posted on by Egan Loo
The ICv2 retail industry news source reports that Tokyopop has licensed Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, Kou Sasakura's two-volume manga adaptation of the PlayStation 2 supernatural action game from Konami. The manga was released in Japan in 2005 and 2006 under the game's Japanese title, Akumajō Dorakyura: Yami no Juin. Like the game, the manga is set after Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (Akumajō Densetsu). Castlevania series producer Koji Igarashi supervised the manga, which is intended to depict plotlines that were left vague in the game. The manga focuses on two Devil Forgemasters, Hector and Isaac, after Hector tries to abandon his former malevolent life as Count Dracula's liege.
Tokyopop also gave further details on its next Warcraft graphic novel releases and previously announced Starcraft adaptation. A new four-volume Warcraft anthology title will start this August with stories by Richard Knaak and Jae-Hwan Kim (Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy), Mike Wellman, Dan Jolly, Carlos Olivares, Troy Lewter, and Brian Yang. Knaak will start another Warcraft adaptation in 2009. A three-volume Starcraft anthology will start this August. This Starcraft series will feature Josh Elder and Daniel Cross; Richard Knaak and Naohiro Washio; Paul Benjamin, Dave Shramek, and Nam Kim; and Simon Furman and Jesse Elliot.
