Animal Crossing: New Horizons manga Deserted Island Diary preorder story details Amazon KOKONASU RUMBA

Viz Media will release volume 1 of an Animal Crossing: New Horizons manga, called Deserted Island Diary, on September 14, 2021, and it now has an official story description. It’s basically exactly what you would expect, but if you’re an Animal Crossing fan, that’s probably a good thing. You can preorder the Animal Crossing: New Horizons manga at retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart, and more, presently retailing for $9.99 in seemingly all cases. But first, here’s that story description:

In the global phenomena video game Animal Crossing, gamers are used to having one human islander live in the video game. Now, the game’s first official English graphic novel Animal Crossing New Horizons—Deserted Island Diary offers a new special twist with four islanders living with Tom Nook and fan-favorite villagers. Join the humorous Coroyuki, princess Himepoyo, scholar Benben, and sleepy Guchan as they indulge in the island paradise. From collecting bells to creating their dream home, these four islanders give first-time and frequent fans a new unforgettable experience!

Details about the author of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons manga, “Kokonasu Rumba,” are difficult to come by, but the person has apparently done art for the trading card game Duel Masters and also made a Yo-kai Watch manga. Meanwhile, if you’d like to have more English video game manga in your life, you can always check out Super Mario Manga Mania.
