Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild official guide listing reveals just how busy you'll be

Ok, there's no story spoilers here but stop reading now if you don't want to know the number of dungeons, puzzles and side-quests in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.Consider yourself warned. As reported by Nintendo Insider, a listing on Amazon UK which has now been pulled - although you can see a cached version here -  shows the official hardcover guide and comes complete with in depth info on what's to come. You didn't have plans other than playing Switchor Wii U for the rest of the year, did you? Here's the full listing. 

  • Collector's Edition bonus: Premium hardcover, large-size map poster and dedicated 16-page retrospective celebrating thirty years of Zelda games.
  • At-a-glance Walkthroughs: Annotated maps and screenshots show you the way through every quest and dungeon.
  • Utterly Comprehensive: 120 Shrine mini-dungeons, 900 Korok seed puzzles, 76 side quests all mapped out and ready for you to discover and complete! Also includes optional challenges, mini-games, unlockables, Easter eggs, and more.
  • Puzzle Master: Every single puzzle and riddle unraveled with clear, visual solutions.
  • Expert combat strategy: Practical, reproducible tactics to crush your enemies, even the toughest bosses.
  • Comprehensive reference: Exhaustive appraisals of all items and monsters including key parameters that are hidden in the game.
  • Extra large map poster: Covering the entire game world
  • Quality control: Carefully designed to avoid unnecessary story spoilers.

So yes, you read that right. Inside that "premium hardcover" is a guide to 120 Shrine Mini Dungeons and 900 Korok Seed puzzles. Is 900 of anything too much? I'm going to say no... This is just further proof that Breath of the Wild is going to be absolutely enormous and while it's one of only a handful of launch titles, it's going to be a serious undertaking. The book itself will be out on the same day as the game on March 3. Not long to go now, folks...
