Dark Horse is bringing its third compendium of Legend of Zelda lore to bookshelves next year with the English edition of The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia.

It covers the series from 1986’s first game through Twilight Princess HD, which launched in 2016 on Wii U. The Encyclopedia is the third and last book in a series comprising it, 2013’s Hyrule Historia, and Art & Artifacts, which released in February of this year.

The 320-page book compiles entries for enemies, items, potions, concept art, screencaps, maps, characters, language and more, Dark Horse said in a news release. It also features an interview with Eiji Aonuma, the producer of Legend of Zelda.

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia had published earlier this year in Japanese. This edition will publish on April 24, 2018 and lists for $39.99. Preorders are being taken at Amazon and and Barnes & Noble.
