Though the recent film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero hit DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD all at once upon release in Japan, the American release from Crunchyroll initially only featured DVD and Blu-ray formats. While a 4K Ultra HD has been promised for some time — initially (and strangely) only ever properly hinted at on a Bandai Namco video game tournament page — all we had to go on was a “fall” timeframe.
A new listing on RightStuf’s website confirms that Crunchyroll will release a Blu-ray/4K Ultra HD combo pack on 21 November 2023 for $39.98 MSRP.
The RightStuf listing notes that — “while supplies last” — the package will come with both a lenticular cover and a special holographic art card.
Amazon also has an exclusive steelbook version up for preorder, likewise at the $39.98 MSRP:
The story, script, and character designs for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero were crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama. Shueisha’s executive producer Akio Iyoku noted that the movie’s story takes place after the events in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, but before the 28th Tenka’ichi Budōkai, and features the revival of the notorious Red Ribbon Army. The film’s director is 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 is composed by Naoki Satō.
The movie was released theatrically in Japan on 11 June 2022, following a delay decided upon in conjunction with a Toei network hack. Home video releases hit Japan in December 2022 and in America last March. The Dragon Ball Super manga is currently telling its own version of the Super Hero film’s story.
