Samurai Warriors Blu-ray Cancelled; Will Now Be Released as DVD-Only

samurai-warriors-main

Manga Entertainment UK have recently confirmed on social media that their Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack version of Samurai Warriors has been cancelled and that the series will now be released as a DVD-Only set.

Previously Manga Entertainment UK had announced that Samurai Warriors would be released as a Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack, which surprised a variety of people due to FUNimation’s planned DVD-only release of the series; well after much confusion and several months of delays the series has now been demoted to a DVD-Only release.

Personally it’s an announcement I was waiting to happen; mostly due to Blu-ray Disc Masters not readily available for Manga Entertainment UK to use, which would mean that the UK distributor would have to produce their own disc masters – something which is not only ‘very costly’ but also time consuming and would most likely delay the release even further than it already has been. Sure enough it’s disappointing news; but from its makes sense seeing as no ‘western friendly’ Blu-ray assets exist.

Of course online retailers will be adjusting their listings and soon enough the set will appear to pre-order as an DVD-only release. In addition to this cancelation Manga Entertainment UK have confirmed that the series will be available from the 10th July 2017 within the UK.
