The manga creator duo Akira Himekawa said on their official Facebook page on Friday that Viz Media will publish the first volume of their The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess manga in English. However, Viz Media told ANN that it could not confirm a license.
Himekawa also mentioned that Tokyopop Deutschland will publish the volume in German. The pair revealed the cover of the volume (click the link above to see the volume cover on Facebook).
Himekawa launched the Twilight Princess manga in Shogakukan's MangaONE app on February 8, where it serializes every other week. Twilight Princess marks the pair's return to drawing The Legend of Zelda manga after an eight-year hiatus. Shogakukan will publish the first volume of the manga in Japan on June 24.
Himekawa serialized The Legend of Zelda manga series from 1998 to 2008. The duo drew a prologue to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game in 2011.
Viz Media will also publish Himekawa's The Legend of Zelda: Legendary Edition, Vol. 1: Ocarina of Time Parts 1 & 2 manga in English on November 1. The Legend Of Zelda: Legendary Edition is a new series of two-in-one releases of the pair's The Legend of Zelda manga. Each of the five omnibus volumes will contain two volumes of the original series with new covers, colored artwork, and a larger printing format. Viz Media previously published all 10 volumes in the series in singular volumes.
