The Japanese version was released through a Meiji Chocolate promotion in February 2007. It was reprinted again in POP Series 6 with new artwork by Atsuko Nishida. The Japanese version was available as part of the Trade Please DP event held at venues hosting the 25th Next Generation World Hobby Fair in January and February 2007.
