Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia tops Amazon best sellers

Zelda encyclopedia spends 92 days in top 100 books list

The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia, has reached the top of Amazon's best-selling books list, usurping the plethora of self help fitness books and Fifty Shades of Grey cash-ins.


The 274-page Zelda-bible previously reached the top of the chart in August, and has returned to top of the ranking after having spent 92 days in the top 100.

The limited collector's item was created by Nintendo and published in Japan by Shogakukan Japan. The English edition is published by Dark Horse comics.

Unsurprisingly, the book has been coveted by fans of Nintendo's much-loved adventure series. It contains a complete history of the Zelda universe, unseen concept art, the full history of Hyrule, an intro penned by Shigeru Miyamoto, an exclusive Zelda manga and more.

Most notably, it also features a timeline officially endorsed by Nintendo, which has been the subject of much fan speculation until now.

Last week Nintendo announced plans to launch The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD on Wii U this Autumn. The re-release will offer an 'improved' game experience and support off-TV GamePad play.

Series producer Eiji Aonuma also teased that the development team will 'rethink series conventions' for the new Wii U Zelda.
