Ehhh but then you're on the hook for every revision of the book.

Still on the fence.


You can still get the book for what it is and enjoy its content. At the very least, I would get the first edition and skip the revisions until there's been a significant amount of revisions. I would think that the main focus of this book is art, and original art will always be unique. Just out of curiosity, could you give me a few examples of what has been revised in previous Zelda games?

A friend of mine said that there are no Preorders for the LE. it's first come first serve for those at Nintendo World.


Incorrect, there are definitely preorders for the LE. At this point in time, there may not be any left but there were definitely preorders for the LE. I have a receipt in my wallet for my preorders that I purchased.

No kidding, the book is $20. Even if it's only accurate for a few months or until the next Zelda game comes out, who cares? Just enjoy it for what it is.

It will become outdated, sure, but it's not like they release that many Zelda games anyway. The next one is supposed to be some giant Wii U game that will take years to make and be huge. This book should be complete for the next couple of years at least. Even then, it will only be missing one game for another long while--BFD.

What are you talking about? The book is still available for preorder. I doubt anyone is that upset about gold paint and a leatherette cover at 2 times or more the price.

Which is why FF7 black label says for how much because of the color of its label when it is a couple bucks digital. Same with anything collectable. If no one wanted them, they would all be worthless or the same price as reprints, opened, standard or original items.

Not one single person is pissed off at missing The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy Boxed Set when the reprint is being made, right?

I'm not following your argument. The guy is making a claim (ridiculous IMHO) that the fact that the mythology of Zelda keeps getting updated is preventing him from jumping on what he feels is an incomplete or sure to be altered book in future pressings. The collector's edition and the regular edition are internally identical. While there are some people that may care about and are willing to spend more for the CE, that has nothing to do with his argument as the collector's edition would have the same flaw. I can only speak for myself, but for $20 I'm perfectly happy with something I am only going to flip through a few times anyway. I'm not a reseller and not an artbook collector, so even at the Amazon discounted price the CE isn't something I really want or need.

No dumbass, that's not it at all.

Every game in the Zelda timeline changes what happened in the games beforehand. This book isn't just pictures it's also explanations and history of all the games. Every single Zelda game from the SNES forward has changed what happened in previous games which means once the newest Zelda game is released at least one of these entries will be incomplete at the very best, wrong at the very worst.


Woah calm down with the name calling, we get it, you're butthurt about not getting it, just chill out.

Besides, from what I've seen of the translated Japanese release, they all fit together anyway. Sure, there are 3 alternate timelines, but new games don't change those, they add to it. Your perception of how the pieces all fit together may have to change for a new game, but now that there is an established timeline, any new game will simply be placed somewhere in it. It's really not that hard to understand and 'lol' at the person shitting their pants over it.

I think we're safe with TFAW. We knew amazon.uk wasn't going to get any. Forbidding Planet is on the blog post so their most likely good. The only retailer left from the blog post that hasn't listed it yet is Think Geek. I have a feeling B&N will have some as well.

I'm getting my copy this Friday because I will be going to the huge event at the Nintendo World Store in NYC. The employee told me there will be people dressing up, games, etc. Wondering if I should take some pictures of the event, costumes and any other goodies they have there and post them in this thread. It might give you Zelda fans a little something to tide you over until the official release date next week?

Do you think mods will delete pictures pertaining to this book and the launch event if I post them in this thread or should I start a new thread in the Nintendo forum thread? Do you guys even want pictures?

Let me know.

Yes, I definitely want to see what the book looks like. It's quality. You shouldn't have any problems showing some pics of the event.
