Bakutsuri Bar Hunter Games Get New Manga in November
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Coro Coro Comics magazine revealed on Tuesday that the Bakutsuri Bar Hunter franchise will launch a new manga titled Bakutsuri Hunters in the magazine's next issue on November 15. The magazine did not reveal the author or authors for the manga. The new manga has the same title as the franchise's upcoming Nintendo Switch game, but the magazine does not explicitly state that the manga is an adaptation of the game.
The game will ship for the Switch in winter 2019.
Sabakan Suzuki previously drew a Bakutsuri Bar Hunter manga (seen right) in the magazine that launched in March 2018 and ended on May 15.
The multimedia franchise is a collaboration between Bandai, Shogakukan, and Toei Animation, and includes an anime, a manga, a game, and a toy line. Toei Animation is in charge of the anime, which premiered on TV Tokyo and its affiliates in October 2018, and ended in March.
Bandai began releasing the toy line starting with the "Bakutsuri Bar Rod" in March 2018. The Bakutsuri Bar Rod is an attachment for a player's Nintendo 3DS, and players can then download a free Bakutsuri Bar Hunter game for the 3DS to play the game.
