The latest Hylian epic is one of Link’s most celebrated, and every aspect of it is boldly illustrated in Breath of the Wild Creating a Champion.

This massive tome is the ultimate companion to the celebrated Switch game that still has Zelda fans reeling. There are 50 pages of sketches and illustrations by Takumi Wada, featuring everything from enemies to weapons, and even food. Along with 296 pages of gorgeous design, there’s commentary about the game’s development, straight from creators like Satoru Takizawa and Eiji Aonuma. And if you’re a lore buff, there are even 55 pages dedicated to the in-depth history of Hyrule in Breath of the Wild. 

Gorgeous as the book may be if you spring for the Hero’s Edition, there’s even more treasure available. It also comes with a deluxe royal blue slipcase, an exclusive cover, an art print featuring the champions of Hyrule, and even a map on printed cloth. Hidden away in this box is also a glass replica of a Spirit Orb, in case you’re looking to upgrade your health or stamina. 

This legendary art book releases on November 20 and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $99. If you’re not after all the extra goodies, you can get the standalone book for $23.
