Hyrule Historia’s New Cover

1

Earlier this year, we published a story about Hyrule Historia getting a release here in the States. While this release is still a while away, Dark Horse Comics, the company behind the American release, has posted a new piece of cover art and a trailer, for the highly anticipated book.

When asked about the reasoning behind the cover change, editor Patrick Thorpe responded with,

This is the official cover for the North American version of The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia. The logo and gold colored design elements will be gold foil stamped. The large symbol on the cover is the Gate of Time from Skyward Sword. We felt that it was appropriate for a number of reasons. Hyrule Historia is a history book, not only about the development of the games, but the history of Hyrule as well. We wanted the reader to feel like they were stepping through the gate, back in time, and experiencing all aspects of the Legend of Zelda. As keen-eyed Zelda fans will tell you, the three symbols surrounding the triforce are the symbols of the three goddesses who… well, I’ll let you read the book to find out their signifance. But we loved the gate’s symbol because it is fraught with meaning, much of which is explained in different sections of the book, and appear again and again throughout the series. One of the other reasons is that there are Skyward Sword sections that bookend Hyrule Historia. It felt appropriate to put a symbol from the 25th anniversary game on the cover. I hope that you all like it as much as we do.

This trailer was also released to help highlight some of the book’s features.
