    Though he retired from Nintendo in 2021, Takaya Imamura has been behind some of the company’s most iconic characters. Working on titles like F-Zero, Star Fox, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and many more, he’s arguably a wizard with a pen (understatement of the year), and now Imamura has turned his talents into manga. (Thank you, Manga-News).

    A slight departure from the world of video games, Imamura’s debut manga, omega 6now available to purchase from publishers omake books for €7.90 (around £8).

    The book is currently only available in French and there are no signs of an English translation on the way at the moment. That said, Imamura’s art shines through nonetheless, opting for a classic blackout style that stands out against his brighter Nintendo works.

    Coming from the mind behind the iconic look of Captain Falco, Fox McCloud, and everyone’s favorite fairy Tingle, the manga has definitely piqued our interest. While it may not be a total substitute for more original video game work, branching out into another medium is a move to be respected.
