Udon Entertainment has announced that the company has licensed Shuji Sogabe’s manga adaptation of the Atlus role-playing game Persona 4. The publisher will ship the first bimonthly volume in September 2015.
The story of the manga is described as:
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.
Sogabe launched Persona 4 in ASCII Media Works’ Dengeki Black Maoh magazine in 2008, the same year that the game debuted.
