It’s an announcement that was hoping to be officially unveiled at the MCM Expo this weekend, but word has got out early (thanks in part to a listing that appeared on Play.com today) that Manga Entertainment will be releasing the classic movie Ninja Scroll on Blu-Ray in the UK later this year, October 15th to be precise. What’s more is that is will be a UK exclusive limited edition steelbook version.
Manga said on their twitter that the link went up early but they can confirm it’ll be released on October 15th in the UK. For inspired this decision release it on Blu-Ray they said “We want to re-release [one] classic anime movie a year on [Blu-Ray] and inside a ltd ed steelbook. AKIRA sold really well last year.”
It will be released as DVD/Blu-Ray combo double pack, however when it comes to the overall presentation Manga UK seem to have special on the cards. They added “We won’t reveal the design until late June. We plan on doing something a bit flash.”
Expect more news on this surface following the London Expo this weekend.
