The blood-soaked Japanese gorefest will splatter onto Blu-ray in February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA is prepping 'Yakuza Weapon' for a Blu-ray release on February 7.
Another warped film from the prolific Japanese production company Sushi Typhoon, 'Yakuza Weapon' is based on the cult manga by Ken Ishikawa and stars stuntman-turned-director Tak Sakaguchi as a one-man, butt-kicking army out to avenge the death of his father with built-in firepower.
Stuntman-turned-director, Tak Sakaguchi, directs himself as a hard-hitting maverick who returns to Tokyo, only to discover his Yakuza father murdered, his family headquarters turned into a shady loan shop, and a powerful gang leader attempting to overthrow the entire criminal underworld! With rival gangs jacked up on “hyperdrug,” he must becomes a one-man, butt-kicking army – and things only get wilder when he loses an arm and a leg, only to have them replaced with more firepower than the entire Japanese military possesses..
Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will be a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and supplements will include The Making of Yakuza Weapon featurette, Director's discussion, Tokyo stage greeting, Spinoff film: Takuzo Weapon, and Trailers.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
