UPDATE: Investigating Amazon and Barnes & Noble brings up this mysterious listing for The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia Limited Collector’s Edition. It hasn’t been officially announced, so no real details are known beyond what’s on the listing, but at more than double the price of the version many pre-ordered back in August, it’s sure to be something special. Here’s what the listing says:
The limited edition of Hyrule Historia looks like it could have been pulled off the shelf of one of the sages in Hyrule. The faux-leather hardcover bears the symbol of the Gate of Time, debossed, on the cover, and gold gilded pages.
