One of the most incredible Japanese animated features of all time, Akira, is set to return as we’ve never seen it before.

First there’s a planned run in Japanese IMAX cinemas – for which this ace poster has emerged:


More exciting than that, the new 4K remaster of Akira is set to hit 4K Ultra HD, in a lavish three-disc set (one 4K, two standard Blu-rays) featuring a bunch of exciting extras from behind-the-scenes footage to storyboard stills and more. We’re trying to confirm details of a local release – here’s hoping!

In the meantime, remember that the power of Akira exists in everyone!

Can’t wait? Get Akira on Blu-ray now at JB Hi-Fi.
