North American publishing company Udon Entertainment has announced some pretty exciting news! Udon has licensed Persona 4, a popular murder mystery role-playing game, to be released as a manga adaptation in English, starting this September. Originally only available in Japan, Shuji Sogabe's Persona 4 manga will be published bi-monthly for fans who have loved the three-game spinoffs, two successful anime series, compilation film, and remake of Persona 4.
In the announcement, Udon Entertainment describes Persona 4's plot as the following:
"When the small rural town of Inaba suddenly becomes the scene of a series of grisly murders, an eclectic group of high school students forms an investigation team to uncover the truth behind them and prevent more deaths. But when they discover that the murders might be connected to an urban legend about a paranormal television phenomenon called the 'Midnight Channel,' a simple investigation turns into a dangerous, action-packed journey of self-discovery across two different worlds. Along the way, dark truths will shake our heroes to their very core – and help them discover an inner strength they never knew they had!"
