After having trouble releasing its films with other distributors (Warner Home Video, Fox, Lorimar, etc.), Troma Entertainment created its own distribution company in 1995 under the label Troma Team Video and Class of Nuke 'Em High 3 was advertised as the company's first major release on VHS. Held back for a year and only released on video, Class of Nuke 'Em High 3 became legendary not for its content, but for what it represented — that the company had taken a huge step forwards in labeling and marketing its own films.
After a couple of years as one of its biggest sellers, Class of Nuke 'Em High 3 went out of print, and with the decline of video, Troma Entertainment decided not to re-release it because — despite being highly popular with fans — it felt that the film itself was inferior to some of its other titles.
In the middle of the 2000s, Troma released a Class of Nuke 'Em High box set, which featured the original 1986 film in the same DVD format it had had since 1997 and Class of Nuke 'Em High 2 which had just recently been released on its own. For years, the box set was the only way of being able to buy the third film on DVD. However, in early 2010, alongside a re-release of the 1986 film by the Troma Retro label, the third film was released separately.

Famous quotes containing the word release:
“We read poetry because the poets, like ourselves, have been haunted by the inescapable tyranny of time and death; have suffered the pain of loss, and the more wearing, continuous pain of frustration and failure; and have had moods of unlooked-for release and peace. They have known and watched in themselves and others.”
—Elizabeth Drew (18871965)
“The steel decks rock with the lightning shock, and shake with the
And the sea grows red with the blood of the dead and reaches for his spoil
But not till the foe has gone below or turns his prow and runs,
Shall the voice of peace bring sweet release to the men behind the
—John Jerome Rooney (18661934)
“The near touch of death may be a release into life; if only it will break the egoistic will, and release that other flow.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
