This book – Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts – is a book compiling artwork from the entire history of the Zelda franchise, with this extra special Limited Edition being one of only 10,000 made worldwide. It’ll run you £66.99 as a pre-order via Amazon UK, but keep in mind that these things are all sold out in the US and won’t last long here.

£66.99 seems a bit ludicrous, probably a nice book, but this is expensive even by art book standards. Seems that Nintendo are really trying to push limited availability in lots of their products now, such a shame. 10,000 units isn't even that small for something like this, it'll likely drop in price not long after release.

Cheers, that'll beat my existing US pre-order, given the atrocious state of our currency.

In all fairness, I remember the CE of the Hyrule Historia having a print run of like 4,000 copies. The standard version was scalped to hell, but that dropped since they released more after.

But anyway, I'll bite at £45, damn you Nintendo.

If this is anything like Hyrule Historia it will probably contain around 50% stuff from the upcoming release.

Hyrule Historia was more than a simple art book?

Yep, 4,000 copies. This is 2.5 times that, yes, but still not going to be *that* plentiful.

Ahh, we'll see anyway. £67 still seems high, but if places are pricing at £45, then there is little to argue with there.

"Only 10,000 copies"

​it's OK found the info. charge upfront if paypal and on dispatch via card. Wouldn't have bothered with this book as you're only paying for a fancy cover. pretty sure it's the same inside as the standard but at this price I couldn't say no. thanks for posting

​Thanks for the heads up, used speedy hen a few times, always been decent service.

The potential saving is very tempting but last time I ordered a collectable guide from SpeedyHen I had to return twice due to the guides arriving damaged. Prior to that I preordered one through them via eBay which was cancelled and left me unable to obtain it.

Amazon only got an allocation of 200 and there were 1382 orders.

Speedyhen cancelled for me too, I only put in a order this morning for Book Depository, I highly expect it will get cancelled though. I'd normally pay extra for one off eBay but given the high launch price of the switch I think I'd rather just buy the standard edition.

Had a chat before with an Amazon chat adviser who went to investigate for me. I was gutted as I had a earlier order which I cancelled when the speedyhen deal came up, then reordered when they cancelled. Suppose I'll never know if I was close enough.

Ah, fair enough. Yeah, I'm the same with having cancelled an earlier order - from both Amazon UK and Amazon US.

If you *really* want this edition, you could import it from Barnes & Noble - including shipping, at current exchange rates it works out about £10 more expensive than it would have been from Amazon.

Thanks for the info I guess I must be one of the lucky ones as Amazon.uk has not canceled my order....yet. I pre orderd on the 10th maybe with in the first 15 mins of it been up. but only 200.copys as long as 200 people are getting them and not one person buying like 10-25 copys
