SCE Japan Studio's survival horror series Siren is getting a manga adaptation, according to a tweet from PlayStation Japan.

The manga, Siren: The Call of the Red Sea, will commemorate the franchise's 10th anniversary and will be drawn by horror manga artist Wataru Kamio. The Call of the Red Sea will feature a new storyline set in the Siren universe and is being overseen by series veterans, including longtime director and creator Keiichiro Toyama and scenario writer Naoko Sato. Both Toyama and Sato will have editorial conrtol over Kamio's work.

This is the second manga adaptation of the series, the first being Siren: Eternal Siren, which was released in Japan in 2005.

The Call of the Red Sea will be released periodically over the next several months, with the first issue launching in the upcoming spring issue of Shin Mimibukuro Atmos, a manga magazine that releases quarterly in Japan. The following installments will be included in the magazine's July, October and December issues.

The three Siren games were developed by Project Siren, a smaller development team within SCE Japan Studio. The first game, Siren, launched in Nov. 2003 for PlayStation 2, with sequels Forbidden Siren 2 following in Feb. 2006 for PS2 and Siren: Blood Curse in July 2008 for PlayStation 3. A film adaptation of the series, Forbidden Siren, launched in 2006 alongside Forbidden Siren 2.
