The Legend Of Zelda Books Are B2G1 Free At Amazon In Early Prime Day Sale


Target and Amazon are each hosting wide-ranging buy two, get one free promotions on video games, books, movies, board games, and more. You won’t find Nintendo Switch games in the catalogs, but you can get some pretty awesome books about one of Nintendo’s most iconic franchises: The Legend of Zelda. Both sales include the stellar Zelda art and lore books published by Dark Horse. These offers will be available at Target until its Circle Week sale ends on July 13. There are tons of other gaming books included in these sales, including over a dozen upcoming books you can preorder at Target.

Amazon’s sale ends at the same time, but unlike Target, Amazon has a habit of removing products from B2G1 free eligibility at random–some of these Zelda books weren’t eligible when the sale started. Amazon also has a few steep early Prime Day discounts on collector’s edition versions of The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia and Breath of the Wild: Creating a Champion.

Now’s a great time to pick up all of the official Zelda art books. There are four core books in Dark Horse’s “series” of official hardcover books. The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia offers in-depth look at how the many incarnations of Hyrule and its characters connect to one another. The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia covers every game from the original through Twilight Princess HD and is another must-read book for Zelda fans. Meanwhile, The Legend of Zelda: Arts & Artifacts is a beautiful art book to flip through.

Creating a Champion explores the work that went into creating Breath of the Wild. It features a detailed history of the game’s version of Hyrule and is jam-packed with sketches, concept art, and commentary from the team behind the modern classic.

Speaking of Breath of the Wild, you can also pick up the official strategy guide in hardcover for nearly 50% off at Amazon. It covers the base game and the challenging DLC. The strategy guide for Breath of the Wild’s sequel, Tears of the Kingdom, is likewise eligible for buy two, get one free. You can get the collector’s edition hardcover for $27 at either retailer, and Target also has the paperback version for $19. Both of these guides cover every detail needed to complete every objective across Hyrule’s sprawling open world. The guides for Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom are mammoth books, clocking in around 500 pages each.

Several other Zelda books are included in the B2G1 free sales, including The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past’s graphic novel adaptation of the official manga, and the Legendary edition of the Ocarina of Time manga, which is the first entry in the series. Though not eligible for the promotion, you can purchase the full Legendary edition set, which comes bundled in a treasure chest case, for $87 at Amazon. Amazon is also offering a discount on the upcoming box set of the Twilight Princess manga.

For the collectors out there, the deluxe edition of The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia comes with a slipcase and cover that matches the original NES game’s gold cartridge. The Hero’s edition of Creating a Champion is also on sale for a steep discount. Make sure to click the coupon boxes at Amazon to get the full discount. Amazon’s prices are better for the deluxe editions, but both books are eligible for Target’s B2G1 promotion.
