"A Must Have For Any Zelda Fan"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book is pure class. One of, if not the best presented gaming related book I've ever seen. Everything is in here, from the start of the series. Beautiful concept art, inside details about the story and characters.

I could read it all day. Must buy.

"Worth the price and alot more!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought the Japanese edition when it realeased but unfortunately I cannot read japanese. I was very happy when I heard Darkhorse comics would release a full english version and have all the original artwork from the japanese version. Its awesome from the first page to the last.

A must for fans of the legendary Zelda series.

"Worth the effort"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It is a large book, and I found it instantly interesting! The concept art is definitely a major focus, and that isn't at all a problem, the next best thing would have to be the official timeline, so I wouldn't regret buying this ever

"Something a zelda fan needs!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

if you have played even just one of the many zelda titles there are, this is a must have to learn pretty much EVERYTHING about the story and how ALL the zelda games timelines come together. With over 200 pages to read through with beautiful artwork through out the whole book you'd be missing out on one of the best things Nintendo has EVER made (:

"Worth the price"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'll be frank: I was a bit concern about this purchase as the price was a bit high. BUT! Like everyone says! It's absolutely worth it! If you're indeed a Zelda fan, you'll enjoy the many in-detail illustrations, the mini comic book and the awesome messages from the creator. It is, quite right: the Triforce of Books.
