It looks like the fallout from Toei Animation’s recent hacka fans never saw coming. After all, Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes is now affected by the ongoing investigation. A new report from Toei Animation confirms that the highly anticipated film is pushing back its release date indefinitely, and it’s unclear when the film will go live now.
The update comes from the official dragonball website as anime team broke the stunning news. According to the opinion, Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes pushes back its April release date in Japan. Obviously, this means that its release window in the United States and other international markets will also be changed. At this time, no new release date has been decided, but the studio says it will update fans when locked down.
For those unfamiliar with the situation at Toei Animation, the studio was targeted by hackers earlier this month. The unauthorized access allegedly exploited several internal systems, and a host of production delays have already emerged from its investigation. Digimon and A play delayed a slew of new episodes in light of the hack, but other shows like Dragon Quest: Dai’s Adventure
weren’t so lucky.
With the studio hack under investigation, there’s no way to know if Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes was directly affected by the ordeal. Toei Animation has not said one way or another if any internal files were damaged during the hack. Of course, fans admit they never saw this kind of fallout from the hack when it was first made public. But now it looks like the situation is more precarious than netizens believed.
If you live in the United States, this delay probably means Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes will have to change its original output window. Toei Animation previously said the film would premiere in global markets this summer after debuting in Japan in April. However, it looks like the timeline for everything has now passed. ComicBook.com will keep you posted on when the movie will be released, so stay tuned for more information.
