Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a videogame about vikings. Vinland Saga is a manga and anime series about vikings. So, naturally, we need a crossover between the two, and we’re getting one – courtesy of Vinland Saga creator Makoto Yukimura. Yes, friends, that means we are getting a true Assassin’s Creed Valhalla manga.
The special one-shot is already live on Ubisoft’s Japanese website, and Ubisoft says in a press release (translated by cath on Twitter) that the collaboration will be released in English, as well. (Of course, if you’re a manga fan, you can probably guess that the special has already been unofficially translated by an enterprising fan group.)
The one-shot is a true crossover between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Vinland Saga, and it features Askeladd and young Thorfinn crossing paths with Eivor. There’s not much to it – it’s pretty much a six-page chase scene – but seeing Eivor rendered in Yukimura’s striking style is very neat.
Ubisoft has even done a nifty motion comic teaser to promote the special.
