The Witcher: Ronin Kickstarter is LIVE

Everyone’s favorite Witcher is heading to Japan.

CD Projekt Red has officially launched its Kickstarter campaign for The Witcher: Ronin. The manga will imagine Geralt as a monster slayer in an ancient and mythological Japanese setting. The main story will be 100 full-color pages of Geralt searching for the “Lady of Snow Yuki Onna.” Three short stories around 15 pages each will also be part of the book. These stories will expand the world of Ronin and include characters like Yennefer and Vesmir. Rounding out the Kickstarter edition will be a making-of section with “creator commentary, early draft sketches, and insight into the mythological background” that influenced the book.

The manga is already finished and is expected to ship in January of next year. It’ll run you a little over 40 USD plus shipping for the basic pledge, which will include the hardcover book, a digital copy, and a postcard of ronin Geralt. Act fast — those who pledge within the first 24 hours (until 9/8 at 6:00 EST) will receive a free miniature statue of Geralt battling a tengu, which is normally a $12 add-on. Other add-ons include a tote bag and a set of five enamel pins.

The Witcher: Ronin was first announced back in July. IGN was able to speak with its author, Rafal Jaki, about the book, its origins, and why they chose to go with Kickstarter. While you wait for your copy of Ronin to arrive, read about other video games that would work well as fantastical manga.
