Zelda: more footage for Breath of the Wild, “Hyrule Graphics” book getting English release

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Here’s the video:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U / NX) comes out in 2017, worldwide.

The Legend of Zelda: Art and Artifacts

On Friday, a book called The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Graphics will be released in Japan. It includes over 2000 official artworks from all the Legend of Zelda games, but also round-tables with the developers, and much more. It’s not quite like Hyrule Historia, which was more akin to an encylopedia, and more like an artbook with lots of extras.

If you’re looking forward to the book, but don’t understand a word of Japanese, here’s some great news for you… It will be released in English next year, on February 21st to be precise, courtesy of Dark Horse (who also published Hyrule Historia). It will be called The Legend of Zelda: Art and Artifcats, and not Hyrule Graphics like in Japan.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the book will include a “preview look” at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild before its release, in March.  Here’s some preview pages:
