Trivia

  • The original printing of the game was an extremely low print run due to anime (Japanese animation) still not having a true foothold in America at the time. The game’s minimalist release created a frenzy in the used market, with prices jumping to as much as $99.99 at EB Games and Funcoland, with online auctions hitting $250. Thankfully the re-release has somewhat squashed the craze.
  • The game was so rare at the time that an anime fandom magazine gave away a used, not-new copy of the game as a sweepstakes prize.
  • With the eventual release of Ultimate 22 and the re-release of Final Bout, Atari and Bandai found the foothold they needed, and it’s been non-stop Dragon Ball ever since.
