January 23rd, 2013 by Christopher Williams Comments

Okay Zelda fans, it’s time to get giddy for this one. If you’re anything like me you love history and mythology. If this describes you and you’re a Zelda fan to top it off then Dark Horse has a treat for you. On January 29th Hyrule Historia will be hitting comic and book shelves, inside you will find character and history breakdowns for that mythical realm that captures all of our imaginations, Hyrule. Let me tell you folks, the mythology is deep and so is this book. This handsome hardcover contains never-before-seen concept art, the full history of Hyrule, the official chronology of the games, and much more! Starting with an insightful introduction by the legendary producer and video-game designer of Donkey Kong™, Mario™, andThe Legend of Zelda™, Shigeru Miyamoto, this book is crammed full of information about the storied history of Link’s adventures from the creators themselves! As a bonus, The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia includes an exclusive comic by the foremost creator of The Legend of Zelda manga—Akira Himekawa! As a treat we also have this special preview.
