Viz Media’s Perfect Square imprint have announced that they will publish a collected edition of The Legend Of Zelda A Link To The Past graphic novel on May 5th.
Based on the 1992 game of the same name, The Legend Of Zelda A Link To The Past graphic novel was written and drawn by Shotaro Ishinomori (Kamen Rider, Cyborg 009), and was originally serialized in Nintendo Power magazine. It was later collected as a graphic novel, but has been out of print for more than twenty years.
In the announcement, Beth Kawasaki, Perfect Square’s Senior Editorial Director, says, “The Legend Of Zelda A Link To The Past was an extremely popular feature of Nintendo Power magazine when it was first serialized in the early ’90s. Renowned manga and anime artist Shotaro Ishinomori adapted the bestselling game’s storyline and also incorporated new plot elements and characters. The pages are filled with Link’s hard-fought battles on his quest to save Princess Zelda, made even more intense with Ishinomori’s unmistakable art style and captivating storytelling.”
The Legend Of Zelda A Link To The Past is currently available for pre-ordering from Amazon for $15.47.
