It's an exciting time to be a Macross fan!

2022 is the Macross franchise's 40th Anniversary, and with the roadblocks to international distribution torn down earlier this year we're starting to see the first few global releases and plans for the franchise's worldwide presence going forward. The Macross Galactic Launch Ceremony 2021 event last month had several announcements about releases in the near future. Since it hasn't been posted here yet, I figured I'd share a few highlights.


Macross soundtracks on Streaming
Starting November 21st, music from the soundtracks of Macross II: Lovers Again, Macross Plus, Macross Seven, Macross Zero, Macross Frontier, Macross Delta and other titles are now available worldwide on most popular streaming services including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music Unlimited, and YouTube Music (fmrly. Google Play Music).


Bandai DX Chogokin Toys to be released worldwide
Bandai/Tamashii Nations will be releasing its first global DX Chogokin Macross toys starting in April 2022 with a special commemorative "Worldwide" edition.

The first release, planned for April 2022, is a Worldwide Anniversary edition of the VF-25F Messiah from Macross Frontier.


Fathom Events limited engagement: Macross Plus MOVIE Edition

In partnership with Fathom Events, there is going to be a limited theatrical showing of Macross Plus: the Movie in theaters around the US on December 14th!

Nothing yet. Amazon has been messing about with the availability of some books for international shipping, which may be an early sign that licensing is being worked out for some of them.

It's unconfirmed, but some folks did some digging around on the Atom Films website and there are some tantalizing hints we may be getting a theatrical release of DYRL.

Recently announced, the Macross 40th Anniversary Super Dimension Collaboration album Deculture!! Mixture!!!!! will be released on April 6th.

Deculture!! Mixture!!!!! is a cover album featuring Macross Frontier songstresses May'n (Sheryl Nome) and Megumi Nakajima covering five songs by Macross Delta idol group Walkure, and the five members of Walkure - JUNNA (Mikumo), Kiyono Yasuno (Kaname), Nozomi Nishida (Makina), Nao Toyoma (Reina), and Minori Suzuki (Freya) - covering five songs from Macross Frontier. Three of each set of five songs were chosen from last summer's Super Dimension Collaboration Song Election!!!!!!! poll, with the other two being the most iconic songs of their respective shows. The album also includes a new arrangement of the iconic song "Do You Remember Love?" performed by all seven vocalists.

May'n and Megumi will be covering:
  • Forbidden Borderline
  • Our Battlefield
  • Ruin of a Pure Heart
  • Giraffe Blues (May'n solo)
  • Uncertainty ☆ COSMIC MOVEMENT (Megumi solo)

Walkure will be covering:
  • Wings of Goodbye ~ End of the Triangle
  • Lion
  • Afterschool Overflow
  • Universal Bunny
  • Northern Cross

The album is already available for preorder in regular and limited editions on several Japanese direct-sale sites.
