Ahead of its inclusion on the Dragon Ball Super: Super Theme Song Collection CD hitting Japan later this month, Akira Kushida’s “Ultimate Battle” — the insert song used multiple times during the on-going “Universe Survival arc” — saw a digital single release (COKM-40263) today (14 February 2018) in Japan.
The song is available on digital platforms — such as iTunes — for ¥250 alongside its karaoke version also for ¥250, or together in a bundle for ¥450.
“Ultimate Battle” debuted in Dragon Ball Super episode 110 and has been used several times over since then, both in vocal and instrumental form. While the song’s title in Japanese is written out as 究極の聖戦, the furigana for 聖戦 (sekisen or “holy war”) indicates an English pronunciation of “battle”. The song’s lyrics were provided by series veteran Yukinojō Mori, with composition by ZENTA, and arrangement by Takatsugu Wakabayashi and ZENTA.
The series’ second opening theme — “Limit-Break x Survivor” by Kiyoshi Hikawa — also received a digital single release ahead of a standard CD release.
