Square Enix and Yen Press announce worldwide digital partnership photo
Square Enix and Yen Press announce worldwide digital partnership
by Brad Rice

Yen Press and Square Enix just announced a partnership to put eBook versions of 175 manga titles online, giving the English-language versions of Square Enix's manga worldwide reach. Starting April 8, you'll be able to access some of Yen Press's most popular titles through Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Google, and Kobo digital platforms.

Initially the service will start with just Soul Eater, Black Butler, and Doubt, but Yen Press will roll out more titles throughout April and the coming months. It gives you something to look forward to each week!

In addition to that, Soul Eater, Soul Eater NOT!, and Secret will all see weekly chapter releases in digital form, starting on April 14th. It's a way to keep fans reading in between the volume releases.

I'll admit that I'm a little surprised they didn't announce joining Comixology, which seems to be the go-to place for reading American comics. It's the industry standard for Marvel and DC, and it's not a bad market to tap into. Comixology might not be available in every marketplace, but it's still worth a shot, no?

Check out the full press release after the jump.

Drakengard 3 DLC gets a trailer full of crazy

Square Enix's Drakengard 3 is one of the weirdest games I've played in recent memory. It's full of bugs, jank, is graphically unimpressive, and generally feels like a very early PS2 game.  Drakengard 3 is also filled wi...

Squall dumps Rinoa, marries White Mage instead

I have to admit: as much as my husband and I both adore a certain long-running JRPG series, it didn't occur to either of us to make our 2012 wedding ceremony Final Fantasy-themed. We did think of making it Persona-themed, bu...
