The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo has announced three The Legend of Zelda-themed orchestral concerts for Japan. Titled The Legend of Zelda: Concert 2018, these concerts will take place on November 22nd and December 14th in Tokyo and on November 25th in Osaka. The concerts will be centered around three instruments that have played key roles in past Zelda games: the ocarina (Ocarina of Time), harp (Skyward Sword) and accordion (Breath of the Wild). Tickets cost between 7,500 Yen for regular seats and 12,000 Yen for so-called “Master Seats”, which also include several Zelda-themed goodies.

The conductor for the concerts will be Taizo Takemoto, who served in the same role for the Majora’s Mask 3D concert in 2o15 and the Zelda 30th anniversary concert in 2016. The concerts in Tokyo will be performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, while the Osaka show will be performed by the Japan Century Symphony Orchestra.

Video games don’t often make the best film adaptations. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is looking to break that feeling, as he’s directing the upcoming Metal Gear Solid film.

At Comic-Con this week, IGN asked Vogt-Roberts how he’d approach making a movie based on The Legend of Zelda. Here’s what he mentioned:

Nintendo Life caught up with Dark Horse editor Patrick Thorpe for a discussion about the publisher’s Zelda books. Thorpe spoke about how the partnership with Nintendo started, revealed that Hyrule Historia has sold nearly one million copies, and talked about the Zelda timeline.

We have these excerpts from the interview below. You can read the full discussion here.

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia finally released outside of Japan this week. Dark Horse published a trailer for the book, which we have below.

You can purchase The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia in standard and limited edition forms here.

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia finally arrived in the west this week. Previously, the book was only available in Japan.

Fans are picking up on some interesting tidbits from the book, including the fact that the first Zelda takes place entirely on Death Mountain from A Link to the Past. Here’s a comparison:

Looks like Nintendo is looking to hire a new level designer for The Legend of Zelda. It seems they will be designing events, dungeons, fields and enemies. It’s good to know more Zelda is coming from Nintendo.


We’re just a little over a month out until The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia releases in English. This week, IGN shared a few photos from the localized version. You can check them out in the gallery below.

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia will be out on June 19. Dark Horse will be offering a Deluxe Edition featuring “a black polypropylene sleeve, lined with velvet flocking, and a scale instruction booklet with fun, theme-appropriate material inside.”


IGN has a new look at the Majora’s Mask life-size replica created by First 4 Figures. Take a closer look at the item with the unboxing video below.

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.
