'Legend of Zelda' manga creators debut art, tease overseas release

Akira Himekawa, the two-woman team behind the Legend of Zelda manga, have debuted new art from chapters 5 and 6 of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

The new series has been running on the digital manga app Manga One, and is only available in Japan at the moment. Writing in English, the creators were coy about any possible overseas licenses for the collected editions:

The book will be released on June 24th in Japan, first. Then other countries publishing companies will have contracts with a Japanese publishing company to publish it by other languages. Probably we think that the Twilight Princess will publish by countries and the languages that published the Zelda series.

If that's true, then Viz Media, which published Akira Himekawa's previous series, would get the license. (The Japanese publisher Shogakukan, which owns the Manga One app, is part-owner of Viz.) Viz recently announced it will re-release the earlier series in a two-in-one omnibus format starting in November.
