Haven’t done a news post for a very long time but this one should be of interest for fans of Makoto Shinkai’s works like myself.
We’ve known for a long time UK will be getting a dual format release of Kimi no Na wa in October since it’s been listed on Amazon UK for some time now but, now we have a release date for Japan’s version!
Judging by this blurry photo by @Chackn on Twitter Japan will be getting 3 versions including a 4K UHD Blu-ray release on July 26th. Early pre-orders will get a film strip bookmark.
The special “Collectors Edition” costing 12,000 Yen (£83) will include the 4K version (IMAX screenings used it) of the movie along with a regular 1K blu-ray disc.
I can only imagine all the extra details that will be in it when you consider how different the blu-ray release of 5cm was compared to the DVD release. Shame I don’t have a 4K player or screen to enjoy it for the time being =/
