Viz Media has confirmed to ICv2 that it will release the two-volume The Legend of Zelda manga series in October.  Viz Media is publishing the two-volume The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time manga, which was published in Japan in 2000 and is based on the popular Nintendo video game.  Viz Media's Legend of Zelda manga volumes are both 200 pages long, rated suitable for "all ages," and will have a cover price of $7.99 ($9.50 in Canada).


The two-volume Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time series was created by the two-woman team of "Honda A" and "Nagano S," who have specialized in adapting Nintendo's Legend of Zelda games to manga under the "pen name" of Akira Himekawa.


Viz Media has had considerable success with another "all ages" series based on a popular Nintendo game -- the Best of Pokemon Adventures: Red made the "BookScan Top 20" list for March (see "BookScan's Top 20 Graphic Novels for March") and the property has become a fixture in top 10 on ICv2's authoritative "Top 50 Manga Properties List".
