A while ago it was confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess would have its own manga. At the time it was only pinned down for a Japanese release, but Akira Himekawa - the combined name for the two artists behind many of these franchise manga - has since outed it as being localised by Viz Media in English, though there's no release date as yet.

Viz Media has other Zelda manga localisations in the works, so may take its time before beginning marketing for the Twilight Princess entry. Nevertheless, it seems to be a done deal according to this Facebook post from 21st May, which also had a nice shot of the Japanese version that's less than a month away.

It will also be released in English and German. The English version is planned to be published by VizMedia, and the German version will be published by TOKYOPOP Deutschland.

However, the English and German publishers have not announced their releases yet and we don't know their release dates or other details, so please wait for the announcement from them for more information. We will share the information once it has been announced officially.

Viz Media announced that they will release the Zelda Manga Collection of Ocarina of Time Legendary Edition on November 1st. The Legend Of Zelda: Legendary Edition is a new series of 2-in-1 releases of the classic 10-volume fantasy adventure.

The Legend Of Zelda: Legendary Editions each contain two complete volumes of The Legend Of Zelda manga series, presented in a deluxe format featuring new covers and color artwork by creator Akira Himekawa, and will be printed in a larger 5-3/4" x 8-1/4" format.
