Yen Press Announces the Release of the Sekiro Side Story: Hanbei the Undying Manga

Yen Press has announced that it will be releasing the Sekiro Side Story: Hanbei the Undying manga, which was inspired by the Sekiro video game, in print and digitally on June 23, 2020. Delving into history unexplored in the game, Sekiro Side Story: Hanbei the Undying provides rich insight into the history of the game’s main character.

Life beyond death. A foolish notion with which to deceive oneself. But what happens when death does not come? Hanbei the Undying has lived longer than most, yet he’s found no sense of purpose along the way-no reason to swing his blade. With a history vaster than most could hope to comprehend, it’s only natural to wonder: Who exactly was he before he met the Wolf? Find out in this must-read tale for fans of FromSoftware’s hit game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Seikro is one of the most successful console games of 2019, shipping almost four million copies. It was cited as receiving “universal acclaim” according to Metacritic and won numerous awards, including Game of the Year from The Game Awards 2019 and the Japan Game Award’s Award for Excellence.
