I like that they had to add in "For real this time"

That was Brady's idea. I was going to have it say "Coming in 2018 to BD and DVD" and then the brief send-off card saying "from Discotek Media" with the logo, but I didn't have the high-res logo art handy. So we reworked it. I thought it was a fun idea.

There will be more news to come about the features of the release, so stay tuned.

Discotek's has dubbed the movie: https://twitter.com/discotekmedia/status/1000157512874721280

I assumed they were gonna dub it. Its nice to have the Part IV cast do more Lupin, especially this one, I hope they had fun doing it.

Someone liked my Leisure Suit Larry joke, and Tony dubbed it that way, huh? :)

Kind of a crummy movie to dub, but I'm glad that cast is getting more work in Lupin features. I might get it just to review for a video.

Cool! I actually wasn’t planning to get this one since I don’t exactly love the movie, but with a dub from my favorite cast included, I’ll pick it up.

Even though I'm not a fan of the film I'm still glad to see it dubbed by the Part IV crew, I just hope this may lead to them finally dubbing the rest of Red Jacket to!

Gold of Babylon is now up for preorder with a release date of 27th Nov https://www.rightstufanime.com/Lupin-the-3rd-The-Legend-of-the-Gold-of-Babylon-Blu-ray

(Although annoyingly its blu ray only and not a combo set like the previous releases!  >:()

Yeah I'm kinda bummed at the BD only as well, I'll have to buy the DVD one when it comes out and make my own combo pack.

I suspect the general policy is: combo packs for stuff that's been on DVD for a while in the US, like the ex-Funimation specials have been,
 while brand-new releases get separated. Of course, DVDs are kinda on the way out in the anime market anyway, so who knows how much longer it will even be an issue. And Cagliostro didn't get a combo pack either, so obviously my guess at the policy isn't perfect.
