Posted Fri Jul 27, 2007 at 09:13 AM PDT by

Universal has released the final details for its highly-anticipated HD DVD release of 'Heroes: Season One,' and as promised, it will come jam-packed with extras.

As we've previously reported, the studio had previewed at the Home Media Expo, but it held off on revealing full details until this week's Comic-Con show in San Diego.

Well, the show is here, and so are complete details on the 'Heroes' HD DVD. According to a new press release from Universal, the seven-disc HD DVD set will feature all of the supplements from the standard-def release (including a never-before-seen 73-minute version of the premiere episode, fifty Deleted and Extended scenes, and various featurettes), plus a suite of high-def extras.

Included among the HD DVD exclusives will be a Picture-in-Picture Cast & Crew Commentary (on eight episodes); a "Character Connections" feature, which will allow viewers to isolate scenes featuring their favorite Heroes; an interactive "Helix Revealed" to help fans spot the hidden symbol as it appears in scenes from the show; plus an Artwork Presentation, providing the ability to examine art from the show in detail.

As Universal's first "connected title," the 'Heroes: Season One' HD DVD will also feature several web-enabled features, including a Download Center, which will enable users to download exclusive trailers, clips and other content directly to their HD DVD players; and a Genetic Abilities Test, which will allow fans to create their own Heroes profile and upload it to the Heroes/ website to unlock yet more exclusive content.

Universal's 'Heroes'-related activities at Comic-Con don't end with this press release. The studio has set up a booth on the Comic-Con floor, where it is demo-ing the HD DVD's various features for fans, and as we've previously reported, a panel with the cast and crew is planned for Saturday. Needless to say, we'll let you know when/if any more details on this highly anticipated HD DVD release emerge.
