The manga based on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has been going strong since the start of 2016. Soon, however, it will be coming to an end.

Manga creator duo Akira Himekawa confirmed that the series is drawing to a close on Twitter. Following the release of its next chapter, the series will be finished. This follows the manga going into its last arc last December. Then this past September, it received its tenth volume.

Starting in 2017, a manga based on Splatoon 2 from Hideki Goto was published in CoroCoro. Viz Media will now start to release an English version next month.

Here’s a brief overview:

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

This month’s issue of CoroCoro Comics has revealed that Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be receiving a new manga series. The first part will be published in the magazine’s next edition in June.

Kokonasu Runpa will be drawing the serialization. Runpa also drew a one-shot manga for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons manga, which can be found in the current issue of CoroCoro Comics.

A localization of the manga series has yet to be confirmed.


Update (4/6): This is now up for pre-order on Amazon Canada. Meanwhile, for whatever reason, it’s now unavailable on Amazon US – we’ll let you know if that changes.

Original (3/31): The Super Mario-kun manga has been ongoing in Japan since 1991. While the series has never been localized into English previously, that’ll be changing this year.

Viz Media has announced that it will offer an English version under the name “Super Mario Bros. Manga Mania”. Rather than releasing individual volumes, it sounds like we’ll instead be receiving a highlights compilation.

Here’s an official description:

We won’t have to wait much longer for the first issue of the Splatoon manga. It should be debuting on December 12, with the European release following soon after.

Amazon has the issue up for pre-order here. You can also reserve it on Amazon Canada here. According to Amazon UK, the first Splatoon manga arrives on January 11.

VIZ Media has announced that it will be localizing the Splatoon manga. It will debut in late 2017.

VIZ passed along the news on Twitter:

Originally, the Japanese publication CoroCoro hosted the Splatoon manga, which began in 2015. A new manga based on the franchise will premiere in its June issue.


CoroCoro has announced that a new manga based on Splatoon is on the way. This will be kicking off with the magazine’s June issue, releasing on May 15. The May issue comes with a full-color preview chapter for the manga.

As for the March edition of CoroCoro, that has a pamphlet with a one-shot manga adaptation of Splatoon 2. Sankichi Hinodeya, who is leading the way on the new manga, drew the one-shot. You can view the full pamphlet with the one-shot manga online here.

Update: Bumped to the top. Bear with us as we try to explain this.

Fire Emblem Fates is getting a manga after all starting with the March issue of Ichijinsha’s Monthly Comic Zero Sum out on January 28. It’s called Fire Emblem if: Nibelung no H?kan (Fire Emblem Fates: Crown of Nibelung), and focuses on the character Leo. Tama Yugy?ji will be drawing the series.

The manga Kozaki was involved with is still cancelled. We’re now less certain that Kozaki’s manga would have been for Fire Emblem Fates – it could have been for something else, despite what we heard last year.

In any case, the point is that Fire Emblem Fates will be receiving a manga next month. Kozaki’s manga remains cancelled / on hold. Hopefully that’s clear!

Thanks to KilleyMC for the tip.

Original: The Fire Emblem Fates manga was announced well over a year ago. However, it has yet to resurface since then. There seems to be good reason for that, as the manga has seemingly ran into some issues. It’s either been put on hold or outright cancelled.

Fire Emblem Fates artist Yusuke Kozaki was originally on board to draw illustrations. But on his Twitter account, he shared the following message:

“Regarding the Fire Emblem manga, due to various circumstances, right now the plans have essentially been suspended. Everyone who was looking forward to it, we are deeply sorry. Personally speaking, I would like to draw FE as a manga one way or another.”

Up until now, the Kirby Moretsu Pupupu Hour manga by Taniguchi Asami had been serialized in CoroCoro. However, it’ll be ending with the October 2016 issue of the magazine.

To replace that, a new Kirby manga series Manpuku Pupupu Fantasy by Takeuchi Ibuki will take over starting from the November 2016 issue. The next edition is due out on October 15.
