My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission arrived in U.S. movie theaters back in October, and fans of the anime have been waiting to hear about a DVD and Blu-ray release date ever since. The film received a digital release in Japan earlier this year, and U.S. fans finally know when they can snag a copy. It looks like the World Heroes’ Mission DVD and Blu-ray will arrive just ahead of My Hero Academia Season 6. Additionally, exclusive editions will be available.
‘My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission’ gets DVD and Blu-ray release date in the U.S.
On May 16, Crunchyroll announced its home video lineup for 2022, revealing the U.S. release date for the My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission Blu-ray and DVD in the process. Physical copies of the film will hit shelves on August 23. That’s nearly a year after its theatrical release in the U.S.
And fans will no doubt be thrilled to reunite with Deku and the gang, especially with a longer-than-usual wait between My Hero Academia Seasons 5 and 6. This gives them a chance to watch the third film before season 6 arrives. And collectors will want to keep an eye out for the Best Buy and Walmart exclusive editions of the DVD and Blu-ray set.
Best Buy and Walmart exclusive editions available on the same release date
In addition to dropping the U.S. release date for My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission‘s DVD and Blu-ray, Crunchyroll also revealed that Best Buy and Walmart will offer exclusive editions of the film.
The Best Buy DVD and Blu-ray set will come in a SteelBook featuring Deku, Rody, and Pino on the cover. Bakugo and Todoroki appear on the back, making this a nice addition to any collection. And fans can already pre-order World Heroes’ Mission on Best Buy’s website. As of this writing, both the regular and exclusive editions are available.
Instead of a SteelBook, the Walmart exclusive edition comes with a Deku FiGPiN. Falling somewhere between a figurine and a pin, the collectible will no doubt look nice standing next to the DVD and Blu-ray.
Both special editions come out on April 23, and those eager to get their hands on them should act quickly.
‘My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission’ hits shelves ahead of season 6
Fans still have a ways to go before the DVD and Blu-ray release date for My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission arrives. Fortunately, it will get here ahead of the anime’s sixth season. The story is unrelated to My Hero Academia’s main plot, but it will still make a nice segue into the new episodes. It certainly showcases how much Deku and his friends have grown.
My Hero Academia Season 6 arrives in October, but the anime has yet to receive a specific return date. With the movie coming out beforehand and the manga coming to an end soon, it looks like 2022 could prove a big year for the series. Plus Ultra, indeed.
