According to the plot, Geralt will find himself in ancient Japan, where he will have to face the spirit of Yukki-onnu.
The story will not overlap neither with the works of Andrzej Sapkowski, nor with the trilogy of the Polish studio.
The book will be drawn by Rafal Yaki, the author of the Cyberpunk 2077 anime and Japanese artist Hataya. There will be a total of 100 pages in the manga.
The cost has not yet been disclosed.
Those who support the authors on the first day are entitled to a gift – a figurine depicting a battle between Geralt and Tengu, a winged creature from Japanese legends.
