It's a title we know a lot of you are excited about and we are proud to bring you our unboxing in the form of photos - we'll try and bring you a video unboxing at a later date - of Giovanni's Island - Ultimate Edition. Being released this Monday (12th January 2015) on DVD, Blu-ray and Ultimate Edition DVD+Blu-ray.
We can confirm that on day of release HMV branches across the UK will be stocking all three versions (DVD, Blu-ray and Ultimate Edition) of Giovanni's Island. Of course you'll also be able to order it from the likes of Amazon UK and other online retailers as well.
Check out the trailer below (and feel free to share it too!)
In terms of on-disc content, it's same on each disc regardless of whether you opt for the DVD, Blu-ray or Ultimate Edition (which contains both the DVD and Blu-ray discs.)
The main difference between the versions is the physical presentation (i.e. the size of the DVD/Blu-ray cases, the Ultimate Edition packaging) and the art used on the discs themselves. So please note that the disc art included on the individual DVD/Blu-ray differs to what's included in the ultimate version. Also keep in mind the Ultimate Edition is limited to 1000 units only! So once they're gone, they're gone.
Have a look through the pictures below to see what to expect if you purchase the Ultimate Edition. (Click on the photos below to enlarge them.)
NOTE: On the images relating to the sketch book, you will see a varied colour tone on the red cover and 'sketch marks' on some pages of the pages. This is part of the design and not a fault with the product.
We hope you enjoyed this preview of the Ultimate Edition of Giovanni's Island. Do let us know if you'll be buying this - we'd love to hear your thoughts.

This time, cost-wise it made sense for a straight to standard edition DVD version too - we've included reversible covers and all the same video content across three DVDs for folks there!
It's slid from October to January pretty simply because approvals are complex so things had to be shuffled round. By the time everything was ready printers were in peak season alas so that's the soonest we could really move on it.
Hope folks enjoy the show and grab a copy when it's out in January!
