Bandai Visual Possibly Changing Course
Animeondvd.com is reporting that Bandai Visual Japan has released new specifications for the next generation DVD releases they have planned in Japan in 2007. The listing was first published in Watch Impress magazine. Akira, Wings of Honneamise, Patlabor Movie 1 and Patlabor Movie 2 are all listed as having an English language vocal track for the Japanese release.
Bandai Visual USA, which does not have the rights to all of the titles above, has said their releases will be similar to the Japanese releases, but has not confirmed whether their versions will include English dub tracks.
