One word is awesome! That's how I describe this box-set, Arrow Video have really pulled out all the stops for Kinji Fukasaku's Battle Royale, this beast of a box-set is rammed to the rafters of glorious special features and is fully restored in High-Definition.

The DVD/Blu-ray box-set comes with 3-discs and one of the most intriguing aspects of this limited edition set is the inclusion of a 32 page comic book, how is awesome is that!

Arrow Video will release this epic 3-disc box-set on both Blu-ray & DVD in the UK on December 13, 2010.

You can pre-order the DVD at for £16.99 HERE and the Blu-ray for £17.99 HERE. IS it just me or is this freaking cheap? That's like the deal of the century!
