When does Shin Godzilla come out on DVD/BluRay?

Does anyone know when Shin Godzilla will be released on DVD/BluRay? I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. I sure FUNimation will be able to bring the DVD/BluRay to America since they handled distributing it in theaters here. But still, does anyone have a clue about the release date?

I'm not sure, but my guess would be some time in the first half of 2017.

FUNimation is handling the DVD/Blu-ray distribution and potentially the dubbing for Shin Godzilla. However, historically, it will not be released until a few months after Toho's DVD/Blu-ray release in Japan. (Such as it has been for years.)

For reference, the live action Attack on Titan movies were released in February and March on DVD/Blu-ray in Japan. They did not hit American DVD/Blu-ray from Funimation until October. (Part II will be released this December.)

That's an eight month gap between the Japanese home video release and the American home video release. We may be looking at something similar for Shin Godzilla. So unless a deal can be made, we likely have a long wait ahead of us.

Thank you Gman2887. You are very knowledgable on these types of things. Thank you for giving me an idea about how long the wait might be.

Very welcome. Keep in mind I'm only going off of what's happened in the past. If Funimation is eager to get it on home video sooner and can entice Toho with some sort of deal, perhaps we could see it a little earlier.

But I doubt we'll get a release on DVD/Blu-ray before Japan does. That's just a bad business move otherwise. And who knows when that will be since the film is still playing in some theaters in Japan.

^Really? Wow! Shin Godzilla is doing incredibly well if it is still in some Japanese theaters.

Shin Godzilla is currently the highest grossing, live-action, Japanese-made film in three years and the #5 most attended film in the Godzilla series. It will finish 2016 as the #3 highest grossing film in Japan. (That includes Hollywood releases in Japan and animated films which are normally more popular. #1 for 2016 is Your Name [anime] and #2 is Star Wars: The Force Awakens.)

It's currently starting to rack up some awards. Here's its attendance numbers compared to the rest of the Godzilla series:
