While SNK has done a great job putting out a number of supplemental media — such as comics and animation — for The King of Fighters franchise, most of these have come from and are focused towards the Chinese market. That’s about to change however, as a new The King of Fighters manga is set to debut early next year in Japan.

The new manga, called The King of Fighters ~ A New Beginning is set to make its debut in the January 1 issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine. No details on what the plot of the manga will be about, however the released art seems to indicate that it somehow ties into or is based on the events of The King of Fighters XIV.

Check out the announcement from Monthly Shonen Sirius below:
