Less than a week away from the launch of the first HD-DVD players and discs, Universal has at last officially announced its first next-gen DVD title offerings. The news comes only a day after the trade press began reporting that details on the studio's first HD-DVD titles had begun to leak out via online retailers.

The studio will release the 'Firefly' big-screen spin-off 'Serenity' on the format April 18, followed by 'Apollo 13' and an unrated 'Doom' on April 25. Each disc will retail for a suggested list price of $34.99.

Though Universal has yet to announce disc details on tech specs and bonus features, the studio has issued the box cover art for all three titles. Each utilizes the same key art as the current standard DVD releases, though those white swooshes are rather nifty:
