PSP Comics gets support of Japanese Publishers

ASCII Media Works, Bandai Visual, Enterbrain, Fujimi Shobo, Futabasha, Hakusensha, Kadokawa Group, Kodansha, Shogakukan, Shueisha and Square Enix — these names may not be too familiar to those outside of Japan; but within Japan, they represent the entirety of the massive manga (comics) industry.

Starting December, the Japanese PlayStation Store will be updated with new content from all of these publishers, with titles including Bleach, Evangelion, Detective Conan, Fullmetal Alchemist and more. A lineup like that would certainly entice many of us, but America will have to stick with downloadable Marvel comics for now.

    This is good news, all who embrace digital comics only help to push it forward. Looking forward to seeing what can be done next.

    I think it’s also a good start for where the market is strongest. Japan has the most PSP players and bringing in Manga where all ages read it is going to be a bonus to gamers and readers alike
