“Super Dragon Ball Z” for the Japanese PS2 has been pushed back to 29 June 2006. It was previously scheduled for release on April 13th. The game can still be found in Japanese arcades until then (and most likely after, for a little while longer).

Has the domestic release of “Advanced Adventure” on the Nintendo GameBoy Advance been delayed yet again? A listing does not yet exist on Amazon, and GameStop.com’s listing has been updated to a release date of 13 June 2006. It was previously listed for an April 3rd/4th release date… and that was after being pushed back a month even before that.

This poor game just cannot see the light of day in the US. It is not like there is not already a fully-completed English translation in other countries, or anything!

As done many times before, McDonald’s will be giving away Dragon Ball pencil boards with the purchase of a happy meal in Japan.

There will be two sets of pencil boards, each offered on different days in March (18-19 and 25-26). If you happen to be in Japan, and order a happy meal on any of those days, you will get some awesome Dragon Ball merchandise. As a special bonus, if you go in to a McDonald’s on 21 March 2006, you’ll get a free Dragon Ball Z poster.

The first mainstream review of “Shin Budokai” for the PSP seems to come from Chris Roper over at IGN, who gave it a 7.0 (“good”) overall score.

Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai is a very simplistic fighter with a “so bad it’s good” storyline wrapped in an extremely portable package. It’s not great by any means, but hardcore DBZ fans will find a whole lot to like here.

You will be able to pick the game up in stores tomorrow. The Japanese version is due out 20 April 2006.

Coming earlier this month than usual, we have the covers for the next three DVDs of the Z Dragon Box individual disc release. Each of these discs will contain six episodes, covering episodes 91 thru 108. These three DVDs are set to be released 05 April 2006. You can order any of the released discs or pre-order any of these three discs at Amazon Japan.

There is a good reason these covers were revealed early: the month of April will be seeing a release of six DVDs as opposed to the usual three. Unfortunately, this means that we will not be seeing any DVD releases in May. Also, with the release of the 18th volume, those that have purchased all 18 will finally be able to get their hands on the beautiful diorama of Freeza, Super Saiyan Goku, and Vegeta — simply send in the coupons that came with each volume to get your diorama. There is a catch like always, however — the sly people at Toei are making this offer only available to those with a Japanese residence. If you do not live in Japan, you do not get a diorama even if you shelled out all that cash to get the individual discs. That is a shame!
