Remember Shao Jun, the hero from Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China? Well, her story’s getting its very own manga adaptation, Ubisoft has announced. Published by manga giant VIZ, Assassin’s Creed: Blade of Shao Jun will be available both at retail and online from the 16th February. It’ll feature an “extended” version of Shao Jun’s tale.
Here’s the official cover art for the release:
The manga’s actually been running in Japan since November 2019, but it’s nice to hear that the localisation is finally happening. Artist Minoji Kurata is a big fan of the series, stating that she’s played “almost every game” in an interview with Access the Animus last year. Kurata’s favourite assassin is apparently Edward Kenway, which we think is a pretty solid choice.
