To add even more hype to the release of Splatoon 2 this July, a Splatoon manga series will be releasing in North American later this year.
The news was announced by Japanese-American entertainment company Viz Media on Twitter, which has licensed the manga series for a western release. The Splatoon manga was first released in Japan in a monthly manga magazine called CoroCoro Comic in May 2015 to coincide with first Splatoon game release. It was later picked up as a series in February 2016 by the same publication.
There’s no official release date yet, but Viz Media has promised questioning fans on Twitter that it will let them know as soon as pre-orders are available.
Splatoon 2 is releasing on Nintendo Switch on July 21.
