Chaos;Child Game Gets Manga Adaptation
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The June issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Magazine is revealing on Thursday that the magazine will publish a manga version of MAGES and 5pb. Games' Chaos;Child game. Illustrator relucy will draw the manga.
The magazine noted that a start date has not been set yet, but the manga will start after MAGES and 5pb. have released the PlayStation versions of the game. The two companies will ship the port for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in Japan on June 25 with a Z (18+) age rating.
The game is 5pb. and MAGES' fourth science-adventure title, after Chaos;HEAd, Steins;Gate, and Robotics;Notes.
Chaos;Child first debuted on the Xbox One in December 2014. In the psycho-suspense story, after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake hits Tokyo's Shibuya ward on November 6, 2009, a black fire spreads and causes mass panic on the day of the earthquake. The sudden disaster that becomes known as the "Shibuya Earthquake" kills 3,851 people and injures 30,927 more.
The game is set in a reconstructed Shibuya district in October 2015. A string of mysterious deaths occurs in Shibuya amidst the reconstruction. People begin to take notice as the strange events start on the same day that chaos broke out in Shibuya with a certain incident six years earlier. The events are called the "Return of the New Generation Madness."
The manga version will follow Takuru Miyashiro and his friends as they try to uncover the mystery of what happened six years ago.
Former MAGES head Chiyomaru Shikura revealed last month that an anime adaptation of Chaos;Child had been green-lit.
