Hyrule Historia Retakes #1 Slot on Amazon

GuestFebruary 5th, 2013 by Guest

A lot of Zelda fans were long anticipating the exciting release of the English version of the Hyrule Historia. This book contains 237 pages of nothing but Zelda! The fascinating book of the ongoing series contains the full history of Hyrule including the long awaited Zelda timeline! Along with the creative footprints of each Zelda game, this includes various character concepts and designer comments. But it doesn’t stop there! At the back of this amazing book the Skyward Sword prequel manga has been translated into English. Want to find out the exciting news? Jump to find out!

Since news of the release the English version of Hyrule Historia has become known all around the world and has made its way to number one on Amazon and has stayed in the top of charts for 92 days! I don’t think Nintendo was expecting such success with this book! Hyrule Historia has also been selling out quickly in stores around the world which leave people busting to get their hands on this book.

What do you think of the book? If you don’t have it already are you going to get it?

    They’ve decided to translate it in french and that’s great.

  • CourageBringsSuccess

    It’s a fascinating book. If you have the means and haven’t purchased one yet, I’d highly recommend doing so! Everyone should have the opportunity to look into the roots of each game in the series, and experience them from a creative/unbiased perspective. It’s really incredible.

    I wish I got the hardcover…. BUT STILL… AWESOME!!

    • Sammy

      Aren’t they all hardcover?

      • queenkoopa

        OOO Yay!!!!!! … I guess I meant the special edition :'(

        • Mister

          The special edition is, oddly enough, nothing special. I wouldn’t want to pay extra for a different coloured cover. Personally, I think the green cover is beautiful.

            Gee! Thanks Mister :)

  • Dandrago

    The Wait for my Collectors edition is driving me nuts!!! Why did Darkhorse delay it until 2/12!

  • Krench

    It’s a really good book with a lot of fun and interesting concepts and seeing the production of skyward sword was great. However, the fact that so little pages are dedicated to majora’s mask and the older concepts is a little disappointing, but for $20 you can’t beat it.

  • Awesome

    Just put my order in. February 20,2012 it shall be mine.

    I think it’s an amazing book! I love looking through it and seeing some of the things or people that weren’t in the games! (:

  • linkasourous

    I got it a few days ago, and it is an AWESOME Book! I absolutely love seeing all the design sketches for each character, and reading the *super* long official Timeline!!!! :D :D :D
    The manga at the end is awesome as well! The entire book is very inspirational for me!

  • Mister

    I just opened it up today. I haven’t had a good proper look at it, but skimming the pages, and I can already tell it’s full of awesome. Can’t wait to get to reading it. Too bad I’m swamped with homework. Stupid college. :(

  • Flaming Lemons

    I’m supposed to get mine today! XD
    I’ve been waiting desperately for these past few days since I placed my order with Barns & Noble.

  • MiniJen

    Yay! I love mine! Best thing ever!!! As soon as i got it, i read it cover to cover, even all the little developer’s notes! Its totally worth the $20 i spent on it and the long wait i had to go through to finally get it!!

  • Fluffske

    I got mine today :D

  • Yahiko

    I got it last week it was amazing :D

  • Liquidus

    Have my copy for a week now, and it is the most beautiful piece I have in my collection (and I’ve got autographed Metal Gear artbooks, which I hold dear to my heart). But if a publisher decides to put out a German translated version (with the correct localized character names, they’re different from the US versions), I will just buy it as well.

  • im scared

    my barnes and noble had a copy for 50 percent of for some reason (and i didnt eeven no they sold it there BENNNNNNN

    • .

      i do that with panties

      • baileygirl99

        O.O

        • Midna’s Sister

          I agree, Bailey… That’s scary…

  • Someone

    I seem to be the only one here who hasn´t purchased one yet, it´s just that I´m a little scared that it will disappoint me, so I guess that I’m going to wait for a while and see how it goes.
    Also, Amazon is said to come to Holland, so maybe I should wait for that to happen (however, it is offered on a popular dutch webshop, I can get it if I want)
    Anyway, I’m just gonna stick to reading all other peoples opinions.

    I can’t wait to get mine D:
    It seems awesome.
    Being a Zelda fan since I was an infant (my mom used to have me watch her play to calm me down. It worked ^~^), this is definetly a must-have for me, especially with all the great reviews its getting ^u^

    • Rob

      It will be worth it :D

  • MasterOfSwords1

    I just got mine today and I have to say, I am very impressed. Not that I doubted it, but it is just so good. There is so much concept art, history, and an in-depth look at the timeline. This is a must have for any Zelda fan.

  • JeredenDonnar

    I have to wait for my library……

  • baileygirl99

    Ugh!!!!!! My copy STILL hasn’t come in the mail yet (because of some credit card issues :-( ) and I’m getting impatient!!! I need that book to come already! I’m so lonely without it… :P

  • Ryan

    I just got mine today. I went on Zreo and listened to the treasure chest and item get music as I opened the box. What a nerd. The book is huge and impressive. I love it.

  • MoethePoe

    I’ve ordered it on Amazon, waiting for it now! The wait is one to three weeks though… but it seems worth it!

  • Hero of Hyrule 18

    Great book, I’ve never been a huge reader but if you put a textbook with a triforce in front of me u can bet im going cover to cover. Cant wait for Wink Waker Wiiu edition!
