura fight!
So what does this mean we will see in the set? Well likely:
– The Great Saiyaman arc
– The World Martial Arts Tournament arc
– The beginning of the Babidi arc
What we likely won’t see:
– Goku SSJ2
– Majin Vegeta
– Majin Buu
Hint #2: The World Martial Arts Championship Belt is a card!
That’s right folks! You too will soon be able to rep gold like The Champ himself very shortly in the game!
Not only is the belt in the game, but I’ve heard tell that it will likely be a non-Styled Attachment! Those looking to play cards like Unleashed in less promoted Styles, like Orange and Black, may soon get your wish if the belt is good enough!
As founder of the WMAT Format, which is played on the Dragonball Z OCTGN League, I know I’m personally excited to see what the Champ Belt will do (and may look into customizing or signing a few to give away for the official event if able)!
Hint #3: Number of MPs in the Set
Since set 10 will be a starter set of sorts (similar to Premium, Evolution & Awakening), we will be receiving a total of 8 full MP stacks as well as several single levels to help promote weaker MPs.
What could these full stacks entail? Well if I had to guess…:
– Gohan (as The Great Saiyaman)
– Kid Trunks
– Android 18 (as a Hero stack!)
– Majin Dabura
– Majin Spopovich
As far as the single MPs, my guess would likely be:
– Hercule (possibly a different level 1?)
– Vegeta (Hero Level) [possibly to help with the Evo stack?]
Allies for this set may turn out to be any of the following:
– The Announcer
– Marron (Krillin & A18’s Daughter)
– Supreme Kai
– Majin Yamu
– Majin Yakon
– Majin Pui Pui
Hint #4: Heritage Matters!
Our final hint for the set is a rather interesting one – that of “Heritage Matters”.
Now for those that played in the original ScoreZ days, you may remember cards with the text “Namekian Heritage Only” or “Saiyan Heritage Only” dictating that only MPs of that particular heritage could use those cards.
Likewise, those who played the “Re-Z” brand of the game may recall that each MP and Ally in the game came keyworded with a particular heritage (called traits in the game): Human, Saiyan, Alien or Namek.
Could this be a similar mechanic that checks to see which sort of trait/heritage your personality has? Certainly we already have guidelines on “Heritage” of sorts thanks to the MPs that are allowed to use the Saiyan and Namekian Masteries.
What exactly will this mean for the game moving forward? Only time will tell!
Gaze into My Crystal Ball…
And that’s all she wrote for this one!
I hope seeing a few of these hints has gotten you excited about what may be in store for us in the future! I know I’m personally excited to see a few of these things see the light of day, should I be correct on some of the speculation presented above.
But until we get closer to the end of the year, all we’re left with is our crazy thoughts and hopes to keep us guessing on what might be.

Likewise, please make sure to check out the KMDcast YouTube channel if you haven’t already. Matt Coombs, Wayne “Dakid” Bettis & myself drop some DBZ knowledge each week on the latest events, happenings in the meta, etc. It’s a lot of fun, and we want to hear more feedback from the audience on what they’d like to hear from us moving forward!
Until next time, FanZ Warriors!
