The highly-anticipated Zelda Box Set release date is fast approaching, and Prima Games has revealed new details about the certificate of authenticity and bookmark that will be included with the set. Click the jump to read more and see photos!
Purchasing the Zelda Box Set will get you six hardcover Zelda Collector’s Edition strategy guides housed inside a treasure chest book holder. Inside, you will also discover an individually numbered certificate of authenticity with a signature and special message from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma himself! The certificate, which measures 8 1/2” by 5 1/2”, is printed on high quality textured art paper. There will only be one production run of the Zelda Box Set, therefore each certificate is numbered with a unique number for each box set, as well as the total number printed. The certificate has a special message from Aonuma, including his signature stamped in gold foil. Aonuma’s original handwritten message is shown below:
Although we do not yet know what the message is, Prima Games says it is an original message from Aonuma addressed directly to Zelda fans. Jesse Anderson, Prima Product Manager, has read the message and had the following to say:
“As a fan of The Legend of Zelda, I was very excited to see the message and know that Mr. Aonuma himself wrote it.”
The Box Set will also include a 2-sided, laser etched metallic bookmark, beautifully crafted from golden-plated brass. The bookmark comes in a clear, plastic protective sleeve and measures 7.5” x 2.5”. On the front is the Zelda logo, while on the back is an image of the Hyrule Crest.
The Zelda Box Set is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and GameStop. The release date is set at November 26 for the US and Canada. Although there is no European release date yet, you can still pre-order the set at Amazon UK. Currently, Amazon has the best price at $112.61.
