Tokyopop Gets .hack//Link Game-Based Manga (Update 2)

posted on by Egan Loo
Tie-in to Bandai Namco PSP RPG, anime by .hack//XXXX's Megane Kikuya

The North American manga publisher Tokyopop has announced at its New York Anime Festival panel on Friday that it will publish the .hack//Link ~Tasogare no Kishidan~ manga by Megane Kikuya (.hack//XXXX). The manga ties into .hack//Link, the action role-playing game that Bandai Namco Games describes as the final chapter in the popular .hack franchise. The manga has been running in Kadokawa Shoten's Kerokero Ace magazine in Japan.

Bandai Visual is also producing a full-CG anime tie-in in Japan, while the game itself will ship in Japan in February. Tokyopop has published most of the other .hack manga, including .hack//G.U.+, .hack//XXXX, and .hack//4koma (shipping on April 6).

Update: More background information and image added.

Update 2: Title of .hack//Link ~Tasogare no Kishidan~ corrected. Thanks, Cyndane.
