VAP is digging into its library a bit more for a new Japanese UHD 4K release with the Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro film. It’s set for a July 24th, 2019 release priced at 7,800 yen and now VAP has brought out a 2-minute promo that shows off the differences in versions and what the 4K release is like. It’s a single disc set that includes a 4K HDR vs 4K SDR video and a booklet. It includes the Japanese 2.0 PCM and 5.1 2017 remix audio as well.
Plot Concept: In the twilight of his career, master thief Lupin the Third’s latest and greatest caper has hit a snag. What should’ve been bags of cash from a national casino turns out to be expert counterfeits! Together with his partner-in-crime Jigen, Lupin heads to the remote European nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge.
Not everything goes as planned; the two encounter Clarisse, a royal damsel in distress being forced to marry the sinister Count Cagliostro against her will. Saving her won’t be easy, however, as Lupin and Jigen – together with Lupin’s unpredictable ex-girlfriend Fujiko and the swordsman Goemon – must fight their way through a trap-filled castle, a deadly dungeon, and an army of professional assassins! Can Lupin rescue the girl, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of The Castle of Cagliostro?
