Various retailers have begun listing a light novel adaption of the forthcoming Dragon Ball Super: Broly theatrical film penned by Masatoshi Kusakabe published under the JUMP jBOOKS line. The description provided for the book mirrors the one currently on the film’s official website:

Earth is at peace following the Tournament of Power. Realizing that the universes still hold many strong people yet to see, Goku spends all his days training to reach even greater heights. Then, one day, Goku and Vegeta are faced by a Saiyan named “Broli” who they have never seen before. The Saiyans were supposed to have almost completely wiped out in the destruction of Planet Vegeta, so what is this one doing on Earth? This encounter between three Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies turns into a stupendous battle, with even Freeza (back from Hell) getting caught up in the mix.

The light novel is set for ¥734 and will release 14 December 2018, the same day as the film’s formal, nationwide premiere in Japan. The book is available to pre-order on Amazon Japan and CDJapan.

Kusakabe is known for similar Naruto adaptations, as well as works based on game series such as Xenogears.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ each received Film Anime Comics adaptations following their respective theatrical releases. The American-made live action film Dragon Ball Evolution received a “Junior Novel” adaptation alongside its theatrical release.
