A couple of days ago we revealed that the much anticipated Zelda guidebook Hyrule Historia would be releasing, not only in standard form, but also in a limited edition binding as well. Described as a “limited collector’s edition” you would suspect that this special version of Hyrule Historia would be scarcely printed and may only be exclusively sold in certain stores. Well, it turns out that this is the case! Book publisher for Hyrule Historia, Dark Horse, has announced that only 4,000 copies have been reserved for purchasing the limited edition with a mere seven retailers confirmed to be stocking it.
You can find out more details plus where you may place an order for the limited edition Hyrule Historia after the jump!
