For a few months before its release, Nintendo was releasing a very special mini Nook Inc. manga series for Animal Crossing: New Horizons to Promote the Game! Well its turns out that the June issue of Shogakukan’s Coro Coro Comics magazine announced on Friday that Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the newest entry in the Animal Crossing game franchise, is inspiring a manga series to be released in the next issue of the magazine in June.
A one-shot manga for the game was also published in the current issue. Kokonasu Runpa drew a single shot and will also draw a serialization. The April issue of the magazine also released Runpa’s one-shot manga for the March game. The game also inspired Minori Katō ‘s separate manga series Atsumare Dōbutsu no Mori: Nonbiri Shima Dayori (Animal Crossing: New Horizons-Carefree Island News), published in Ciao magazine Shogakukan last December.
