This is not a confirmed release as of yet as I've Entertainment are gauging interest first.

You'll see from the below screen shot - from their FB page here - that they're asking whether collectors would like to see the below artwork as a full slip only or as a SteelBook too, in which case the SteelBook would be released in Japan. If the SteelBook release doesn't happen, then this thread will be merged with the existing slipcover thread here.

A poll has been added to this thread and feel free to let I've Entertainment know your preference as well. The results of this poll will be shared with I've later.

i hope the text on the full slip front is only on the j-card :notworthy:

edit: a ninja scroll premium release would be nice :drool:
Is the bottom left picture what's underneath the card with the text, I wonder? I'm not sure how to read that set of four pictures, but I assume they're the four surfaces of steel and slip?

Looks like a regular O-ring slipcover rather than a full slip from the texts on the mockup, can anyone confirm?
I'm not seeing this. It looks like a normal fullslip to me, so far as we can see in the preview.

The bottom left are 4 cards inside the slip. Seeing as they're recycling the the other 3 pieces of art on the slip/steel, it does stand to reason that 4th art could be the rear of the slipcase.

"I've" are the same company who released the standard 4k set in Japan, which also came with a hard (not o-ring) slipbox. It looks suspiciously like this one, as does the booklet.

That release had a removable jcard, with a lip over the spine and bottom section of the front. So I expect any logo's and text on the front/lower spine/back here to be a removable jcard.

At first I was glad I didn't go for standard edition, but I'll still have to get US copy in order to swap the booklets. I wonder if the format is the same?

Anyway, this is must-have.

Tempted, especially as it'll only cost around £50. I've got the kimchi lenti and the german 4K though, so it'd be total overkill.
