Set for an exclusive print release, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is based on the classic Nintendo role playing, puzzle-solving, action video game series. The manga features story and artwork by creator Akira Himekawa, the team widely renowned for their previous Zelda manga adaptations.
Once upon a time, wizards tried to conquer the Sacred Realm of Hyrule. The Spirits of Light sealed the wizards’ power within the Shadow Crystal and banished them to the Twilight Realm beyond the Mirror of Twilight. Now, an evil menace is trying to find Midna, Princess of the Twilight Realm, and the fragments of the Shadow Crystal to gain the power to rule over both the Twilight Realm and the World of Light.
“Zelda fans will love this latest release for one of the franchise’s most popular games,” says Michael Montesa, Editor. “The 13th video game in the Zelda saga, Nintendo’s Twilight Princess takes a notably darker, more mature tone than previous installments. This foreboding atmosphere is captured in this exciting new adaptation, which fans and players will want to add to their personal collections.”
One of the most memorable games ever to be released in the Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Vol. 1 comes out on March 14, 2017. The series is rated T for Teens and will carry a print MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN. Volumes will be released on a yearly basis.
