posted on by Egan Loo
A billboard at the Chūō Dōri road in Tokyo's Akihabara district is revealing on Thursday that a "Joint Operation" is launching between Keitarō Takahashi's Jormungand manga/anime and the American first-person shooter game Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The October issue of Shueisha's Monthly Sunday GX magazine had revealed on Wednesday that a collaboration between Jormungand and an unnamed, "hugely popular" game is in the works.
The manga about a female arms dealer and her accomplices ended this year, and Viz Media will publish the 10th of its 11 volumes in North America next January. The manga already inspired an anime season that aired earlier this year, and the second season, Jormungand Perfect Order, will premiere on October 10.
Update 2: A website has launched for the collaboration:
