Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the most popular titles on the Nintendo Switch right now. But if you’re interested in experiencing one of Nintendo’s popular franchises in other media forms, an official manga based on the latest entry is getting an English translation this year.
Viz Media announced that the first volume, titled Deserted Island Diary, will release in the West on September 14th. The manga will focus on what the villagers residing on a deserted island are up to. The manga was originally released in Japan in 2020 and currently has two volumes available. Animal Crossing: New Horizons also inspired a separate manga series, with the first chapter debuting in the February 2020 issue of Ciao magazine.
