Nintendo Japan to Release Stunning Zelda Art Book

Cover to covet

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.
