Updated: Oct. 27, 2017
Good news! The Deluxe Edition of the The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia has gone up on Amazon today. As of press time they are selling it for 40% off. That saves you $32 and brings it down to $47.99. Not bad!
The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia has been announced for release on April 24, 2018. The regular edition of this comprehensive 320-page book is already available for pre-order on Amazon. According to the official description, the book contains:
This 320-page book is an exhaustive guide to The Legend of Zelda from the original The Legend of Zelda to Twilight Princess HD.
A comprehensive collection of enemies and items, potions to poes, an expansion of the lore touched upon in Hyrule Historia, concept art, screencaps, maps, main characters and how they relate, languages, and much, much more, including an exclusive interview with Series Producer, Eiji Aonuma! This, the last of The Goddess Collection trilogy, which includes Hyrule Historia and Art & Artifacts, is a treasure trove of explanations and information about every aspect of The Legend of Zelda universe!
An exhaustive compendium of everything from the first 30 years of The Legend of Zelda.
An expansion of information from The Legend of Zelda timeline.
Rare development sketches of your favorite characters.
An extensive database of items and enemies.
What’s exciting is that a new collector’s edition of the encyclopedia has been announced! It will be covered in gold foil paper and replicates the original The Legend of Zelda gold Game Pak for the NES! It even comes with a slip cover, which is really awesome. The suggested retail price is steep: $79.99, but hopefully sites like Amazon will offer up some discounted offers. As of press time Amazon didn’t seem to have a listing yet for it, but we expect that to change in the next few days.
