The event also announced on Friday that an anime adaptation and a new manga adaptation of the games have been green-lit. The Sengoku Musou SP Sanada no Shō (Samurai Warriors Special: Sanada's Chapter) anime will premiere this March, and the manga will run in the March issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine (ships on February 6), the spinoff publication Monthly Shonen Magazine+ (February 20), and the May issue of Monthly Shonen Magazine (April 5).
