Cinedigm’s Blu-ray Releases WILL Include Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, ZexalAugust 29, 2013 at 10:11 pm | Posted in Konami, Yu-Gi-Oh!, ZEXAL | 11 Comments
Yusei is coming… to Blu-ray!
A 4K Media rep on the official Yu-Gi-Oh! Facebook Fan Page confirmed today that Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal will get the Blu-ray treatment from Cinedigm.
This clarification comes hot on the heels of Monday’s press release from Cinedigm and 4K Media, which revealed that the duo plans on releasing over 600 episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! on DVD and Blu-ray, but which confusingly neglected to explain which series would be released on which format.
Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal happen to be the two series whose uncut, original Japanese versions have seen subtitled releases from 4Kids and 4K Media on Hulu. It is unlikely, however, that these Japanese versions will be released on BD for the reasons I already discussed in the previous post and expanded upon in the comments.
There is still no word on whether or not the 10th anniversary Bonds Beyond Time movie will also be released on BD, but given that UK received such a BD in mid-2011, it would be silly not to release that same product in the U.S. and Canada.
Numerous comments posted earlier on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Fan Page have already indicated that Cinedigm will not be releasing classic Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX on Blu-ray. A dose of common sense would have a told you the same thing. ;)
