Now that the official localization of Hyrule Historia has been announced, you’re probably wondering about the future of the fan translation project on the site.
Here’s where I have a confession to make: I’m now involved with the official localization. As such, out of respect to Dark Horse, we will not be uploading the remaining untranslated pages, and the fan translation on this site may not be around forever. I encourage you to preorder your own copy of the book at Amazon, so you’ll always have the timeline information and sweet concept art compendium close at hand. As a bonus, you’ll get a $14 discount on the list price of $34.99. You can follow the latest news on the official localization here.
I extend my thanks and appreciation to Snow, Patas, Zeldalady, Beno, Shikage, and FamiliarStranger, who have all helped to make the unofficial translation project happen. Some of them may be joining forces with me to offer future translations at the site.
For those disappointed about the fact that Hyrule Historia will no longer be continuing, rest assured that I have plenty more Zelda material where that came from, including unseen concept art, developer interviews, and game trivia, all direct from Nintendo of Japan. If you don’t feel like checking out the site all the time, you can follow me for updates on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter.
On that note, today is the last day of the Zelda Contest, where you can support the site by voting on which Zelda game’s development you’d like to learn more about.
