Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to Get Manga Adaptation

assassin's creed mangaA manga project entitled Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released in Jump X magazine in its September issue coming out on 10th August.  Illustrations are to be by Kenji Ooiwa (Goth, NHK ni Youkoso!) while the story is by Takahashi Yano.

The manga will be illustrated by famous gore and goth artist Keiji Ooiwa, who also worked on Welcome to the N.H.K.! and 99 Happy Soul. The writer is Takashi Yano. He won the Subaru newcomer prize for literature in 2008. His other works include “Sengoku Basara 3: Date Masamune Gaiden” as well as “Tekken: The Dark History of Mishima” (the book).

Assassin’s Creed started in November 2007 with the first instalment of the saga. It told the story of an Arabian member of the Creed named Altair who later became the leader and a beginning for what was to come in the future worlds. Then we followed the story of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, which sprang in a trilogy. The fifth installment was called Assassin’s Creed III and it showed us the revolt of native Americans during the times of war when the future US citizens would fight with the natives for territories. Assassin’s Creed IV is a new beginning. Unlike any other, it will follow a true outlaw – an infamous pirate.

The promotion for this sixth instalment has been going on for more than a year and with its launch date coming nearer and nearer, news are popping out like flowers in the spring.

I don’t really like this drawing to be honest.


The Sengoku Basara manga was hideous…


I wouldn’t put a large part of it in my portfolio if I was a pro… We’ll see.
