Legend of Zelda Manga Coming to US

This article is from the first edition of The Video Game Librarian website I published between 2008 and 2010. It was originally written on April 4, 2008.

Simon & Schuster has revealed, through their online store, that they plan to release two volumes of the Legend of Zelda manga in 2008.

The Legend of Zelda: Volume 1 will be released on October 7 while The Legend of Zelda: Volume 2 will sneak in before the end of the year on December 2. Both titles will be written by Akira Himekawa.

Himekawa has been writing the Legend of Zelda manga in Japan since 1998, when he authored an adaptation of The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Since then he has also adapted Majora’s Mask, Oracle of Seasons/Ages, Four Swords Adventures, A Link to the Past (though the manga was titled Triforce of the Gods) and The Minish Cap.

It is currently unknown which series Simon & Schuster will start with this Fall.
