Dark Horse Comics has been working closely alongside Nintendo for quite some time now, offering fans a fantastic collection of books providing artwork, info, and background lore that might have otherwise slipped under the radar. The company isn't done just yet, either, as it has now announced yet another book for the series.
This latest instalment is called 'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild--Creating A Champion' (the version you can see above is a newly-announced hardcover 'Hero's Edition'). This deluxe edition of the book features a slipcase with Link's recently rediscovered blue colouring, an exclusive cover for the book itself, a map of Hyrule printed on cloth, an art print of the Champions' photo Link hangs in his Hateno home, and a beautiful glass replica of a spirit orb. We have to admit, it's pretty spectacular.
But what exactly is buried deep within those lovely pages?
- Nearly 50 pages of sketches and official illustrations from Takumi Wada
- 296 Pages of design artwork and commentary about the making of the game from creators
- 55 Page historical section that divulges an in-depth history of the Hyrule of Breath of the Wild
- Interviews with key members of the development team including Hidemaro Fujibayashi, Satoru Takizawa, Takumi Wada, and Eiji Aonuma
The book is scheduled to be released on 20th November this year and is currently available to pre-order. Be warned, though, that this little beauty will currently set you back $99.99.
