Zelda Guide Boxset

An awesome looking collector’s Legend of Zelda strategy guide box set is now available for pre-order on Amazon, featuring Prima Official Game Guides for the six most recent games. If you’re willing to to pay the current Amazon price of $152.99 (USD) then don’t wait to pre-order this collection! Since this limited edition set will only be printed once, now’s the time to secure your copy. The set will feature guides for the following games:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (DS)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (GameCube) – check out our impression of the upcoming Wind Waker HD
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (GameCube, Wii)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii) – check out our review of the game for more details

With such a huge lineup, this collection is looking to be pretty promising. All six guides will be hardcover and printed on high quality paper with gilded edges. If you’ve already picked up the guide for Skyward Sword, don’t fret! This will be a revised and updated version of the original guide and will be expanded by over 100 pages.

In addition to the guide books, the set comes with a high quality Zelda themed box, complete with a magnetic clasp. It also contains a metallic, laser etched bookmark and a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by none other than Eiji Aonuma. If you’re still not convinced, it’s also worth noting that this is the first time the guide for Ocarina of Time 3D has been released in hardcover, and it will be exclusive to this set.

All in all, this looks like a pretty nice collection, and would be perfect to pair with your copy of Hyrule Historia. The box set is scheduled for release on November 26th of this year. If you’re dying for more Legend of Zelda in the mean time, Operation Rainfall has you covered. Check out our MOSAIC piece on the series and our impression of the upcoming A Link Between Worlds. And be sure to read the Operation Rainfall Origins pieces on Zelda games and the Building Character editorial on Anju and Kafei.

Hopefully that’s enough reading material to tide you over until this box set is released. If you have the chance, be sure to pre-order it on Amazon or pick up your copy of Hyrule Historia:

    It’s pretty cool looking for a box set, and an interesting idea to have a box set of guides.

    But honestly I wouldn’t pay over $150 for the set. I got my regular version of Hyrule Historia and I’m cool with just that.

  • Ashitaka

    As sweet as it looks, I have the Prima guide for Skyward Sword and it’s terrible. It actually gave me the WRONG info on how to fight the final boss; I was dying until I became so frustrated that I tossed the book away. Going it alone, took me about two minutes to figure out the right way on my own. Haven’t bought anything from Prima since, and likely never will again. Be warned.

    I know if I buy this, it’s going to go in a corner somewhere in my house, and at the end of the day I’ll have dropped over $100 on something I drooled over for half an hour, and MAYBE took to the bathroom to read a few times.

    Great collector’s items… but I know I’m better off beholding them as strategy guides, which they are.

    Official guide?!
    I’ll finally be able to find the triforce in OoT!
