The original hero in a half-shell returns this summer, as Arrow Video has announced and unveiled Gamera: The Complete Collection, which collects all twelve tales in one deluxe, 8-disc Blu-ray boxset for the first time ever worldwide!
The collection is now up for pre-order and will release in the United Kingdom on July 27th, 2020 and a day later in the United States and Canada on July 28th.
"This limited edition collectors’ set traces the decades-long evolution of Gamera, from the 'friend of all children' in his more light-hearted earlier films, to the Guardian of the Universe in the groundbreaking 1990s reboot series, often hailed as three of the best kaiju films ever made."
