Space Ace Comes to Blu-ray and HD DVD April 8th

SAPair.jpgFollowing up on last year’s Blu-ray and HD DVD remakes of Dragon’s Lair, Digital Leisure is now set to release an HD-remastered Space Ace to the two rival disc formats, both of which will hit retail on April 8th. Both versions will share much of the same content — full-length picture-in-picture commentary, interviews, 1080p visuals, 5.1 surround sound, etc. — however, the HD DVD version will feature internet-based functionality as part of an exclusive “Leisure Online” mode. Not quite sure I get why this content is only on the waning HD DVD, especially with Blu-ray recently beginning to assert itself as the dominant format, but it’s no biggie.
