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.
Still, speaking as something of an outsider to the series (have only finished ALBW; meaning to finish OoT 3D; meaning to play TP/SS and getting through Minish Cap), and as a collector of gaming memorabilia, especially artbooks, this is a wonderfully made and lavish effort by Dark Horse and Nintendo. Tons of character designs, production tidbits from Tokyo EAD studio and includes a manga at the end.
It's heavy and substantial; looks great on a shelf or in a stack and serves as a comprehensive tome for all things Zelda.
Only for the most diehard zelda or Nintendo fans. Information is a little boring except for maybe 30% which is great.
Item came nicely packaged so as not to get damaged.
The only “complaint” that I have is that the book has FAR more information on the most recent Zelda (Skyword Sword) than any other, but the amount of content is still very impressive if you want to learn about older games in the series.
This book could easily sell at a bookstore for close to $100 and still be a great piece for any Zelda fan! Highly recommended!
