Bandai today took to their official YouTube channel to share the news that Akira Toriyama’s massively-popular Dragon Ball series is going on North American tour later this year. The announcement was definitely very mysterious, being an English-language trailer aimed at North American audiences, yet also being uploaded to a Japanese YouTube channel… huh. Anyway, the first stop of the “Dragon Ball Tour” has been announced for San Diego, and will be taking place in July.
We wrote at length the other day about Toei Animation’s recent decision to open an all-new division exclusively focusing on the Dragon Ball property, so one could pretty easily piece this together as a result of that. Joining the North America Tour so far is Tamashii Nations, presumably where part of the “exclusive items” will be coming from.
A Dragon Ball event, the greatest of all time, is coming to the United States and Canada.
Consisting of 7 stops, starting from San Diego!!
Expect exclusive items and a one-of-a-kind experiences!
It’ll be exciting to see just what comes of all of this, especially with Dragon Ball Super coming to a close recently. With the little information we have, we’ll just have to wait and see what goes down in San Diego during the month of July. Further information can be found via the official website.
