North American video distributor Shout! Factory confirmed with ANN on Wednesday that it licensed Jim Terry Productions' compilation film versions of the Planet Robot Danguard Ace (Danguard Ace) anime. The company will release the collection on two discs with a 330-minute run time. The set is slated for November 19 for the retail price of US$19.97.

The 1977-78 anime series ran for 56 episodes in Japan. Jim Terry Productions licensed the series in 1980 and redubbed the film for American release under the Force Five umbrella, which included Gaiking, Starvengers (Getter Robo G), Grandizer (UFO Robo Grendizer), and Spaceketeers (Science Fiction Saiyuki Starzinger).

Shout! Factory previously released two other Force Five titles: Leiji Matsumoto's classic 1978-79 anime series Science Fiction Saiyuki Starzinger and Gaiking.
