*UPDATE (13/08/16): Tokyopop have revealed they will be handling the publication and release of the German version of the Twilight Princess manga and that Volume 1 of 4 will be releasing this year, on the 17th of November. The manga will cost €6.50 and there are also plans in motion for Spanish and French versions.
Having already released Volume 1 of the Twilight Princess manga in Japan, back in June, we have been desperately waiting for news of a western release date and now thanks to Viz Media, we’ve finally got a release month!
During the Otakon panel, Viz Media announced that they do in fact have the license to Takako Shimura’s Sweet Blue Flowers, Kyousuke Motomi’s Queen’s Quality and of course Akira Himekawa’s Twilight Princess manga. Now since we’re a Nintendo site, we’re only going to actually going to be focus on talking about the Zelda manga, so if you are interested in learning about what was said regarding the other works, be sure to click here. So when will Volume 1 of Twilight Princess be releasing? Well for starters, it will be next year and it will be sometime in March, the very same month the NX and Breath of the Wild are still “confirmed” for release.
Naturally there has been no word on any Volume 2 information revealed for both the West and Japan, but should March be too far away for you to wait, starting in November Viz Media will also be publishing the first instalment of the English version of Himekawa’s The Legend of Zelda: Legendary Edition series. An omnibus collection, which sees the likes of 10 of their previous Zelda works rereleased with new covers, coloured artwork and larger printing format. The very first work in this series of five will be Ocarina of Time Volumes 1 & 2 and you can expect to pick this up on the 1st of November.
Sure you may already have the original mangas published by Viz Media, but each of the new volumes come at an affordable price and are something a Zelda fan does need in their life.
