posted on by Egan Loo
The North American publisher Viz Media will be releasing two more of Akira Himekawa's manga titles based on Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda games. The one-volume The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask manga will ship on February 3, 2009, while another one-volume work, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Zelda no Densetsu: Fushigi no Kinomi Daichi no Shou or The Legend of Zelda: The Mysterious Nut, Earth Chapter), will ship on April 7. The latter volume has a sequel called Zelda no Densetsu: Fushigi no Kinomi Jikuu no Shou (The Legend of Zelda: The Mysterious Nut, Space-Time Chapter), but there is no English-language release scheduled for that yet.
Viz has already revealed that it will release Himekawa's two-volume manga adaptation of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in October and December. Himekawa is actually a pen name for two creators who drew over half a dozen manga works based on this popular fantasy game franchise. They also drew manga adaptations of Legend of Crystania, Nazca, Astro Boy Tetsuwan Atom, and Brave Story.
