It’s been a long wait, but the details are finally here as well as an official U.S. home-media release date!
Funimation’s U.S. site has revealed their pre-order page for the BD/DVD Combo + UV set, all available to order now for $26.24. The home video package will release in the United States on August 1st, 2017.
This surprise listing also came with full box-art (seen above). Strangely, however, the site only lists the following for special features, which seem immensely lackluster after the amount included with releases in other countries:
- Godzilla vs. the Nerds: Interview
Funimation has also given the film a Five Star rating, accompanied by the following synopsis:
When a massive, gilled monster emerges from the deep and tears through the city, the government scrambles to save its citizens. A rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster’s weakness and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower. But time is not on their side—the greatest catastrophe to ever befall the world is about to evolve right before their very eyes.
The pre-order page lists full product details for the film, giving the disaster/kaiju feature a TV-MA rating and also confirming that we will indeed be receiving an English language dub of the film:
Are you excited to own Shin Godzilla and watch it whenever you’d like? Or is this an easy pass for you? Either way, we’re thrilled for all the fans who have been waiting patiently (and impatiently, like us) for this release to be announced!
