Now for some news that's bound to make plety of my otaku friends, as well as the leg ion of Zelda fans very happy. 

Viz Media announced that 10 volumes of The Legend of Zelda manga, which has been in publication in Japan since 1998 and only recently translated and released for western auidences, have been released in a boxset to celebrate the franchise's 25th Anniversary!

The set, which spans Link's adventures from such classics as A Link To The Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, The Minish Cap, Four Swords, Oracle of Seasons, and The Phantom Hourglass will cost $69.99 (although I have seen it for about $50 on Amazon). 

This might sound a bit expensive to those who aren't really into anime/manga but $69.99 is actually a pretty good price considering that individual manga volumes tend to cost $10-$15 (depending on the seires, where you buy it, or if it's either new or used). So really, roughly $70 for 10 volumes is actually a savings of at least $30 , which is pretty damn sweet!
