I’m not one to report rumours often, but this one seems credible enough.
According to multiple fans who were present at the 25th Anniversary Concert, Nintendo announced a Fire Emblem Fates manga, to be serialised in Young Magazine starting this Fall (in Japan). (Source: Hachime)
If the reports are true, Yusuke Kozaki (the artist of Awakening and Fates) will be providing the illustrations, while Shin Kibayashi (the story director for Fates) is penning the story.
Update: Famitsu has added a brief report about this news. Besides what we already knew, an image of a sword-wielder overlooking a sunset was teased at the concert.
Fire Emblem is definitely no newcomer when it comes to manga, with every game up to Binding Blade receiving a manga adaptation of some form. So this news doesn’t come as a massive surprise.
(Now the key question: Will there be two… er, I mean three versions of this manga?)
