Nintendo recently announced that they are hosting a launch party for the A Link to the Past graphic novel at the Nintendo World Store on May 1 from 6-8pm, four days before the book’s official release. They have now announced through Instagram that they will be giving away exclusive posters to the first 1,000 purchasers of the graphic novel.

The A Link to the Past graphic novel was written by Shotaro Ishinomori and originally appeared in Nintendo Power in 1992. This year, Viz Media licensed the work and are releasing it as a single volume.


While I’m ecstatic that the novel is finally getting a proper release, fans in the New York City area should definitely check out the launch party if they can. Free, exclusive content is always a plus, and with the added bonus of being able to get the A Link to the Past novel early, it’s really a no-brainer. As an avid Zelda poster collector and a huge A Link to the Past fan myself, I sure wish I could go!
