posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 30th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is revealing on Wednesday that Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins manga is inspiring a video game for the PlayStation 4 titled Nanatsu no Taizai: Britannia no Tabibito (The Seven Deadly Sins: The Britannian Traveler). Bandai Namco Entertainment is developing the "deadly sins action" game. The issue is also revealing the game's package design and two screenshots.
The manga previously inspired the Nanatsu no Taizai: Unjust Sin Nintendo 3DS game in February 2015, and the Nanatsu no Taizai: Pocket no Naka no Kishidan smartphone game in January 2015. The smartphone game ended service in March.
Suzuki launched the original manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2012, and Kodansha published the manga's 26th volume in Japan on June 16. Crunchyroll is posting new chapters of the manga online as they appear in Japan. Kodansha Comics will release the manga's 21st volume in print on July 11.
The manga inspired a 24-episode television anime series that aired in 2014 and 2015. Netflix later streamed the series with both English and Japanese audio, and Funimation released the series in two parts on home video.
The anime inspired the four-episode television anime special The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War-, which premiered in August 2016. Netflix began streaming the series in February.
The franchise also includes several spinoff manga, novels, and OVAs. Weekly Shōnen Magazine had revealed a new television anime series for the franchise in September.
