Silver Hawk release date?

DDDHouse has the release date for the Silver Hawk DVD as being 4-15 which is this Thursday, but YesAsia and DVDAsian don't even list it at all, which would be strange if it were coming out in just two days. So what's the deal here? Anybody know for sure when the release date is?

Maybe Tai Seng snagged the distribution rights so sites like yesasia and dvdasian can't sell the HK version here until Tai Seng slaps their sticker on it.

I've reviewed a few of these in my review threads...

Running on Karma is okay, IA 1 is good, IA 2 is awesome, haven't watched 3 yet, but I hear it's not as good. PTU alot of people like, but I didn't much care for it. Versus is a great low-budget zombie flick. Haven't seen ID4 or zipang.

Of those, I have seen IA I, II, and III, and versus

I really liked IA I and II, and I thought III was good, but not as good as the first two.

Versus was above average, but could have been better. It's still an enjoyable movie. I prefer Azumi over Versus any day.

Running on Karma and PTU are just awesome, PTU being one of the best movies from 2003, although this comes from a huge Johnnie To fan. I've only seen Infernal Affairs. It won a bunch of awards and deserved every single one of them. If you get 1, get 2 and 3 just to complete the set. Versus is so much fun. There hasn't been a movie this fun in a LONG time. Yeah, Azumi is is the better movie 'cause Kitamura had more money is the movie is so much more polished, but Versus is completely passionate and has this incredible energy to it.

Haven't seen Silver Hawk but it's in my next dddhouse order. I'm a big Michelle Yeoh and Jingle Ma fan so I'm happy it's being released. Reviews weren't very good, but Mrs. Yeoh wants to make a sequel. Don't know about Zipang... ID4? Independence Day? Typical American sci-fi flick.

It came out on DVD in R2 Japan (with English subtitles) at the end of last November.

Edit:
Amazon Japan still has the Limited Edition set (for Azumi)

If any of you are curious about Azumi 2, here is the link for you. Looks interesting since Aya Ueto is teaming up with Chiaki Kuriyama, but I am not sure about it since Kitamura is not directing it. I'll still look into it though.
