posted on by Egan Loo
Bandai Namco Games began streaming a special Macross Super Dimension Seminar short to outline the contents of "Macross Frontier the Movie 30th d Shudisuta b Box" set on Friday. "Instructor Sheryl Nome" offers the details:
The "Macross Frontier the Movie 30th d Shudisuta b Box" will ship on May 15 with English-subtitled discs. The set will include the films Macross Frontier: Itsuwari no Utahime and Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa on two discs, along with an intro sequence for the first film and a new "d Shudisuta b" ending sequence for the second film. (The intro was first shown during the first film's theatrical release, but neither the intro nor the new "d Shudisuta b" ending were included in the previous home video releases.)
The box's third disc will be the "Project F Ultimate Hybrid Disc" with never-before-released material: the "Macross Frontier the Movie Special Play View," the "Macross Frontier Video Historia" that is over 120 minutes long, "Instructor Sheryl's 30th Anniversary Movie Document," "Super Galaxy-Class voice cast interviews," and the virtual "Macross Frontier Super Dimension Super Live ~PS Home kara Ai o Komete~" concert from new camera angles. The Play View feature requires a PlayStation 3 system.
This bonus disc will also have previously released material, such as the 24-episode "Macross Intelligence Agency" with bonus episodes, Macross Frontier-related commercials, the interview before the first film in which Shoji Kawamori explains how the VF-25 transforms, and Megumi Nakajima's studio report from the first film. The box will bundle an A4-size Macross Frontier the Movie design/art collection and an A4-size Macross Frontier the Movie promotional illustration collection, each about 100 pages long.
The Blu-ray Disc version of the box will cost 16,800 yen (about US$168), while the DVD version will cost 14,800 yen (US$148). Namco Bandai Games is releasing the boxes through game retailers.
