Well Go USA is more than happy to oblige anyone with an affinity toward films of the Asian and action variety. Such is their speciality with their resumé including imports like the Police Story: Lockdown, Flash Point, Kundo, the upcoming home releases of Mojin: The Lost Legend and Roy Chow’s refurbished Wong Fei-Hung origin epic, Rise Of The Legend and this weekend’s release of Ip Man 3 to name a few.

Well, you can now add another to the list with Well Go bringing their latest efforts together on January 26 with Hi-YAH, for Playstation owners via cloud-based VUE service as per the new era of cord-cutting for online consumers.The following press release has more:
