DBZ: Raging Blast 2 to feature rare Dragon Ball OVA episode

Dragon Ball anime diehard fans have probably already seen a bootlegged version of 1993's Dragon Ball Z Side Story: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans -- but the rest of us can get our fix through the upcoming game Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2.

Publisher Namco Bandai announced this morning that copies of the game will feature a 30 minute version of the original video animation (OVA) episode that's been "reconstructed, re-scripted, and re-edited" just for the North American and European audience that never saw it. Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans takes place between episodes 195 and 196 in Dragon Ball Z continuity.

It's a nice bone to throw to the loyal fans that buy all the Dragon Ball games -- but should they continue the trend with future games, we're not sure what else they could run besides the new-ish movie, Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!
