No surprise that this was coming after it's brief theatrical tour late last year, but Kaneto Shindo's Kuroneko (Black Cat) (1968) along with a Blu-Ray upgrade of Harakiri (Seppuku) (1962).

Annouced via Masters of Cinema's Twitter, Masaki Kobayashi's anti-fuedalistic masterpiece, Harakiri (Seppuku) (1962), is getting a dual format release (Blu-Ray and DVD) in September. No specs have been announced yet, but for those not equipped with a region free player, this will surely be region B as the Japanese studios are notorious for always having their films always region locked.
