This year's sixth issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine is announcing on Thursday that Naoki Serizawa will launch the Biohazard: heavenly island manga in the next issue on January 15. The manga adapts Capcom's Biohazard (Resident Evil) survival horror video game series. The first chapter will have 47 pages, including a color opening page.
The story centers around the film crew for Idol Survival, the internationally popular television program where swimsuited idols compete in games. The crew arrives on the same isolated South American island that TerraSave member Claire Redfield is visiting on an investigation.
Serizawa created a manga based on the Resident Evil franchise before. Biohazard: Marhawa Desire launched with a prologue chapter in the inaugural issue of CAPCOM's CapBom! magazine in 2011. This earlier manga ended last year. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America.
