Manga-crazy Japan will be getting a Splatoon manga comic book later this month. Not much is known about the manga besides a few images that have been posted on Twitter (1, 2, 3). One thing is for sure: it doesn’t look like it’s an official Nintendo creation — the Nintendo logo doesn’t appear on the cover of the book, and the company rarely allows for their IP to be used for other media such as comic books.

According to Japanese sources, the Splatoon manga is a one-time thing that is included in this month’s issue of CoroCoro Comic — CoroCoro is a monthly Japanese manga magazine published by Shogakukan.
Splatoon launches later this month, exclusively on the Wii U. There are a few more pics of the Splatoon manga below:
