First announced in September 2020, Ubisoft would announce a brand new collaboration project/contest with Manga Publisher Shueisha Incorporated. The project would involve Ubisoft Properties such as Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, and Tom Clancy’s The Division. This contest announcement called for either experienced mangakas and novices who were invited to send a short story to Shueisha where it would be based on these franchises.
While the deadline was January 31st, 2021, Ubisoft went onto discuss the prize: “Three winners will be rewarded with cash prizes, a visit to one of our studios, and of course the publication of their story in Shōnen Jump+, the digital version of Weekly Shōnen Jump (available on PC, Android, and iOS).” The first One-Shot story would be available to read today on Manga Plus and Shonen Jump Plus, a story by Mangaka Hiromu Nagase called “HAPPY VAAS DAY.”
