Square Enix Books will be releasing a manga adaptation of the mobile game SINoALICE, which was originally produced by Nier creator Yoko Taro.
Square Enix Books has announced that it will be releasing the manga adaptation of Deny by director Yoko Taro SINoALICE mobile game.
Square Enix Books is the print publishing division of Square Enix, the video game company that developed and published most of Yoko Taro’s games, including the cult classic Drakengard, critically acclaimed Nier Automata and the recently released remake Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139 …. The company confirmed on Twitter that it will locate and publish the SINoALICE manga releases in North America on February 8, 2022. In addition to crediting Yoko Taro, the manga also features the work of writer Takuto Aoki, as well as artists Himiko and Jino.
SINoALICE was a mobile RPG released in Japan in 2017 by Square Enix. An international release was originally planned by South Korean game publisher Nexon, but was delayed due to localization issues. Developer Pokelabo eventually self-released the game worldwide on iOS and Android devices in 2020. While most of Taro’s games take place in the same sprawling, interconnected continuity, SINoALICE is a stand-alone work without any link with the Deny or Drakengard universe. Original characters Deny, like Kaine and Emil, however, made in-game appearances at a limited-time collaboration event held earlier this year.
Square describes the story of SINoALICE like:
Everything about Alice – her family, her friends, her life, even her crush – is ordinary, no wonderland to see here. But lately her dreams have been anything but ordinary. While sleeping, she finds herself questioned by two creepy puppets, their glass eyes scanning the darkest corners of her heart.
” What would you like ? “” What do you want to visit in the world? “
Despite her efforts to ignore dreams, Alice is drawn into their violent and twisted universe. As greed and lust begin to warp the ordinary reality she knows, Alice is immersed in a grim game of slaughter designed for fairytale heroines who will stop at nothing to bring their creators back to life!
Yoko Taro’s next match, Deny Reincarnation, will be released on mobile devices outside of Japan on July 28. The game features characters created by Deny series designer and Final Fantasy XIV artist Akihiko Yoshida. As the game takes place in the same world as Deny and its sequel, Taro says it’s a standalone story meant to welcome newcomers to the series.
