IDW Games will produce a new collection of games tied to Dragon Ball Z, according to an announcement from Toei Animation Inc. and FUNimation Entertainment, which handle U.S. licensing for the Dragon Ball properties.  The games will be in the non-collectible board, tile-laying and dice game categories.

This is the latest in a series of moves for the property in the games space this year as the new anime series, Dragon Ball Super, reaches U.S. viewers.  USAopoly is skinning multiple games, including Yahtzee and Monopoly, with Dragon Ball Z this year (see “New Game Products from USAopoly”).

Panini America halted production of its Dragon Ball Z TCG last fall (see “’Dragon Ball Z TCG’ Ceases Production”), and Bandai Japan announced that it was bringing its Dragon Ball Super TCG to the U.S. directly, rather than through a licensee (see “The ‘Dragon Ball’ Universe Returns in New TCG”).
