Among Us is Getting a Manga Adaptation
Recently, Manga Mogura RE confirmed on Twitter that Among Us is getting a manga adaptation. According to the report, the manga will be published in the Bessatsu Corocoro issue on 4/2022, which is scheduled to release in February 2022. However, we have yet to receive an exact release date.
There’s no news around the manga’s author or the story either. So, we’ll have to wait a little longer to get some information on the project. Also, it would be interesting to see which map from the game will be featured in the manga.
Fortunately, the fact that Among Us manga is now official, we should expect a Japanese studio picking the project for an anime adaptation as well. However, that will purely depend on the manga’s performance after its release. Also, we don’t know how many chapters the upcoming manga will contain. So, that will also determine the possibility of Among Us receiving an anime adaptation.
