FUNimation Entertainment has revealed to IGN that it has a big announcement planned for this year's San Diego Comic-Con International. Namely, the anime company will be announcing that it has decided to release its first high-definition DVD product on Blu-ray disc. What title, you ask, will be the lucky recipient of this inaugural release? Dragon Ball Z!
"After seeing demos of each next generation platform, it was clear that the Blu-ray platform was ideal for FUNimation," says Ward Thomas, Senior Vice-President of Sales and Operations at FUNimation Entertainment. "The capabilities of the Blu-ray technology allows our fans to enjoy their favorite FUNimation titles like never before."
And after this debut release, FUNimation plans to start releasing high-definition versions of "some of its most popular catalog titles in the U.S."
