The Legend of Zelda: Encyclopedia is a book released to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series. It is the final book in the Goddess Collection trilogy.


Encyclopedia is divided into three chapters spanning from The Legend of Zelda to Twilight Princess HD. The first one is a visual encyclopedia explaining keywords like the Master Sword and Hyrule. The second one is a list of enemies, items, dungeons, and more. The third and final chapter features archives with explanatory notes and storylines of each game in the series.[2]

A deluxe edition designed after the golden cartridge from the original The Legend of Zelda will also be released. This edition features gilded pages and comes with a scale instruction booklet and a sleeve based on the dust covers included with NES games.[3]
