Just in time for its 25th anniversary, Ghost in the Shell is getting a 4K Ultra HD rerelease. On September 8th, you’ll be able to buy Mamoru Oshii’s landmark film in a beautiful collection that will let you watch the 1995 feature across multiple formats.

Lionsgate has remastered both the original Japanese and English audio tracks for Dolby Atmos. There’s also support for Dolby Vision HDR. Included in the release is a digital copy of the movie. For good measure, you also get the film on Blu-ray. Special features include new audio commentaries from English scriptwriter Mary Claypool and Richard Epcar, who voices Batou in the dub. Best Buy will sell an exclusive steelbook version of the release that features the art of artist Orlando Arocena.

More than merely being an anime classic, Ghost in the Shell is a cultural touchpoint. Not only did it spawn multiple sequels, offshoots and a not very good live-action remake, but it also inspired the Wachowskis when they went to create The Matrix. It came at a time when the internet was just starting to change every facet of our world and it asked questions that still resonate today.

The entire set will set you back $23 (it’s currently listed at $19.29 on Amazon, while the steelbook is $19.99 + $3.99 shipping at Best Buy), a modest sum to own a masterpiece if you ask us.
