Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild—Creating a Champion art book, which will go on sale November 2018. I am looking forward to picking up this work to see how the world was developed since this game is the only reason I’m owning a Nintendo Switch.

This work is the latest addition to Dark Horse and Nintendo’s bestselling publishing line and is preceded by The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule HistoriaThe Legend of Zelda: Art & ArtifactsThe Legend of Zelda EncyclopediaThe Art of Splatoon, and The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening.

This oversized hardcover is the ultimate companion to the award-winning video game The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild and includes material from both of its DLC packs. This book features nearly 50 pages of sketches and official illustrations from Takumi Wada, 296 pages of design artwork and commentary about the making of the game from the creators, a 55-page historical section that divulges the history of Hyrule as it is known in-game, and interviews with key members of the development team— Hidemaro Fujibayashi, Satoru Takizawa, Takumi Wada, and Eiji Aonuma. Witness the making of a champion! The breathtaking cover is by Takumi Wada.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild—Creating a Champion goes on sale at the end of the year, just in time for being the perfect Christmas gift for the Zelda fan in the family. It is available for pre-order on Amazon and at your local comic shop. This 424-page tome retails for $39.99.
