Next week, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess becomes a manga. Unfortunately, though, that manga is only available to Japanese readers using publisher Shogakukan's MangaOne app.

The manga is an ongoing series by artist and writer Akira Himekawa, which is a pseudonym for two female artists and writers (who choose not to reveal their real names). Together, the two have already adapted other Zelda games for manga, including Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and A Link to the Past. They're also responsible for other manga, such as Astro Boy, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Gliding Reki.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is an action-adventure game from Nintendo that originally released in 2006 for the GameCube and Wii. The story follows the hero Link as he tries to save Hyrule from an evil parallel dimension. Many Zelda fans and critics often consider Twilight Princess as one of the best Zelda games ever made. The title also received several Game of the Year awards.

Twilight Princess gets an HD release this year for the Wii U as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. The release of the manga's first issue on Feb. 8 coincides with the release of that new version of the game, which arrives on March 4 in both the U.S. and Japan.

Twilight Princess HD will offer some new features to gameplay, including an Amiibo that will unlock new abilities and areas. One of those new areas is the "Cave of Shadow," which brings a new set of challenges to the game.

There's no word yet if the Twilight Princess manga adaptation will ever make it to the states, but fans wanting to get their hands on it will probably find a way to do so.

Meanwhile, Nintendo continues plans for a new open-world Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U, but so far, that title has only seen delays, and the company has stated that it plans on using fan feedback from the previous Zelda title during its creation.

"We actually had some feedback from Skyward Sword, where people were saying, 'This is not exactly the Zelda game I was looking for, I was looking for a bigger open world,'" said Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma to IGN. "Unfortunately, I can't go into details but I'm hoping to put a surprise, or kind of a twist, on my view of an open world game. I hope that you'll look forward to it."
