Hyrule Historia

A few years ago now, The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia burst onto the scene as an absolutely must-own book which covered the history of the Zelda series. It was so good, in fact, that it ended up being the number one best-selling book in the US soon after launch.

If you never managed to get your hands on it, or didn't feel like forking over the $39.99 recommended retail price, you might want to consider this brand new digital version. A listing on Amazon has revealed that the book is arriving digitally this April, with the release date currently set for the 14th.

We actually posted a book review for Hyrule Historia way back in 2013; if you're wanting to know more about it, make sure to give that a good read. Here's a snippet:

Packed with information and lavishly produced, Hyrule Historia was always going to be a standout publication. However, its depth and detail have surprised even us. Few video game franchises could ever hope to support such a weighty and significant book, and even if you’ve only a passing interest in the adventures of Link, this should be a permanent addition to your coffee table or bookshelf. Our fingers are crossed that the same treatment can be offered to other key Nintendo properties in the future.
