The Detroit: Become Human manga will be drawn by artist Moto Sumida based on the story of Saruwatari Kazami and explore a completely new direction.
Detroit: Become Human will get a manga adaptation. Like the original game, the story that the manga wants to convey will be about android robots, but this will be a completely new story set in the city of Tokyo, Japan.
Titled Detroit: Become Human Tokyo Stories, this manga will only have a single main character instead of 3 main characters like in the game. It’s an android girl named Reina, a pop idol. In Japan, androids are not limited to errands or forced slavery like in the US, but the Japanese are also becoming increasingly disgruntled as androids are taking more and more jobs, making people it’s hard to find a job. This led to an “android revolution,” in the words of Famitsu.
“DETROIT BECOME HUMAN”‘s first official comic “DETROIT BECOME HUMAN TOKYO STORIES” will be distributed on “COMIC BRIDGE” from July 22nd.

The new manga will be drawn by artist Moto Sumida based on the story by Saruwatari Kazami, and studio Quantic Dream is overseeing the series’ content. Artist Sumida writes that Detroit: Become Human is one of her favorite games, and is excited to be a part of making this manga.
Currently, Detroit: Become Human is developer Quantic Dream’s most successful game, but the studio is temporarily leaving the story of androids to focus on developing a new Star Wars game. It is unclear when this game will be released, because currently this studio is entangled in a lot of litigation scandals, criticized by former employees as a toxic working environment while a leader himself Their game also played a sexist game that made the movement to boycott their Star Wars game spread quickly.
