Dark Horse Provides Official Zelda Wallpapers

DaveyJanuary 22nd, 2013 by Davey

With the release of the long awaited localization of Hyrule Historia looming near, Dark Horse Comics has released a small wallpaper pack with various sizes to fit your wallpaping needs.

Unfortunately there is only one wallpaper variant, and it is the cover of Hyrule Historia. But if you’re really anxious for the book to arrive at your door, you can apply this background to your computer, tablet, or phone and experience all of Hyrule Historia’s glory vicariously through the graphic.

Hit the jump to grab the wallpaper!

Wallpaper Sizes: medium: 1024 x 768  large: 1280 x 1024  magnum: 1920 x 1200
ipad: 1024 x 1024  iphone: 320 x 480  iphone_retina: 640 x 960

I honestly don’t know whether I like the Japanese Hyrule Historia or the Dark Horse Comics localization cover better. I think the green cover adorning the localization is better, but something about the exciting news, rumors, and fan translations which spread around the Japanese cover will always stick in my mind as my favorite.

Will you be setting your wallpaper to this? Tell us in the comments!

    The resolution is way too small to use it as a wallpaper on my desktop…

    • Ordona

      How could you possibly have a screen resolution much bigger than 1920×1200?!

      • Chris

        Having more than 1 screen with shared desktop x)

  • ShadowBeast

    Got a new wallpaper. :) SCORE! Totally getting the Hyrule Historia for my b-day!

  • Liquidus

    Seriously? No 16:9 ratio resolutions? Dark Horse, that’s soooo 1999… I am disappoint.

      Tell me about it. Now, if I want to get it, I have to either get the biggest one, and crop out the edges, get one of the smaller ones, and deal with some ugly extra space around the edges, or get one of the smaller ones, and (I’m pretty sure it’s possible) stretch it out to fit the screen properly, with the result being a warped, blurry version of what would otherwise be a pretty sweet wallpaper.

    Well if you got the Limited Edition your cover is going to be brown more like the Japanese version.

    As for the green cover, it’s nice to see the book get a different cover for the sake of differentiating it from the Japanese version.

    Overall I’m just happy they aren’t simply tagging on the 25th anniversary promo artwork onto it. It looks far more classy this way.

    • Cranbery

      you got that right!!!
      even though the whole 25th anniversary thing is cool, it looks much better without it.

  • MiniJen

    • baileygirl99

      • Cranbery

        ‘squee’? as in kikwis?

        • baileygirl99

          Nah, it’s just a happy/excited noise. :-P

    DAMMIT I was going to order this over a week ago and then I had to cancel my card because someone stole it. Now I have to wait 2 weeks to get new card and by then the book will probably be sold out.

    I like this cover, but the iPadt use isn’t mine, it’s my mom’s, and she isn’t a Zelda fan too much…

    (reading my own comment i realize why my best friend called me ‘zelda’ today… and the donut joke…)

  • Cranbery

    but for the most part i like them both
