Separately on DVD and Blu-ray in February 2012
In addition to confirming that a new Hayate no Gotoku anime is in the works, the 30th volume of Kenjiro Hata's Hayate no Gotoku manga, which went on sale yesterday, included a flyer revealing the first details of how fans can get their hands on the home video release of Hayate no Gotoku the Movie: Heaven is a Place on Earth.
First the entire 60 minute movie will be included on a DVD packed in with the limited edition of volume 31 of the manga. Volume 31's limited edition will be released on December 16th, 2011 for 2980 yen. Then in February of 2012, the movie will be released separately in deluxe Blu-ray and DVD editions which will contain "additional footage" of some sort. Further details about the DVD and Blu-ray release will be revealed on the official movie website at a later date.
The simultaneously released Mahou Sensei Negima: Anime Final is following the same pattern with volume 37 of the Mahou Sensei Negima manga including a DVD of the movie on February 17th, 2012.
