The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia is the next issue in the Legend of Zelda book series by Nintendo, following Hyrule Historia and Arts & Artifacts. Originally, it was slated for a release in the West on April 24th, 2018. However, it seems like it got pushed back a little. Several Amazon websites, including Amazon US, Amazon Germany, Amazon France and Amazon Spain now list the book as releasing on June 19th, 2018. A couple of sites like Amazon UK still have the original April release date, though it’s likely just a matter of time until they change it as well.

Similarly, the release date of the Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia Deluxe Edition, which contains Hyrule Historia, Arts & Artifacts and the Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia in special NES cartridge-themed sleeves, has also been pushed back to June 19.


Over the past few years, we’ve seen an uptick in various Zelda toys. The latest example of this is The Legend of Zelda Uno, which arrives this week.

GameStop lists The Legend of Zelda Uno for a February 15 release. Apparently, it will be exclusive to the retailer as well. There is a listing on Walmart, though it’s currently showing out of stock.

Nintendo delivered Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s second DLC pack last week. Now that the game’s development is truly finished (at least that we know of), fans can’t help but wonder what the future holds for the franchise.

As you would expect, Nintendo isn’t ready to delve into any specific plans just yet. However, Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi and series producer Eiji Aonuma did talk about their mindset going forward.

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has been touring around the world for the past five years. In 2018, the concert will be taking a bit of a break.

You may have noticed that no tour dates have been announced for next year. With 2017 almost coming to an end, we found that a bit odd. We reached out to the folks involved with Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, and were told by a representative that the there are no plans to tour in 2018 at this time.

Grant Kirkhope just wrapped up his work on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle as the game’s composer. But Mario isn’t the only Nintendo franchise Kirkhope is interested in contributing to.

Speaking with GamesMaster this month, Kirkhope spoke about really wanting “to get on to Zelda”. Part of this is due to Zelda: A Link to the Past being his favorite game of all time, and having a great deal of respect for the soundtrack.

One of the statues First 4 Figures took pre-orders for earlier this year was The King of Red Lions from Zelda: Wind Waker. It now seems that production is complete, as IGN has posted an unboxing video. Have a look at it below.
