They have been teasing this on Twitter this past week - Discotek Media have a panel at this years Otakon anime convention, and they have announced a bunch of new Lupin for the US (sorry, no blue jacket show though!)

First up is news on the complete series of Lupin Part II:

The DVD set will release in four parts (which is cool, because the series itself contains 155 episodes spanning four seasons, one started in 1977, two in 1978, three in 1979 and four in 1980.) Collection one releases this December with collections two to four coming later in 2017.

Secondly, we have some news on the US release of TV special "Island of Assassins":

The feature film will hit both DVD and Blu-Ray in the US sometime next year, in 2017, with both discs part of the same combo pack (similar to the recent Discotek "Voyage to Danger" release.)

Discotek now jump to the 2000's, with an announcement of 2003's "Operation Return the Treasure":

The 90 minute film will be releasing on DVD only sometime this year. We would expect a confirmed release date to drop sometime in the coming months.

If you were lucky enough to attend the panel, we hope you had lots of fun! A big thanks to Reed Nelson for posting up these updates, as they happened, over on the Lupin the 3rd.com Twitter account.
