Hyrule Historia Launch Event at Nintendo World

DjinnJanuary 30th, 2013 by Djinn

Ever since it was first announced over a year ago fans have been wanting to get their hands on the Hyrule Historia. Well now that it has been released in North America the Nintendo World store in New York held a launch event celebrating the release. Fortunately YouTube member KirbyGCN17 recorded the whole thing for those of us who did not get the chance to go. In this video we get a brief glimpse of the decorations, giveaways, and the costume contest held there.

This reminded me of a few of the videos that came out a while back for the 25th anniversary and Ocarina of Time release events that took place there. All these special Zelda happenings in New York and I never get the chance to see any of them. The costume contest looked pretty fun and I loves all the stuff they placed all over the building. However in this whole thing I don’t think i saw a single Hyrule Historia in anyone’s hands.

        Hey Ben, if you’re going to have a parody account of that creepy pasta, which was actually pretty cool and fun when it all happened, then at least use proper grammar and spelling. It makes you look like an idiot, or rather moreso.

        • BEN
