There was apparently major error with the initial release of the “Budokai 3: Greatest Hits” disc in North America: they did not put the “Greatest Hits” version in the box! Instead, the original version from November 2004 was slapped in, which does not contain the extra material (such as the selectable Japanese voice cast) promised for the re-release.

Thankfully, fixed versions have begun trickling into stores, and it seems like Atari has fessed up and has issued information allowing customers to get fixed versions:

Due to an error in production, some copies of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Greatest Hits did not include the game’s new features, including the Japanese character voices. If you have purchased Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Greatest Hits and believe this feature is missing, here is what you should do:

– By Email via our Support page for Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Greatest Hits located here.

– Notify the Technical Support representative of your problem and you will be given a Return Merchandise Authorization number, or RMA number, as well as our mailing address.

– Send the game disc, and please include a brief, typed letter with your name, complete address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if you have one) in case we need to contact you, as well as your RMA number both on the letter and on the outside packaging.

– We will send you a replacement game as soon as possible.

– Note that the RMA number will remain valid for 120 days from the date issued, and we must receive your claim within this 120-day period in order to be processed.

You are entitled to this fixed version if you purchased the “Greatest Hits” version that does not actually contain the “Greatest Hits” version, and if you are just now getting around to picking up the game, changes are you will want the most complete version!

Thanks to our own forum member Tekkaman Gamma51 for providing the Atari forum link.

Toei has unveiled what the actual “Dragon Box: The Movies” set will look like — it seems they will not be going with the image from DBZ movie 10 that they have been using for months as an advertisement. Though the image of Goku was used as promotional posters in Japan, most websites did not use it.

In addition to all this fun stuff, we got more information about the scouter transceivers. It seems that the Movie Dragon Box will come with two scouters for enjoyable conversations at great distances, as advertised on Toei’s site — it is pretty clear that these scouters are indeed simple walkie talkies.

As a reminder for those that still want to order the set, pre-orders end on 21 December 21 2005.

North American releases of the following games have been found on

It is about time that “Advance Adventure” finally sees a North American release! Most interesting is definitely the PSP game. Will it be a port of one of the previous “Budokai” games? Will it be a conversion of the arcade fighter “Super Dragon Ball Z? Who knows?!
