Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Coming to North America

FUNimation has revealed that the latest anime movie from the Dragon Ball franchise, Battle of Gods, will be coming to North America. This time around, it’s not just through home video (as is FUNimation’s M.O.,) but also through a special event screening planned for August 5 to 9. You can check out the video below for the official announcement (the video is only available to specific regions, sorry):

Pokemon Bank is Now Available in Australia, Europe, and New Zealand

After the somewhat problematic western launch of Nintendo’s Pokemon Bank 3DS app last December, which resulted in the launch being postponed due to the unexpectedly large volume of traffic that crippled their servers, the service has now been officially made available to gamers in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

In order to make up for the false start, people who are based in any of the launch regions can start to download and try it out and receive a complimentary Celebi for their troubles. Currently, there is still no word on when the Pokemon Bank service will be released for North America. Gamers who are based in the launch regions can start their trial periods, which is free of charge without any restrictions, but once the trial period is over, the service will cost $4.99 per year.

North American fans of Inazuma Eleven, particularly those who own a Nintendo 3DS will be glad to know that a new game based on the franchise will be coming to North American shores. The news came from Nintendo themselves, via the official page’s release calendar, which lists an Inazuma Eleven 3DS game as one of the NA releases for this year. There’s no detail as to which of the many IE games it will be, but the schedule has been specified as Q1 2014, so we may not need to wait long.

One Piece: Romance Dawn RPG to be Released in North America

Despite initial announcements that there are no plans to release the 3DS version of One Piece: Romance Dawn RPG for the US, Namco Bandai has just announced the game’s release for the North American market this holiday season.

In most cases, publishers and developers going back on their word are usually met with criticism from gamers, but in cases like this, nobody will be complaining as the NA market is frequently passed over when it comes to localization of many high profile anime-related videogames (as opposed to the EU market, which sometimes gets their own localized versions).

Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers Makes its Way to North America in November

We have previously complained about Namco Bandai’s M.O. of skipping over North America when it comes to English releases of their Saint Seiya-based videogames (starting from the two fighters on the PS2, which got PAL releases). Now, it seems like we were wrong about Namco Bandai, and we couldn’t be more happier about it, as it’s been announced that the latest Saint Seiya fighter, Brave Soldiers, will be coming to North America in November as a Playstation Network Exclusive.
