Arcane season to get 4K release in defiance to usual Netflix streaming plans

Netflix rarely greenlights physical media, especially considering it’s primarily a streaming service. Yet, in a surprising departure from its digital domain, it has approved a 4k and Blu-ray release of Arcane season one through GKIDS.

GKIDS is an American independent film distributor recognized for bringing diverse international films to North American audiences. It specializes in hand-drawn animations like those from Studio Ghibli. Now, it’s expanding its collection with Netflix’s hit series Arcane, based on League of Legends, joining its lineup of physical media.
