JANUARY 30, MILWAUKIE, OR–Following the incredibly successful prelaunch event at the Nintendo World Store in New York City, where some fans waited for twenty-four hours in below-freezing temperatures, The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia™ makes its official debut in comic shops and bookstores this week.
