Urban Vision has sent out a press release announcing the February 2nd release of Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust on VHS and DVD for $19.95 and $29.95 respectively.

VHD: Bloodlust was originally expected to retail during the Christmas season, but the successful theatrical release no doubt caused some delays.

Also worth noting, the press release makes no mention of a Japanese track or English subtitles, confirming previous announcements from Urban Vision that the DVD would be English only.

Excerpts from Press Release:

‘D’ has been hired to track down Meier Link, a notoriously powerful vampire who has abducted a Human woman, Charlotte Elbourne. ‘D'’s orders are strict find Charlotte, at any cost. For the first time, ‘D’ faces serious competition. The Markus Brothers, a family of Vampire Hunters, were hired for the same bounty. ‘D’ must intercept Meier and conquer hostile forces on all sides in a deadly race against time. Despised by Vampires for his profession and by Humans for the blood in his veins, ‘D’ relentlessly pursues his prey… for a price.
