In a move that we certainly didn't see coming, Watch Dogs is getting its own manga spinoff. Titled Watch Dogs Tokyo, the manga will debut on the 12th April, but only in Japan for now. It's being illustrated by Syuhei Kamo, whose previous work includes Gangsta: Cursed. Seiichi Shirato is handling the writing side of things.

Ubisoft has a long history of branching its properties out into different types of media. For example, Assassin's Creed has been adapted to film, books, and — you guessed it — manga. Again, we weren't expecting to write about a Watch Dogs manga today, but it doesn't come as a huge surprise when you consider the ways in which Ubisoft likes to operate.

It'll be interesting to see how this fresh foray works out. A bustling city like Tokyo could make for a fantastic Watch Dogs setting, but for the time being, you'll have to make do with this 2D representation.
