  1. I’ve been excited about this for months.

  2. Can’t wait for this. Started checking out some fan translated pages back when it wasn’t getting an English edition and from what I’ve seen it’s gonna be great!

  3. I’m picking this up, hope for that price it is worth it!

  4. Not picking this up with my weekly books, but it shall be mine before long…

  5. All I know is, I read the words “Miyamoto” and “Official Chronology” and nearly fainted.

  6. Huge lifelong Zelda fan, very excited about this. I ordered it on Amazon months ago. I hope there isn’t a major difference between this and the Limited Edition, as I didn’t notice that one when buying! Anyway, can’t wait to take a look at this when it comes in the mail!

  7. I’ve been playing Wind Waker with my 5 years old daughter for a few weeks now (once a week). It brought back fantastic memories and it still feels good as I remembered.

    She would like to play Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword as well but I told her she must wait a few years 🙂

    I played all main games since A Link To The Past and my love for the series is unchanged. I’m really stoked for this book.

  8. Cant wait to pick this up today.

    Also, I hope DH does more with videogames in the future. A Zelda mini-series with Cloonan/Harran on art would be beautiful.

  9. Looking forward to this. Finally, the official timeline…

    @filippod, Wind Waker is getting an HD upgrade for the WiiU in August FYI. Check it out:

  10. Is this good? It looks pretty cool.

    • So much yes. This book covers everything from the very early concepts of Link, Zelda, Ganon and Hyrule, to detailed events in chronological order. Even for casual fans (like my fiance) this book is hard to put down and its one of those that you can find something new each time you pick it up. This book was beautifully constructed and I would recommend it without hesitation. The little Skyward Sword comic in the back was also enjoyable. So once again, yes, it’s good.
