Dark Horse Comics has announced plans to bring The Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia to the United States. The book is set to arrive for $34.99 on January 16, 2013 as a 9” x 12” hardcover with 248 pages.

This marks the first time that Hyrule Historia, which came to Japan in late 2011, will be translated into English. In addition to concept art and the full history of the Zelda franchise, the book also includes Nintendo’s official Zelda timeline, as well as a Zelda comic from manga artist Akira Himekawa. The English version will also include an introduction by Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto.

Usual joke between Amazon site pricing:

Amazon.com = $20.99
Amazon.co.uk = £22.09 ($34.92)

I have never owned a console from Nintendo (YET!), but I couldn't approve this enough: the Japanese-written stuff in my house is growing rapidly, and I can't understand a ****ing word of that :-P

(yet....)
