VIZ Media has announced that they are hard at work localising the Splatoon manga series, marking the first time that it will be made available outside Japan.
The manga series was penned by Sankichi Hinodeya and had been published each month in Japan’s CoroCoro Comic. It stars Blue Team and sees them take on other Inkling teams in Turf War, introducing new weapons and stages that had appeared in the Wii U exclusive.
The series was later released in two complete manga volumes, although it is unclear whether VIZ Media will choose to release it as a single volume.
VIZ Media will release the Splatoon manga series later this year.
