As part of this collaboration, Yukimura has drawn a unique short story for the game, which Ubisoft will publish on the official AC: Valhalla website. This is also featured in the October 24th issue of Monthly Afternoon, the magazine where the Vinland saga is serialized.

Yukimura wrote this short film as part of the ongoing Vinland Saga manga. The translated versions, including those in English, will be available shortly.

In addition, fans already love his attitude towards Eivor.

In addition, Yukimura will speak in detail about this collaboration at the online event Ubiday 2020. Ubisoft’s Japanese front is organizing this annual event / party and Yukimura will speak about the collaboration during the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla x Game Sanpo section.

AC: Valhalla isn’t the only upcoming title of 2020 with a Japanese connection. An anime from the same world as Cyberpunk 2077 known as “Cyberpunk Edgerunners“Is also in production. Perhaps developers thought that including two fandoms with one title was a great way to promote the title. So far it seems like a good move that leads to great and interesting content.
