MILWAUKIE, Ore., (July 29, 2021)From Japanese publisher Shogakukan, creator Wataru Nadatani, and translator Zack Davisson, Dark Horse is proud to announce the upcoming manga Cat + Gamer, available for the first time in English! The series begins March 2022.

Meet Riko, a twenty-nine-year-old office worker with an obsession with video games. Her coworkers can’t quite figure her out—she never talks about her personal life, she never works overtime, and she never joins them for happy hour. Is she antisocial? Nope, she’s rushing home to play video games alone. That is until a stray cat is found in the office parking lot and ends up coming home with her! Having no experience with pets, Riko uses lessons drawn from video games to guide her in cat care, while her cute companion tries to understand her behavior through a cat’s worldview. Equal parts funny and heartwarming, Cat + Gamer is the perfect manga for cat lovers, gamers, and anyone looking for a lighthearted new read!

Cat + Gamer arrives in comic shops March 2, 2022, and bookshops March 15, 2022. Cat + Gamer is available to pre-order now from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your local comic shop for $11.99.
