The Legend of Zelda(TM) is among the most successful franchises of all time with nearly twenty video games and thirty years of history, but it began with a gold cartridge…
The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia Deluxe Edition honors the game that began it all by recreating the original gold cartridge as faithfully as conceivable. The book comes with a black polypropylene sleeve, lined with velvet flocking, and a scale instruction booklet with fun, theme-appropriate material inside.
The cover is a gold foil paper with gloss lamination and a spot gritty varnish. The main points are embossed and debossed. It has gold gilding at the top and foredge, with black gilding at the bottom. This book looks and feels such a lot like the original cartridge you might find yourself blowing into the bottom before you open it!
A comprehensive selection of enemies and items, potions to poes, an expansion of the lore touched upon in Hyrule Historia, concept art, screencaps, maps, main characters and how they relate, languages, and much, a lot more, including an exclusive interview with Series Producer, Eiji Aonuma! This, the last of The Goddess Collection trilogy, which includes Hyrule Historia and Art & Artifacts, is a treasure trove of explanations and information about each aspect of The Legend of Zelda universe!
Celebrate over thirty years of The Legend of Zelda with a heartfelt homage to the origins of this legendary franchise!
