Last week we were rather delighted to share the news that The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia is on the way to the West, with all 272 pages of its Zelda goodness making its way out of Japan early next year.
We know enthusiasts will be interested in this, but the question is whether there'll be enough demand to make it worth the publisher's while. The good news for Dark Horse Books is that it's having quite an impact on one of the biggest retailers in the book industry. On amazon.com, at the time of writing, Hyrule Historia is number one on the best-sellers chart, seeing off the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, of all things. That's a video-game themed book, that isn't out until next January, at the top of the charts. The results in the UK aren't bad either, with the book eighth on amazon.co.uk at the time of writing.
It's a small victory for video game culture, and books as a whole, for that matter.
