PUBG Mobile x Dragon Ball: PUBG Mobile announced a collaboration with Dragon Ball, a popular anime franchise, 10 months ago. The anticipated Dragon Ball content was expected to be introduced the following year, but the recent 2.6 updates focused on a different theme, disappointing players. However, rumors suggest the upcoming 2.7 updates will finally bring the long-awaited Dragon Ball collaboration. Rumors suggest that the upcoming collaboration will introduce a Dragon Ball Discovery event, accompanied by thematic changes to the classic battle royale maps. Fans eagerly anticipate this update, hoping to experience the fusion of their favorite anime characters with the intense gameplay of PUBG Mobile.

Based on leaked information from data miners and reputable YouTubers who specialize in reporting such details, PUBG Mobile seems to be gearing up to introduce purchasable character skins inspired by beloved characters from the Dragon Ball franchise. The exciting part is that these character skins are rumored to come with signature emotes, such as iconic power-ups and fusion dances. Interestingly, last year, the developers sought audience input through a Google form to determine which characters players would most like to see in the collaboration. While the specific list of characters featured in the form is not available, fans can anticipate a diverse range of Dragon Ball characters to make an appearance in the collaboration.
Most of these characters are expected to be featured in the upcoming collaboration, although players may need to spend in-game currency or real money to acquire the desired skins, based on past collaborations. Alongside purchasable skins, Dragon Ball-themed events are anticipated, and classic maps will undergo a transformation through the Dragon Ball Discovery event, creating an immersive experience akin to previous anime collaborations.
