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.
