It turns out that Hyrule isn't the only place Link can dominate.

The New York Times yesterday published its list of bestselling books for the week. Sitting atop the "Hardcover Advice & Misc" list was none other than The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia, the book published last month by Dark Horse Books and Nintendo.

The title, which is described as "containing an unparalleled collection of historical information" on the famed franchise, is authored by Akria Himekawa. Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto and the franchise's current steward, Eiji Aonuma, are also given author nods.

The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia beat out a host of prominent titles in its first week on the list, including Shred: The Revolutionary Diet, which came in second place. Rebooting Work hit the list for the first time and landed in third place.

The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia is currently sold out at Amazon, but is expected to be back in the store on Friday. The title is priced at an RRP of US$34.99, but customers can order it from Amazon for US$19.24. Or you could buy it from EB Games for AU$48, but we think we'd rather wait it out.

The evolution of a princess.
