Hey, remember that gorgeous book filled with concept art and background information regarding Hyrule’s history that Nintendo released in Japan back in 2011? Y’know, the one that made fans of the series flip out because it revealed no less than three official timelines in the Zelda universe? Well it’s finally been translated into Engrish and is sitting on store shelves as you read this just waiting to be overpriced on ebay. As usual Nintendo held a little launch event at their world store in Times Square to commemorate the release. Which of course means that virgins from all over the great state of New York borrowed cash from their parents for the train into Manhattan to check it out. A costume contest was held with all kinds of cool prizes including plush dolls and t-shirts and luckily for us, one youtube user was on hand to document this gathering of pure, raw, uncut nerdery.
I uh, just…yeah. Oh man, those two on the far left. Wow, that’s really something. Hyrule Historia is available now at the suggested retail price of $34.99 if you happen to still have any bookstores left in your town. Or, you could always hop on over to Amazon to snag yourself a copy and save a few bucks.
