Just as we hinted at the other day, DragonBall DS 2 is confirmed!

As predicted, the game is subtitled Dragon Ball DS 2 Totsugeki! Reddo Ribon Gun (Dragon Ball DS 2: Charge! Red Ribbon Army), and it is due out in Japan 11 February 2010 for ¥5229. This is the sequel to the first Dragon Ball DS, which was released one year ago domestically as Dragon Ball Origins.

Word on the street is that Dragon Ball DS 2 (or Origins 2 as it will most likely be named in North America) is set to be officially revealed in an upcoming Jump issue. Will there be even more than that, though…? Stay tuned…

In surprising and confusing news, the Amazon listing for FUNimation’s first Dragon Box, released just yesterday here in North America, has a disconcerting inventory update:

Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it’s described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We’re working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

It could be nothing, or it could be something. We simply do not know right now. Hopefully we get some kind of official word from FUNimation soon. Anecdotal comments and even YouTube videos seem to be with regard to dubbed audio timing/sync being off.

In related news, RightStuf is listing the second Dragon Ball Z TV Dragon Box for 16 February 2010.

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast on the PS3 was the third-best-selling game this past week in Japan, selling 57,972 copies its first week. The Xbox 360 version is actually down in the #28 spot, selling around another 7,000 copies on that platform.

Overall, these first week sales are down a bit from Infinite World (PS2) which sold 76,500 copies its first week back in December 2008, and Burst Limit (PS3) which sold 92,298 copies its first week back in June 2008.



Sure, it’s a little late… but better late than never. This episode we hit you with Volume 31 in our “Manga Review of Awesomeness”. Cell has made his presence known, and our heroes have become outclassed just as fast as they became the strongest. Do we finally have an interesting villain for the story arc, or is everything just a little too convenient and confusing? Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

As a reminder, both Dragon Ball: Raging Blast (PS3/360) and Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans (Nintendo DS) are shipping in North America today. We are hearing tons of reports that Raging Blast is actually ringing up at $39.99 at many GameStop locations. Look for reviews of both games soon right here on the website!

Many online retailers have dropped the price of Raging Blast on the PS3 from $59.99 to $49.99 (Amazon, GameStop, etc.). Interestingly, the 360 version remains at the $59.99 on Amazon, but GameStop has dropped it to $49.99 to match the PS3 version.

We have reached out to Namco-Bandai to clarify whether this is a change at the MSRP level, or if this is retailer-specific.

UPDATE: Word from Namco-Bandai is that the MSRP is indeed still $59.99, and that any lower price at launch is a retailer-specific, limited-time promotion.
