Splatoon is Getting a Manga; Coming to April’s Japanese Bessatsu CoroCoro Issue

I still find it astounding with how Splatoon has taken off in Japan, be it concerts, clothing lines, or the remarkable sales figures. With that said, I shouldn’t be surprised that a new manga based off of Splatoon is in the works. According to Splatoon’s Japanese Twitter account, the manga will be featured in Japanese magazine Bessatsu CoroCoro starting in April’s issue:

There is no word whether the manga will be getting an English translation or Western release, however Splatoon is notorious (at least, among Nintendo games) for having a terrific PR push. Given Nintendo is continually doubling down on Splatoon’s IP, I wouldn’t be surprised if we are seeing the characters for some time to come.
