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 spotted by manga news feed Manga Mogura RE (below) and shared by Games Radar.
It will feature the evil Bloom Corporation from the Watch Dogs games — which have so far been set in Chicago, San Francisco, and most recently London — as it extends its reach to Japan.
A new manga series based on the “Watch Dogs” video game series by Ubisoft titled “Watch Dogs Tokyo” drawn by Kamo Syuhei (Gangsta: Cursed) & written by Shirato Seiichi will start on Kurage Bunch website on April 12, 2022

Manga Mogura RE also shared a plot synopsis, saying: “It will be about a special new infrastructure system from a company called Bloom Japan used by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to change people’s lives. However this new system does in fact also harbour a great darkness.
Not much else is know other than it will be released on manga website Kurage Bunch and is drawn by Kamo Syuhei and written by Shirato Seiichi. It’s currently unknown if an English version of the manga will be released.
This isn’t Watch Dogs’ first foray into the comics world. A four-part series based on Watch Dogs Legion was released last November..
The series has otherwise 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.
