“We thought it would be a pain if the stores were all over the place when you came back to resupply from your adventures, so we made them into a kind of market. Did you notice that the music changes for each stall as you move around?” (Fujibayashi, Director/Hisada, Designer)

The Knight Academy
“While we were thinking about a game that could be a sort of tutorial stage (it later became the Wing Ceremony), we knew we wanted 3 rivals for Link.

As I currently have no other medium to publicly share large amounts of text, I will be posting my translation of the book Hyrule Historia here for anyone to read. I don’t have a scanner now, so I won’t be able to post scans of the book, but I will include pictures where I can.
I hope you enjoy, and any feedback is welcome =)
