Kadokawa's Comic Walker website announced on Friday that it will launch a manga adaptation of FromSoftware's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice game on May 27. The manga is titled Sekiro Gaiden: Shinazu Hanbei (Sekiro Side-Story: Hanbei the Undying). Shin Yamamoto (Monster Hunter: Flash Hunter) is drawing the manga and is also credited for organization, and FromSoftware is supervising the manga.
Publisher Activision describes the game:
Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, and published by Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third-person, action-adventure game with RPG elements. The single-player game puts players in the protagonist role of a hard-hearted warrior whose mission is to rescue his master, a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, and exact revenge on his arch nemesis. Set in the re-imagined world of late 1500s Sengoku Japan; a brutal, bloody period of constant life-and-death conflict, in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf,” a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death.
In the game, players come face-to-face with larger than life foes; unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities to blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head-to-head combat in a bloody confrontation.
Take revenge. Restore your honor. Kill Ingeniously.
