Later volumes to ship for only HD DVD-exclusive anime release in North America

Bandai Visual USA has released the following statement after Toshiba's announcement of HD DVD's discontinuation today:

In regards to Toshiba's news, we will continue to release future installments of Freedom on HD DVD/DVD Twin-Disc Format. We do not want to abandon our fans that have purchased Freedom 1-3. Retailers will soon stop carrying Freedom 1-3, but they will be available via our dot-anime.us (http://www.dot-anime.us) website along with the future installments.

Freedom is the only high-definition anime release in North America without a Blu-ray Disc or digital download version.

Update: Bandai Visual USA posted a Japanese commercial for the fourth Freedom volume.
