“Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero” Original Soundtrack Announced For Release in June 2022
Published by 13 May 2022, 12:01 PM EDT

A new listing on Columbia Japan’s official website pegs the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Original Soundtrack (COCX-41770) as set for release 08 June 2022 in Japan for ¥2,750.

The soundtrack by Naoki Satō is set to span 23 tracks, though none of the specific track titles are available as-of-yet; as the track titles generally contain specific spoilers for the respective film (see: the Battle of Gods soundtrack listing), it is common for companies to hold off on the full listing until closer to the film’s release date.

Current promotions include a “Mega Jacket” for pre-orders via Amazon Japan.

The soundtrack’s release on June 8 is just ahead of the film’s Japanese debut on June 11, which will be followed by two novelizations of the film on June 14: a light novel version under the jBOOKS line, and a separate version under Shueisha’s Mirai Bunko line (a line geared toward even younger readers, with furigana accompanying kanji).

The story, script, and character designs for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero are being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama. Shueisha’s executive producer Akio Iyoku has noted that the movie’s story will take place after the events in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, but before the 28th Tenka’ichi Budōkai, and feature the revival of the notorious Red Ribbon Army. The film’s director will be Tetsuro Kodama, who was most recently the CG Sequence Director for the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film, with Hoon Jung-jae taking over the CG Director role after being a CG effects artist in the preceding two films, Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’. The film’s theatrical score will be composed by Naoki Satō and it has been noted that the Japanese cast recorded their lines in early October 2021. The movie is currently slated for release in Japan on 11 June 2022, following a delay decided upon in conjunction with a Toei network hack.
