The Japanese release of The Cranberries’ Stars: The Best of Videos 1992- 2002 looms in uncertainty, as the Japanese release has just been delayed for the second time.
The Japanese release, which is being handled by Victor Entertainment, was originally slated for December 2002, but was delayed for unknown reasons. The DVD was then given a second release date of March 12, 2003, but it seems that even that date will not be met, and a new release date has yet to be determined.
The situation is eerily reminiscent of the original 2001 release of “Beneath the Skin” when releases in regions like Spain were continually pushed back until ultimately cancelled. However, shortly after their cancellations came the announcement of a “new version” of the DVD, which came a year and a half later in the form of “Beneath the Skin Version 2.”
Nothing extra has yet been announced for the Japanese release (if it does in fact release), but Asian releases of any kind tend to carry bonuses. Since this Japanese release seems to be the only Cranberries release on the radar in the immediate future, you can be sure to expect more coverage of it here on Zombieguide.
