We might be two weeks from 2012 but the Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary festivities aren't over just yet.

Nintendo Japan is to release a Legend of Zelda art book on 22nd December for ¥3255 (£27/$41/€32). At 274 pages long it's a seriously weighty tome, with character and location concept art taken from Zelda's quarter-century.

According to Zelda Universe the book also deals with "The Origin Story" from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and "A Complete History of Hyrule". It's unlikely this will include the fabled Zelda timeline, though we'll see next week.

Here's hoping this book gets an English translation.
