Zelda is back… in book form!



Author: Patrick

Full disclosure: I’m probably the only writer for Nintendo Everything who doesn’t really consider myself a fan of the Zelda series. My opinion of every Zelda game tends to dramatically vary, but I think the series’ art is the one area that the games consistently excel at. And so when it was announced that Dark Horse would be publishing a combination of art and history book to celebrate the Zelda series, of course I jumped at the chance to review it. The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia sure makes a great first impression. Even the regular edition Hyrule Historia has a hardcover and with over 250 pages it’s quite a heavy book. It promises plenty of fully translated information about the series from the specifics of the Zelda timeline to the shape and density of Tingle’s chest hair, but we won’t really know until we take a look inside…

You don't consider yourself a fan of the Zelda series!? Whaaaat!?

Still, I think you just convinced me to pick this up. Any idea how expensive it is?

Pretty sure the book is only $30-40 (plus however much for the limited edition that no-one can get). It's totally worth that much!

And I do like the Zelda games, it's just that every game since Minish Cap has left me going "alright, I guess that was pretty decent." Except Phantom Hourglass, which left me having a fit on the floor while shrieking "TEMPLEOFTHEOCEANKINGTEMPLEOFTHEOCEANKINGTEMPLEOFTH
waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Dude, Skyward Sword motion controls and Ancient Cistern didn't wow you?

I was more interested in the timeline, and was a little dissapointed that the book was mostly design scetches. Still worth the money though. One thing I learned from the book that somehow I missed when I played the Skyward Sword game is the old lady is Impa.
