Yoshinori Matsuoka draws manga based on Hiro Mashima's character designs

The first 2022 issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed on Wednesday that Square Enix's Gate of Nightmares smartphone RPG is inspiring a manga adaptation. Yoshinori Matsuoka is drawing the manga, which will launch on the Magazine Pocket app on December 8. Hiro Mashima and Square Enix are credited with the original work.

The combined second and third issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine will also publish the first chapter of the manga on December 8 to commemorate the launch.

Square Enix launched the game on October 26. The game features character designs and world-building by Fairy Tail and Edens Zero manga creator Hiro Mashima.

The game is a traditional sword-and-sorcery fantasy set in the real world and Lemurias, a parallel world where people's dreams blend together and become real. On Lemurias, monstrous creatures known as Nightmares are born from people's fear and torment. The story begins with the meeting of the girl Emma and the boy Azel. Emma is a Nightwalker, trained to fight by using Nightmares. Azel is a boy who seems to attract Nightmares to himself.

Jin Fujisawa, the scenario writer for many games in Square Enix's long-running Dragon Quest RPG series, is writing the scenario for the game. Yasuharu Takanashi, who composed the music for the television anime of Mashima's Fairy Tail manga, is composing the game's music.
