In surprising news, Nintendo has announced a manga adaptation of the new Switch release, Fire Emblem Engage.
As Siliconera highlights, this serialization will make its Shonen Jump debut next month, on February 3, with a prologue release. After this, the chapters will be released on a monthly basis, with the first one coming out on March 3.
The manga release will feature the male version of Alear, and the manga artist behind this series is Kazurou Kyou, known for series like Himedoll!! Y dead end host. Fire Emblem fans in Japan will be able to watch this new manga series on Weekly Shonen Jump+ for free, and follow-up chapters will be available to watch for free for a period of three weeks after release.
This manga will not require any knowledge of the game, but we are sure that it will be a much more enjoyable experience if you have played it. It also seems like a great combination, considering that the main character designer of the title is known for her previous work on VTuber designs.
It is not the first time that we have seen a Nintendo series adapted into a manga either. Games like Splatoon have also received the same treatment. Below is a look at some of the scenes from the prologue of the Fire Emblem Engage manga:
If we learn of a location, we’ll let you know.
