Sci-Fi Adventure Game Quantic Dream 2018, Detroit: Become Human receives a spin-off manga.
Detroit: Become Human Tokyo Stories written (under the direction of Quantic Dream) Saruwatari Kazami and drawn by Moto Sumida, according to Dengeki Online.
Unlike the “anti-android forces in the United States” we see in the game, Japanese androids are seen as a positive direction for the country’s future – a particularly popular android idol and manga protagonist Reina, according to Famitsu. However, just like in the source material, the riots begin to gurgle as the citizens become increasingly agitated that androids are replacing them in the workplace. This in turn leads to the android revolution in Japan.
“Detroit: Become Human is one of my favorite games I’ve ever played.” – Sumida said on twitter. “Glad to participate [in] this is. This comic [will] be a story about how androids live in Japan while the story continues in Detroit. I hope you enjoy it.”

No wonder that Detroit: Become Human will get its own manga considering how well the game has performed in Japan. According to Gematsu, Detroit: Become Human sold 7043 units on PlayStation 4, more than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as Super Mario Oddissi sales. Detroit: Become Human even sells better ShowerPlayStation 3 lifetime sales within the first few days of its release in Japan.
Despite the critical success of the game both in Japan and in US, Detroit: Become Humanlasting legacy is largely due to criticism of his awkward parallels with slavery and racism in America. While the game director David Cage told Kotaku after Detroitthe 2017 E3 demo that he was making an android game without an overtly political message based on real world politics, it ended up being quite the opposite.. That obviously hasn’t stopped players from finding pathetic references to the US Civil Rights Movement and thinly veiled allegories of racism in the game. unintentionally hilarious as well as awkward play.
And for those wondering why the obvious title “Tokyo: Become Human” was not chosen, that title was already used four years ago for nine-minute Japanese promotional video for the game live. Shame on that.
Android idol background leading to the robot revolution in Detroit: Become Human the universe sounds beautiful for the money. This concept has worked before with similar stories like Vivi: Song of the Fluorite Eyeand it’s hard not to find the artist’s charming enthusiasm. My only concern is that Quantic Dream is not licensing a manga series that focuses on the misadventures of Hank, a millennial detective, and his buddy Connor. Hell, he might even dare to become Boys love manga… but I’m just thinking out loud.
Detroit: Become Human Tokyo Stories expected July 22 in Japan and will be available for purchase at comic bridge.
