Fullmetal Alchemist Blu-ray Movie Double Pack Delayed Until December

Manga Entertainment UK have today confirmed that the Blu-ray Movie Double Pack, which features both Fullmetal Alchemist – The Conqueror of Shamballa and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Sacred Star Of Milos on Blu-ray has been delayed until December 2012.

According to MangaUK’s Twitter account the reason for the delay is due to a production issue with the Conquerer Of Shamballa Blu-Ray, thus the whole boxset has been pushed back until December, so that the problem can be resolved.

FYI: The Blu-Ray version of the Fullmetal Alchemist movie double pack has been delayed until December. This is due to a production issue with the Conquerer Of Shamballa Blu-Ray specifically. The DVD version of the double pack and the individual DVD and Blu-Ray of Sacred Star Of Milos are unaffected and are still set for release on September 3rd. ^JG

This means that in December 2012, Manga Entertainment UK will be releasing Fullmetal Alchemist – The Conquerer Of Shamballa as a standalone disc and as a Movie Double Pack at the same time.

The Release of the DVD Movie Double Pack and the single Blu-ray release of Sacred Star Of Milos have been unaffected and will still be released on the 3rd September 2012 within the UK.
