Yen Press Localizes Kingdom Hearts: The Novel, Releasing March 2015
Last March, Yen Press announced that they would resume localizing Shiro Amano’s manga adaptation of the Kingdom Hearts series. The community was overjoyed by the news, as the series had been left unfinished by the hands of Tokyopop, and had been yearning for years for a new publisher to take over. However, everyone desperately also wanted Tomoco Kanemaki’s novelization of the series, fleshing out each character with new backstories that were never touched upon anywhere else. At the time, Yen Press had stated that they would be focusing only on the manga, but if fans responded favorably to the manga, they would consider releasing the novels as well.
All that waiting and support has finally paid off, as today, it was discovered on Yen Press’s official website that KINGDOM HEARTS - THE NOVEL would be releasing in March 2015!
