Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions is slated to get a DVD and Blu-ray release in Japan on March 8, 2017. Pre-orders for the movie opened today, with three different versions up for sale:

  • Standard edition DVD, ¥5,800 (about $56)
  • Standard edition BD, ¥6,800 (about $66)
  • Limited edition BD, ¥18,000 (about $174)

The standard edition products include:

  • A Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG Palladium Oracle Mahad card, KC Ultra Rare version (included with the first production run only)
  • A leaflet
  • Kazuki Takahashi’s “Transcend Game Yu-Gi-Oh!” manga on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ app, accessible from March 8, 2017 to March 7, 2018. (This two-part story, originally published in Shueisha’s WSJ in April, connects the end of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga to the events of the movie.)
  • Video and audio bonus material

The limited edition BD includes all of the standard edition extras, plus:

  • A print version of Kazuki Takahashi’s “Transcend Game Yu-Gi-Oh!” manga
  • “Duelists’ Courageous Stance” key animation (genga)
  • Audio commentary by the cast
  • A Kaiba construction acrylic keychain
  • A Kudaragi Corps T-shirt

Pre-orders for the limited edition Blu-ray will be accepted until December 11. However, certain retailers, like Animate, Amazon Japan, HMV, and Tower Records, are participating in an early reservation campaign. Customers who pre-order from them early will receive a rolled B2-size poster (about 20″ x 28″), while supplies last.

And what about an English-language release on this side of the planet? On Facebook, 4K Media previously commented that a home video release “[s]hould follow a normal release schedule after the theatrical run.” While schedules obviously vary among different movies and studios, the window between the theatrical run and home video release has been dropping significantly in recent years… Stay tuned.
