On February 21st, Dark Horse will publish The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts in English (known as The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Graphics in Japan). It’s a book containing thousands of official artworks from all the games from the Legend of Zelda series, created by the Nintendo Dream staff (a Japanese magazine entirely dedicated to Nintendo consoles and games).
Pre-orders for the regular edition went live a while ago, but yesterday, Dark Horse and IGN revealed a Limited Edition, that will be released on the same day. The contents of the two editions are exactly the same, and the only differences are:
- the cover, which features the Master Sword
- the slipcase
- gold gilded pages
And… that’s pretty much it. There’s no extra content like in the Collector’s Edition of the Prima guides, so if you cannot afford the Limited Edition, you will not have to feel bad about it. Because yes, this Limited Edition is pretty expensive: $79.99 on Amazon.com, as opposed to $39.99 (MSRP) for the regular edition.
If you’re interested, you can pre-order both on Amazon.com (NB: affiliate links):
