First Look at Hyrule Historia Collector’s Edition

JordanJanuary 27th, 2013 by Jordan

As many of you know, the official English translation of the Hyrule Historia will be released by Dark Horse Comics in just a few short days. With the book’s release so close, Dark Horse hosted a special event at the Nintendo World Store in New York at which early copies of the book could be obtained.

Gaming website Kotaku was among the people to receive their collector’s edition early, and have elected to share it with the internet! Jump inside to see their video of the book!

I loved this little preview of Hyrule Historia and it has me really excited for the book’s release to the public. I especially loved the way they didn’t bother with having someone talk through the video and simply opted for shots of the book accompanied by the wonderful 25th Anniversary Main Theme medley.

If you’d like to see more, head over to Kotaku to check out their thoughts on the book as well as scans of a few pages. Also, don’t forget to tell us your thoughts about the book and video in the comments!

    I can’t wait to get this. So happy I spotted the collectors edition on Amazon right when they put it up. They say it’s going to arrive on Feb. 14th. But looks like it’ll arrive sooner!!

  • Kyle Clark

  • Baljeet

    what makes the collectors edition special from the normal edition?

    • Ake Sha

      Only the cover from what I heard.

    • Daver

      Nothing. Just a better cover.

      • Dodongo

        I pre-ordered it, is the green one the collector’s edition?

        • Linkfan99

          No, green is regular. The collector’s has a brown cover and gold pages around the edges.

      • Linkfan99

        Well, it also has gold pages (around the edges)

    • Linkfan99

      The cover, and gold-gilded pages (around the edges)

  • Awsoman12

    What’s the difference between collectors and regular editions?

    • Scott Reika Ripberger

      Obviously, the cover. However, I seem to recall a promise for some extra content pertaining to the development of Skyward Sword and the character designs therein. That’s all I can remember, but I’m sure Miyamoto wouldn’t allow us to be cheated. :)

  • The Hylian Monolith

    I am completely BLASPHEMOUS for saying this(except that I’m Atheist O.o), but Miyamoto is a bit like Hyrule’s god, and now its Jesus. he created the land and the people in it, and now he lives on as an unknown immortal who’s really known by all… and he loves us as we love him.


  • Allen Ryals

    Got mine ordered! Can’t wait!

  • Heroine of Time

    I’m really disappointed I didn’t get the collector’s edition. :( I was busy the day they were announced, and they were gone the next.

    • npatoray24

      same happened to me :/

    • Linkfan99

      Well, at least you’re not missing out on any content. Personally, I like the green cover better. (I’m getting it too)

  • Travis Zovko

  • TheMaverickk

    Still kind of pissed off at Dark Horse…. after 5 pre-orders on the limited edition got cancelled I think I have every right.

    Should’ve had a collectors edition considered I pre-ordered back in August. So yeah, not happy about the fast trick they pulled putting the pre-orders they did on this around thanksgiving.

  • glink

    I just got mine from Amazon as a surprise from my wife. I didn’t even know she knew it existed. I do have the coolest wife ever.

  • link97

    Really freaking pissed off. Just got my copy and whatever idiot delivered the package dropped it on the way here, so the corner is all smashed in and the pages are all bent. Thanks a lot, FedEx.

    I was just reading my copy and it just said that Sheik is a man!
