The website Kotaku began hosting a full preview of the 35-page bonus manga The Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword included in Dark Horse's release of The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia encyclopedia on Tuesday. Drawn by the artist duo known as Akira Himekawa (Astro Boy - Tetsuwan Atom, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass), the story takes place within the timeline of last year's top-selling Wii game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Dark Horse Comics will release The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia encyclopedia on January 29, 2013, about two weeks later than its original scheduled date. The company is partnering with Nintendo to release the full-color book. The hardcover encyclopedia will contain 248 pages and will retail for US$34.99. It covers the full history of The Legend of Zelda franchise and will include an introduction by famed game designer and producer Shigeru Miyamoto. It will also include the official chronology of The Legend of Zelda games, concept art, and information on the making of the franchise.

Pre-orders the encyclopedia usurped E.L. James' Fifty Shades Trilogy in August and Dark Horse streamed a trailer for the volume last month.
