Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs is getting an official manga set in Tokyo. The manga will debut in Japanese on April 12 and is simply called Watch Dogs Tokyo, as manga news feed Manga Mogura RE (below) was spotted and shared by Games Radar.
It will feature the evil Bloom Corporation from the Watch Dogs games, previously set in Chicago, San Francisco and most recently London, as it expands its reach into Japan.
A new manga series based on Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs video game series titled Watch Dogs Tokyo, drawn by Kamo Syuhei (Gangsta: Cursed) and written by Shirato Seiichi, will be released on April 12, 2022 on the website of Start Kurage Bunch

Manga Mogura RE also shared a plot synopsis, saying, “It will be about a special new infrastructure system by a company called Bloom Japan that will be used by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to transform people’s lives. However, there is actually a great darkness in this new system.
Not much is known other than being published on the manga website Kurage Bunch and being drawn by Kamo Syuhei and written by Shirato Seiichi. It is currently unknown if an English version of the manga will be released.
This isn’t Watch Dogs’ first foray into the world of comics. A four-part series based on Watch Dogs Legion was released last November.
Otherwise, the series has been quiet since last summer when the Legion of the Dead DLC was released and Ubisoft is yet to confirm if another Watch Dogs game is in development.
IGN has reached out to Ubisoft for comment on the manga’s release.
