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.
