Chinese often comes divited into Mandarin or Cantonese.
Do you have a BD-Rom to use BD-Info Scan?
Google seems to identify these characters you posted as "japanese".
What does the Menue on the Disc say?

Maybe yesasia.com list of avaible languages on the disc helps:
Language: English, Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, DANISH, Thai, SWEDISH, NORWEGIAN, Icelandic, Finnish
Subtitles: English, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Bahasa (Indonesia), Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish

Mark,

The characters you posted are Japanese, not Chinese (Mandarin/Cantonese).

Standard Chinese, which is also referred to as "Mandarin", Pǔtōnghuà (simplified Chinese: 普通话; traditional Chinese: 普通話; literally "common speech") or Guóyǔ (Chinese: 國語; literally "national language"), is the official language of the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China, and one of the four official languages of Singapore.

Mandarin + Cantonese is spoken Chinese. Both are 2 Chinese dialects.
Written Chinese is either Simplified or Traditional Chinese - the spoken dialect doesn't matter, it's always written the same (that's the great thing about Chinese).

This is Mandarin in Traditional Chinese: 國語 (so yes, that's right)
And this is Cantonese in Traditional Chinese: 粵語

Where are you getting those from? The back cover? BluRay menu?

您好,中国的语言主要是以大陆普通话为主,即Mandarin,它在蓝光碟字幕中对应的有简体中文Mand arin(Simplified)和繁体中文(台湾)Mandarin(Traditional)两种形式 。中文简体字幕对应的语言称为“普通话”,繁体中文字幕(台湾)对应的在台湾被称为“国语”。而Canto nese指的是“粤语”,中国广东和香港等地区的地方性语言,对应的字幕名叫做繁体中文(香港),同Can tonese。

On Hollywood DVD/Blu-ray, there can be up to 3 different Chinese audio: Mainland China Mandarin (普通话), Taiwan Mandarin (國語), and Cantonese (粵語 or 廣東話). Depending on the movie studio, Mainland China may or may not share the same audio with Taiwan.
As for the subtitles, there can be up to 4 different versions: The one for Mainland China is the Simplified Chinese (简体中文) and is a translation of the English audio. The one for Hong Kong is in Traditional Chinese (繁體中文) and is generally a different translation of the English audio (each Chinese subtitle is created separately by different team of translators). What's interesting is that sometimes you may find two different Traditional Chinese subtitles for Taiwan, one is the dubtitle of the Taiwan Mandarin audio, and the other one is again a different translation of the English audio.

For Chinese movie discs, things can actually get messier.
