Banpresto is releasing a new line of figures in celebration of Jump’s 40th anniversary. In these Dragon Ball x One Piece crossover figures, Goku is wearing Luffy’s outfit, vice versa, and then Bulma in a girly-Luffy-outfit, while Nami sports a girly-Goku-outfit.

Dengeki.com has a plethora of images for this line, while our buddy Oldphan’s site has a great collection of images of a new line of Chopper (also One Piece) all dressed up in an astonishing number of Dragon Ball character outfits.

It would seem that the upcoming “21st Century Version” CD featuring new recordings of the Dragon Ball opening and ending is actually going under the title “Inazuma Challenger”, which was previously listed as just a regular ol’ song on the disc (assumed to be a new image song). Well, it is now the title track and the first song on the disc.

You can check out a couple short song samples (DB OP/ED included) over on the TEAM Entertainment website. The CD is still due out 04 June 2008 for ¥1600.

Japanese video game magazine “Famitsu” has given the upcoming “Burst Limit” for the PS3 and Xbox 360 scores of 9 / 8 / 8 / 8 (33/40). Definitely not too shabby.



It seems that Viz will be releasing what looks to be a domestic release of the first daizenshuu. Amazon and Target are both listing “Dragon Ball: The Complete Illustrations” with a release date of 19 August 2008 and at a retail price of $24.99 (on sale for $16.49). Even though this is listed as a paperback, if this truly is what everyone thinks it is, then many a dreams will come true this August.



Selecta Vision will be releasing Dragon Ball GT on DVD (Vol 1 / Vol 2 / Vol 3) similar to their in-process Dragon Ball Z release over in Spain. These two-disc sets have eight episodes each, are created from Dragon Box masters (as opposed to through their own in-house remastering process a la FUNimation), and while they contain less languages than the DBZ releases, will at least continue to showcase the Castilian, Catalan, and original Japanese language tracks (with Spanish subtitles). Remember that these are R2 PAL DVDs. According to an article on zonadvd.com (and brought to our attention on the forum by SonGokuGT):

Essentially, this states that Selecta Vision is in talks with Toei to be able to re-release the original Dragonball series fully uncut using the DragonBox masters for the Spanish market. Toei stated that they are very pleased with Selecta’s DBZ and DBGT releases so things are looking good for Spain!

Selecta Vision is very determined to have all of the Dragonball saga, including the three series, movies and specials available in Spain uncut and with great picture quality. Selecta is driven to re-release Dragonball due to Manga Films’ previous releases being edited without a Japanese track, and with the subpar video quality of the AB masters.

Remember that this Spanish dub is different from the (highly regarded) Mexican Spanish dub. Volumes 1 & 2 of DBGT are already out, and volume 3 is coming 18 June 2008.

In case there were any outstanding questions in anyone’s mind(s), the new “Viz Big” (omnibus, three-in-one) editions of the Dragon Ball manga are indeed still censored.

Donny Clay is continuing to pump out the marketing in conjunction with IGN, and while we feel slightly dirty pushing it along, it continues to be note-worthy that IGN is placing at least this type of support behind the franchise. Check it out for yourself — there are some slight inaccuracies plaguing the article, and it seems more like a chronology of the “Budokai” and “Sparking!” series (with “Sagas” randomly thrown in) more than anything else. There is no coverage of their own portable games, and absolutely no mention of anything pre-”Budokai”.
