Kumo Kagyu’s dark fantasy novel series, Goblin Slayer!, had its genesis in February 2016, courtesy of SB Creative. Simultaneously, Kōsuke Kurose, the talent behind The IDOLM@STER Neue Green for Dearly Stars, commenced an ongoing manga adaptation in Big Gangan in May 2016.
Notably, Yen Press has secured licensing rights for both Kumo Kagyu’s Goblin Slayer! novels and Kōsuke Kurose’s manga adaptation, broadening the reach of this captivating universe. Furthermore, this literary tapestry has fostered an array of spinoff novels and manga series.
Fans of Goblin Slayer! can anticipate an immersive experience with the upcoming console game, Goblin Slayer! -Another Adventurer- Nightmare Feast, set to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam this winter.
