It must be a mistake since they also have Brazil listed for the same day.

Most likely, Criterion just pays them (and other studios) to release their movies. Just like with Traffic (recently out on HD-DVD via Universal).

Unlike some stereo remixes this one was enormously beneficial and aided the movie at every turn (the only reason it was in mono to begin with was because producer Dino DeLaurentiis didn't want to pay for it!).
It would be a crime -- and a crushing disappointment -- if Universal's new CONAN in HD didn't include that stereo track and we were left with the pinched mono original theatrical mix instead. Here's hoping...but since Universal's American DVD was the only place that didn't offer it, I'm not holding my breath.
