It turns out that lots of North American fans actually have been dying to get their hands on Hyrule Hystoria, the colorful hardcover Legend of Zelda art/fact book. Though publisher Dark Horse only announced the book a couple of days ago, it has already shot to the top of Amazon USA’s best-selling list of books. Since the book won’t be available until January 29th, 2013, we’ll assume that this indicates tons of pre-orders.
Perhaps everyone is just taking advantage of that $15 discount Amazon has. The book is listed at $35, but you can pre-order it for $21 from Amazon right now.
