In addition to the titles and releases we already knew, our forum member Mike found a few updates on GameStop.com for the domestic releases of a few games.

To break down the important information, it looks like both the domestic releases of “Super Dragon Ball Z” and “Sparking! NEO” are coming in at a very affordable $39.99 price point. In addition to that, “Advances Adventure” is sporting cover art changed from its original Japanese version, but still pretty neat on its own:

GameStop.con is listing the domestic PS2 version of “Sparking! NEO” as “Budokai Tenkaichi 2”, with the Wii version (for $60) as “Tenkaichi NEO”. Interesting. There is still no official Japanese release date for the game, but one can probably safely assume September/October (the last game came out approximately two weeks earlier in Japan than it did in the US).

Tullece, the Goku-doppelgänger and main villain from the third Dragon Ball Z movie, will indeed be making his first appearance as a playable video game character in this year’s upcoming “Sparking! NEO”. Jeux-France is hosting an image from the latest “V-Jump” showcasing not only Tullece, but his apparent Great Ape transformation!

One of our newer forum members, theoriginalbilis, originally found some listings on DVD retailer sites back at the end of last month. What were they advertising? A complete DVD box set of the first “Ultimate Uncut”… err… “season”. Details were not well known.

But now they are. Apparently, FUNimation will be releasing a 5 DVD set (yes, that is only five discs) on 26 September 2006. What is the insane part? It is only $50. That is right, the same ridiculous amount of discs that are not even done coming out yet are being re-re-released in September on fewer discs for a horrifyingly low price.

Both RightStuf and aaaanime.com has listings, the latter complete with an image of the box.

Do with that information as you will, and read what everyone’s been saying about it.

Special thanks to sangofe on our forum for bringing it to our attention, and then Conan for translating it all for us. Here is a little bit of information:

Two discs will be rocking in this first volume, similar to that of the Cabala of the Zodiac (which included 8 collectible editions). Overall, 36 releases, presented/displayed in sexy double cases (covered with a cardboard cover), and this will comprise the four basic sagas; each one’s cover sporting a distinctive color. This’ll divide DragonBall Z into the respective Saiyan, Freeza, Cell and Majin Boo arcs.

The image quality of these editions is taken from the original masters without censorship, as well as has been re-mastered to offer the best possible visual quality. Not to mention, the inclusion of the original language, the diverse additions, and Castilian subtitle track. We, the distributors, confirm that we’re working on translating this directly from the Japanese version to accomplish the greatest possible quality, with respectable accuracy to the original dialogue.

Extras include some video game openings, OP/ED karaoke versions, image galleries, tons of audio tracks… this is definitely something to keep an eye on! The original news can be found over at zonadvd.com.

It has been a while since we last saw some of these, but Toei has finally revealed the covers for their next three DVDs of the Z Dragon Box individual disc release. Disc #22 will contain six episodes, while discs #23 and #24 are breaking the mold and will contain five episodes each (same as with Dragon Box Z Volume 1). In total, these discs will cover episodes 127 thru 142. These three DVDs are set to be released on June 7, after going a month without seeing a release. Don’t forget that you can still order any of the released discs or pre-order any of these three discs at Amazon Japan.

Thanks to Yami-Tenchi for reminding us about these. Oddly enough, both CDJapan and Amazon Japan have the new covers posted before any official Toei site.

Special thanks to LaRésistance from our forum for this image, which is essentially announcing another game in the “Jump Super Stars” lineup coming later this year! Bandai wants to know which characters from the Jump universe Japanese gamers would like to play as in the next game. Neato!

Here’s hoping a certain magical cat named with a certain last letter of the alphabet makes a dramatic appearance…!
