Prima Games, renowned for their excellent in-depth strategy walkthroughs, will be releasing a hardcover guide for Hyrule Warriors. It will be released on the same day as the US launch of the game itself, September 26. It is now available to pre-order on Amazon US for $28.06 and Amazon UK for £17.12.

The book cover in the image above isn’t the final design, but the Amazon listing does hint at what content you can expect to find within the pages. The guide will provide “Complete breakdowns on how to unlock each character” and “Details on how to prepare for each battle”.

As well as the guide, the book will also include a “bonus section” which provides a behind-the-scenes look at Hyrule Warriors‘ art, and you will receive a free digital version of the guide to use on “any PC or mobile device”.

As you may have gathered from the headline, that isn’t the only strategy guide that Prima will be publishing later this year; there will also be a hardcover guide for Bayonetta 2.

So why should you care? Well, aside from it being a promising sequel to an excellent game, you might recall that the original Bayonetta will be packaged with the game; wherein Zelda costumes and sound effects were revealed as unlockable. It’s unclear whether or not the guide will provide a walkthrough for the original Bayonetta as well as its sequel, but if so, then this guide might be a consideration for you hardcore Zelda collectors.

A release date hasn’t been revealed for the Bayonetta 2 guide, though we’d assume that it will coincide with the game’s eventual release. It is available to pre-order on Amazon US for $29.78 and Amazon UK for £16.99.

    Will it look like “The Legend of Zelda Box Set: Prima Official Game Guide” will it have the same dimensions and art style, I’d like to know before I pre-order.

    Free digital version for mobile devices with the book actually sounds like it might tempt me toward getting it.
