“Battle Stadium D.O.N.” sees its release in Japan on the PlayStation 2 & GameCube today! Those of you who ordered it from Play-Asia probably had it shipped out to you on Tuesday (like I did), so look for it coming in this week!

The Magic Box has stated that Japanese retailers are listing a street day of 19 October 2006 for “Sparking! NEO” on both the PS2 and the Wii. The official website has no information on this subject at this time, but this date has been reflected on the Play-Asia entry.

Toei has revealed the covers for their next three DVDs of the Z Dragon Box individual disc release. Though volume #28 is a recycled image, it is still the best of the three in my opinion. Each of these discs will contain six episodes, covering episodes 160 thru 177, and are set to be released on 02 August 2006. You can still order any of the released discs or pre-order any of these three discs at Amazon Japan.

“Super Dragon Ball Z” sees its release in North America on the PlayStation 2 today!

From what I have been hearing, there is no option for the original Japanese voices in the US release of the game. Also, the sound effects are changed to be written out in English.

The big news today is, without a doubt, the goings-on with the future of Dragon Ball Z on DVD in North America, and specifically the “season one” box set we first reported on back in May.

FUNimation has left a message on the RightStuf home page saying the following:

We will re-announce this title with a new release date in Quarter 1 2007, and there will be other major announcements concerning the property at that time. These season sets are being enhanced and restored, and many new features are being added. Runtimes and packaging will also be different.

You would have to be silly not to connect the dots and start thinking like a true fanboy: has FUNimation secured the rights to the remastered “Dragon Box” footage, or something else entirely? No-one is confirming one way or the other, but the box set’s delay until 06 February 2007 and the promise of additional material sure seems to point toward something.
