Sankichi Hinodeya draws 1-shot that reveals future serialization

The March issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comics magazine published a pamphlet on Wednesday that features a one-shot manga adaptation of Nintendo's upcoming Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch game. Sankichi Hinodeya drew the manga. At the end of the one-shot, it notes that serialization will begin "soon." The entire pamphlet with the one-shot manga is available online.

The game is slated for release this summer.

Nintendo released the first Splatoon game for the Wii U in May 2015. The game centers on "Inklings," who are beings who can transform between human and squid form. The game pits players in a fight for territory as two teams fight to cover their battlefield with their respective paint colors.

The previous game received two manga adaptations. Kino Takahashi launched the Honobono Ika 4-Koma manga, while different manga creators contributed stories to Play Manga. Hinodeya also published a one-shot manga based on Splatoon in Coro Coro Comics in May 2015.

Splatoon previously collaborated with manga creator Masahiro Anbe (Squid Girl) to promote the game.
