Plus, Twilight Princess gets a manga adaptation

Super Mario Adventures, the graphic novel series that originally ran in Nintendo Power magazine, will be re-released for the first time in more than 20 years.

Viz Media, the publisher behind many successful manga series, announced today that it had acquired the rights to re-print the graphic novel as one, complete-edition. The comic follows Mario and Luigi as they try to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. The comic has been out-of-print for more than two decades and while Viz Media didn't specify why it was interested in bringing it back, it's not the only video game-inspired graphic novel that the publisher will carry.

Viz Media also announced today that the next installment in its Legend of Zelda manga series, Twilight Princess, will debut in 2017. The series, based on the game of the same name, will return to the Sacred Realm of Hyrule and follow the main protagonist Link as he tries to prevent the kingdom from being overtaken by a parallel dimension known as the Twilight Realm. The series will take place hundreds of years after the events of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

While Twilight Princess won't debut until next year, those looking to get their hands on the Super Mario Adventures collected edition can do so this October.
