If you have been following Akira Himekawa’s Facebook page, you may have seen that a new Zelda manga is in the works, and this time it’s Twilight Princess‘ turn to receive the artistic touch from the duo. A few days ago, the release date for this much anticipated manga was revealed — for Japanese readers, at least. This date has been revealed to be June 24.

The duo that make up Akira Himekawa have stated that besides the release date, they are not able to release further information until the publishers do so themselves, and the same goes for information for an overseas release date. In fact, they ask for overseas fans to wait until a publisher of their own respective country makes an announcement, instead of waiting to hear it directly from the manga duo.

Some preview art has been released in the past, so if you can’t wait until the manga is out in your country, then perhaps use those images to satiate your greedy desire for it. Until then, we will just have to patiently wait until publishers in our countries deicide to bring it to us translated. Hopefully the wait shall not be long!

    Considering Viz releases the Zelda manga under their Viz Kids label, and that this manga is based on a T-rated game, I have doubts that this will ever see west side.
