VIZ Media announced three new manga acquisitions at Otakon: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Sweet Blue Flowers
and the QQ Sweeper
sequel Queen’s Quality.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the newest series from The Legend of Zelda manga creator Akira Himekawa. Once wizards tried to conquer Hyrule, but the spirits of Light sealed the wizards’ power within the Shadow Crystal and banished them to the Twilight Realm. Now an evil menace is trying to find the fragments of the Shadow Crystal and the realm’s princess Midna. The first volume will launch in March 2017.
VIZ will be releasing the first volume of The Legend of Zelda: Legendary Edition in November (see “New 'Zelda, ' 'Tokyo Ghoul,' 'Naruto' Releases”).
