    Update: For those asking how much content this book will have, it has 304 pages which is about 70 more pages than hyrule historia so expect a lot of artwork!
    Dark Horse has just announced that they will be releasing a new localisation of a Zelda book based around the art of previous Zelda games, as well as some sneak-peek art of the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. The Japanese version of the book will be releasing on the 26th of August, while the North American version is set for a Feb 2017 release. It will be releasing at $39.99 price tag for pre-orders and there's no news right now of a Europe release, so importing might be the only option for those outside the USA and Canada.

    I'll update this thread once more news comes up and I get my hands on the JP editon.

    'the japanese book will come out in 3 days, so, it will take us about half a year to translate all the text in this art book" lol...

    Why no European release info? :( Oh well.. At least Play-Asia ships it to the Netherlands too. For over 20 euro's shipping :cry:

    When I got a Wii, the Wii U was getting "popular" and the Wii slowly dying. So yeah, that was also my reaction xD

    My point is, you should always expect something newer and better to arise in the future. Plus this book is more like a sequel in a series rather than a replacement.

    Please stop this. Persona 5 will already leave a hole in my pocket.

    Square Enix has some hard-hitters bustin' wallets comin' up, too. Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, and DragonQuest XI. And apparently there's a new Tales game, too.

    Have you seen the devs handwriting? They might need half a year to decipher all that chikenscratch.xd
