This book weighs a fair bit due to the glossy paper and hard cover and you can easily beat a Ganon with it. I love the alternative art for characters through the games and the rich story it tells you. As an added bonus you even get a 32 page manga in the back the predates the Skyward Sword game.
Not gonna post any spoilers but if you love playing Zelda as much as me get this book. The only games it doesn't timeline are the short ones with no real plot like Links crossbow training and the Links game & watch game.
The interior of the book is just absolutely incredible, chock-full of concept sketches and ideas. It's quite unevenly distributed: there's heavy emphasis on Skyward Sword (for good reason I suppose), as well as relatively heavy emphasis on Twilight Princess and (a little bit surprisingly) Spirit Tracks. I'm a little bit sad that the book didn't expand so much on Wind Waker on Ocarina of Time, but nevertheless there are still many new things I learned about the games. The official timeline is also a very interesting read.
Overall, my money was very well spent, a must-have for any Zelda fans!
That being said, the entire book is amazing. Anything that you need to know about the Zelda universe can most likely be found inside. The hardcover is gorgeous with gold and green. The book includes a lot of stuff. The Official Zelda Timeline with detailed descriptions of how each game ties into the next. Like I said, there's a portion reserved for Skyward sword, and then some concept art and details about the other games in the franchise. There's a catalog of each game and even a manga of Zelda at the end.
They were very thorough with the brakdowns, covering seriously like every character ever and most of the enviroments.
Just buy it, seriously if you love Zelda just buy it.
Though the games were not initially planned to be connected, the geniuses behind Historia have woven a thread throughout TLoZ universe which brings our favourite franchise into new perspective, and sheds light on many unanswered questions in the series. I won't ruin anything for those of you who have not read this volume, but know that your questions will be answered in ways that you could not have possibly predicted, and that those answers will not only satisfy, but leave true fans eager to see where the series goes next.
I for one am thrilled with the quality of this volume, the artwork and detail that have gone into every page make this a fantastic item to own. Whether you are a fan of any one game in the series, or the full franchise, this is a book that should be on every gamers shelf.
