Splatoon finally getting a manga release only means great things for the brand, since it can now reach out to those who may not want to play the game or can't afford a Switch.
Yeah it's certainly a profitable ordeal for both Nintendo and VIZ since a lot of people would love to have this in their manga collection, simply just for the prestige.
