VIZ Media to release The Legend of Zelda Manga Box Set
VIZ Media are to release The Legend of Zelda Manga Box Set to coincide with the series’ 25th anniversary celebrations.
The manga series was created by Akira Himekawa, which is the pen name of two women known simply as A. Honda and S. Nagano, and the pair have created nine adventures featuring Link and the popular video game world of The Legend of Zelda series, including Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Seasons and Four Swords. Their most recent work, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, was serialised in Japan in the children’s magazine Shogaku Rokunensei, published by Shogakukan.
“The Legend of Zelda Manga Box Set bundles Link’s entire magical quest into a single collection that is a must-read for any true fan of the classic video game,” says Beth Kawasaki, Senior Editorial Director of Children’s Publishing. “The series wonderfully transforms the game’s fast-paced action into a linear storyline, and has been a consistent bestseller since VIZ Media published the first volume in 2008. This new box set is an eye-catching way to revisit the entire series and commemorate the 25th Anniversary of this groundbreaking game title.”
The Legend of Zelda Manga Box Set, which includes all ten volumes of the fantasy action adventure series as well as a full colour poster, is now available across North America and Canada priced at $69.99 U.S./$80.99 CAN.
