The latest “Dragon Ball Z” film “Battle Of Gods” probably made you all think that the highest level a Saiyan could acheive is that of a Super Saiyan God. I know it made me think that, so why wouldn’t it be the same for everyone else who watched it? Here we are, thinking that there’s no possible way Goku could get any stronger than he already is. As it turns out…we are very much mistaken.
The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump over in Japan has revealed that Frieza wont be the only “Dragon Ball Z” character to get a colour change in the upcoming feature film “Resurrection Of F”. Oh no no! Now that Frieza is a Golden God, it means that Goku has to get stronger to be able to match him. Allow me to introduce you to the most redundant power up name to ever come from the “Dragon Ball” series, Goku’s new form; the “Super Saiyan God SS”. The “SS” obviously standing for Super Saiyan…meaning that the full name of this form is the “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.
This form doesn’t change Goku too much: His hair style remains mostly the same, now resembling that of his standard Super Saiyan form, he’s wearing more or less the same clothes so that hasn’t changed. What HAS changed, though, is the colour of his hair. Super Saiyan lights our hero ablaze with yellow, Super Saiyan God gives ol’ Goku a nice shock of red hair, Super Saiyan God SS, well…it turns his hair a wonderful shade of blue. Yep, blue. Now Goku can look like all the fan drawings that have surfaced over the years depicting Goku transcending levels unseen in the series up util now. Remember that April Fool’s Day gag “Dragon Ball AF”? Well we’re getting much closer to seeing that!
This new power-up is kind of mysterious as of this point in time. We know what it makes Goku look like but we don’t know how it is that he achieves it. In “Battle Of Gods” it is the unison of Saiyan blood that grants Goku the ability to use the Super Saiyan God form. For Super Saiyan God SS it could really be anything. We just don’t know about it yet. What we DO know is that this version of Goku will appear in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS fighting game “Dragon Ball Z: Super Extreme Butoden” but even then we don’t know whether that will hit Western shores anytime soon.
Either way, we’ve all got a lot to look forward to with this new move “Resurrection Of F”: There’s a golden Frieza, a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku, I’m sure something is going to get blown up. It’s pretty exciting! The film is set to be released theatrically around Japan on the 18th of the month. When it’s going to get released outside of Japan is up in the air right now but I’m sure we’ll be hearing about it very soon.
