Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced it will bring 'Carlito's Way' and its direct-to-video sequel 'Carlito's Way: Rise to Power' to HD DVD this October.

Though not one of Brian DePalma's box office hits, 1993's 'Carlito's Way' went on to a garner a long shelf life on video, and is now considered to be one of the director's most underrated films. Universal followed it up twelve years later with the direct-to-video prequel, 'Carlito's Way: Rise to Power' (without DePalma's involvement).

The studio will debut both titles on HD DVD October 23, each a special edition sporting the same extras as their standard-def DVD counterparts. Among the goodies to be found on each will be multiple making-of featurettes, deleted scenes and trailers. The original 'Carlito's Way' will also include a still gallery.

Tech specs include 1080p/VC-1 transfers, and Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround tracks.

Universal has set a $29.98 list price for each.

We've added new listings for both 'Carlito's Way' and 'Carlito's Way: Rise to Power' to our HD DVD Release Schedule, under October 23. Stay tuned for box cover art to be revealed in the coming days.
