Manga creator Naoki Serizawa revealed on Twitter on March 30 that he us working on a manga adaptation of a project with a planned anime and game, after already working on some of the character designs for the anime and game.
Serizawa previously stated last year in April that he is designing characters for an as-yet unrevealed game or anime. Serizawa did not state if his announcement on March 30 is the same project.
Serizawa is currently serializing Psycho Bank in Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine, as well as Sports Doctor "MAMA" (Mama wa Sports Doctor) in Nihon Bungeisha's Weekly Manga Goraku.
Serizawa launched the Biohazard: heavenly island manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in January 2015, and he ended the series in February 2017. Serizawa also recently ended the Billion Dogs manga with author Muneyuki Kaneshiro. The fourth and final volume shipped in Japan in February 2017. DeNA's Manga Box app published the manga in both Japanese and English.
Serizawa's earlier Biohazard: Marhawa Desire manga launched with a prologue chapter in the inaugural issue of CAPCOM's CapBom! magazine in 2011, and the series ended in 2013. Viz Media published the five-volume manga in North America under the title Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire. Serizawa's Saru Lock manga inspired a live-action television series in 2009.
