Newcomer Asylum Home Entertainment has announced its debut high-def release, bringing the direct-to-video prequel 'Transmorphers: Fall of Man' to Blu-ray this June.

Originally released direct-to-video in 2007, the original, 'Transformers'-derivative 'Transmorphers' was a modest hit on DVD but has since earned a cult reputation amongst bad movie lovers.

Marking Asylum's entrance into the Blu-ray market, the indie will release the 2009 prequel 'Transmorphers: Fall of Man' on June 30, day-and-date with the DVD version.

Asylum has not yet provided us with tech or supplement details for its debut release, but we'll keep you posted on all their future announcements.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $24.98.
