USAopoly, “a leading developer and manufacturer of board games and puzzles,” works with various publishers and rights-holders to produce various branded merchandise for series such as Harry Potter, Yu-Gi-Oh, The Walking Dead, Star Trek, and more.
A “Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai 2” MONOPOLY Junior edition was marketed and released internationally back in 2009. This was seemingly non-Japanese, non-American product; America received the related PlayStation Portable game as Shin Budokai: Another Road.
American board game production for Dragon Ball dates back to FUNimation’s initial runthrough of the series. In 2002-2003, Panini released several Dragon Ball Z “Battle Board Game” editions, while FUNimation released a physical trivia game with Parklife Games in 2004.
