Tokyo — The Fuji TV network will release its biggest hit from last year, cop thriller “Bayside Shakedown 3,” simultaneously on DVD and as a download on iTunes on Feb. 2.

Released in July by Toho, “Bayside Shakedown 3” took $89 million at the box office, making it the third highest-earning Japanese film of the year.

The DVD release of the pic, including a Blu-ray version, will cost from $48.66 to $176.71 while the iTunes downloads will be priced from $24.39 to $30.49.
