Final Fantasy XV and Soul Eater will be among the line's first titles
There's no shortage of Square Enix content in the US, but a new partnership with Penguin Random House will allow the company to drop new goodies directly to the US market.
The company's new English-language imprint will feature books and manga based on some of Square Enix's most popular properties. Kicking off the new line will be the novel FINAL FANTASY XV: The Dawn of the Future, containing "a new chapter" in the FFXV universe. Also included will be localizations of the Hi-Score Girl and A Man and His Cat manga, as well as a full release of the original manga of Soul Eater.
Representatives from both Square Enix and Penguin Random House have expressed their excitement at being able to bring more Japanese titles directly to the American market.
No release dates have been solidified so far, but we can likely expect to hear some news in the near future.
