Third Edition Books is a French publisher that focuses on publishing books detailing video game sagas. Since 2015, the team at Third Edition Books has published more than 40 books covering many popular video game series including Final Fantasy, Dark Souls, Pokemon, and, of course, The Legend of Zelda.

Third Edition Books began a Kickstarter earlier this month seeking to translate three of their books to English: The Legend of Zelda, Dark Souls, and Final Fantasy VII. The Kickstarter has already reached 80 percent of their goal, and the team is looking at adding additional books to the project as stretch goals.

The team at Third Edition Books are already experienced with publishing, and if their campaign is successful, this could just be the start of publishing in English. You can read more about the project and support the project on their Kickstarter campaign page.

The team sent me a copy of The Legend of Zelda book, in French, to take a look at. Unfortunately, I cannot read it, but the book itself is beautiful. The book has over 200 pages covering the entire series’ history, from the original Legend of Zelda all the way through Tri Force Heroes.


I am sure you guys are mesmerized by the beauty that is the GIF above, so rest assured that there will be another article coming soon including pictures of the French book the team sent me. Hopefully seeing its gorgeous pages for yourselves will help convince you to support the project!
