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.
