Hyrule Historia Tops Amazon List of Best Selling Books


As mentioned briefly on the latest episode of Infendo Radio, Eugene, Scott, and myself are eagerly awaiting our copies of Hyrule Historia (the Dark Horse-published/Nintendo commisioned encyclopedia dedicated to The Legend of Zelda) to arrive in our respective mailboxes. Until then, Amazon has listed that Hyrule Historia is currently their top selling book in the United States. Hyrule Historia etched out Shred: The Revolutionary Diet by Ian K. Smith for the top spot, so one can assume that the nation’s priorities lie with the world of Zelda as opposed to a healthy living…or something to extent.

The 272-page Hyrule Historia should be hitting consumer’s mailboxes this week, but it can be purchased at major book retailers and the Nintendo World Store in New York City, which held a release party (hosted by Dark Horse Publications) last week.

For those who have gotten their hands on Hyrule Historia, what do you think so far? Tell us in the comments below.

Harrison Milfeld is a writer, editor, and freelance journalist from Missouri. Ever since he could walk, Harrison has been an avid fan of the world of Nintendo. For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.


  1. Yeah I would have it too if Walmart didn’t cancel it. I thought they take the money off the credit immediately after you preodered it , but apparently not 🙁

  2. I’m not sure when mine will ship, as it’s my first time ordering anything from tfaw (things from another world).. Hopefully I get a shipment notification soon. 🙂

  3. @Hitokiri
    You should have ordered from Amazon! Tfaw had the highest price from the sites they listed to order from, AND Amazon promises the book should arrive the day of release (today). I know mine shipped about 3 days ago, so I’m expecting to get it once I get home from work today.

  4. Ya, but um… The Limited Edition doesn’t come out for 2 more weeks (From what I’ve read at least…?) Not really their fault. Also, I never saw Amazon listing the LE.. so I cancelled my Amazon order, and jumped ship.

  5. I want to order it now but it says it won’t ship for 2-4 weeks…I’d be ordering from amazon.de.

  6. Order the LE on amazon.com the very short time it was out for purchase. Now I just have to want some weeks for it to ship. Can’t wait to look through it.
