Thanks to treatment for the heads up… ANN reports that Macross Plus will be released in bluray format in mid 2013. The box set will not only include both OVA series and the movie version, but it will also include the English dub along with many other extras such as a 100 page commentary book, staff interviews, commercials, promotional videos, previews, the Macross Festival trailer, and Macross Plus PlayStation game promotional video/opening movie/in-game footage.
I don’t think anyone can put it any better than the man Isamu Dyson himself… YAAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
The video highlights the various bonuses that will ship with the 30th Anniversary Box bundle, including a new code to download the The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? game from the PlayStation Store. The side-scrolling shooter game originally shipped for the PlayStation console in 1999. The 30th Anniversary Box will also have an all-color booklet, a miniaturized version of the theatrical pamphlet, a miniature poster collection, a mini pencil sketch collection, a box illustrated by Hidetaka Tenjin, an archive of animemagazines, and a strip of actual film.
The 30th Anniversary Box’s discs will include over 90 minutes of bonus footage, such as the first Blu-ray Disc release of the original video anime epilogue The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012. Other extras will include a discussion about the origins of the Macross series with creator/mechanical designer Shoji Kawamori and his design mentor Kazutaka Miyatake, a “Do You Remember Love? Flash Back 1984” documentary, the anime movies that were made for the Sega Saturn Do You Remember Love? game, the “Do You Remember the Taste?” ads and commericals of the past, the image board gallery, trailers, and special footage.
Namco Bandai Games will release the regular edition of the Hybrid Pack for 7,140 yen (about US$88), and the limited-edition 30th Anniversary Box will cost 13,800 yen (US$171). Both versions will ship in Japan on July 26.
