The Legend of Zelda artbook
This year, the Legend of Zelda series celebrates its 30th Anniversary. While there will not be a new mainline game, there will be several orchestral concerts in Japan… and even an artbook (by the Nintendo Dream staff). That artbook is titled The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Graphics, and features 416 pages of artworks of the various Zelda games.
Unfortunately, the exact contents of the book are still unclear, and we don’t have a cover either. All we know is that the book will be released on August 26th in Japan, and will cost 4 298 Yen. It can be pre-ordered right now on Amazon.co.jp and CD Japan!
Here’s the cover:
