IDW's games division was riding high earlier this week, in anticipation of the announcement of their Wayward board game. Little did they know, their thunder would be stolen when Manga Entertainment UK Ltd. announced their option to bring Wayward to television. IDW's Vice President of New Product Development Jerry Bennington gave an EXXXCLUSIVE statement to The Outhouse saying, "TV? Why didn't we think of that?"

Published by Image Comics, Wayward is an action-drama set in modern Tokyo where Yokai, Japanese creatures and spirits of legend, battle against teenagers imbued with newfound supernatural power. Writer Jim Zub and illustrator Steven Cummings will work the project with Jon Gilmour, co-designer of Dead of Winter and Outpost: Siberia.

IDW Games' roster of tabletop adaptations includes, The X-Files, Back to the Future, and the upcoming Planet of the Apes, and Atari series of games.

The Outhouse interviewed Zub before the launch of Wayward's third arc, which you can read here. Wayward starts its fifth arc with #21 in June.

No release date has been given for the game's release, but it'll probably be once they finish the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles board game Kickstarter fulfillment.
