The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has some gorgeous artwork, from the cover to its promotional material. Zelda fans may be interested in this Breath of the Wild luminart. It features the now iconic image of Link climbing up a mountain with Hyrule in the distance.

The unique aspect of this piece of art is that it lights up in a gold tint. This would make it an excellent decoration in any space, particularly a gaming room or den. The gold lighting gives it a fantasy vibe, which is all too perfect for artwork from The Legend of Zelda.

9 8-BIT LINK AND ZELDA MUG

Link has gone through a major evolution, but he had to start somewhere. The Legend of Zelda has roots that go all the way back to Nintendo's first console, the NES. In that console, characters were represented with low-detail 8-bit sprites.

Fans of The Legend of Zelda should consider this mug that features the 8-bit designs for both Link and the titular Zelda. It would match nicely with any Zelda collection while giving it some classic representation as well. It doesn't change in heat or anything like that, but it makes for a nice mug either for drinking or for decoration.

8 THE LEGEND OF ZELDA LEGENDARY EDITION VOL 2

SEE THE PRICE GAMESTOP

What makes The Legend of Zelda Legendary Edition so great is that it takes the events from the GameBoy games, Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages and puts them in a manga. For people who may find the old games a bit too out-of-date or those who want to see them represented in a new way will be excited to read through this manga.

It puts a great new spin not only on the respective games but on the series formula as a whole. Characters and settings are represented in ways they previously had not been, which makes this book a must-have for fans.

7 TRI-FORCE LIGHT

The Tri-Force is often the McGuffin in The Legend of Zelda. Separated into three parts of equal power, they can come together to form the Tri-Force, which can grant wishes. With the Tri-Force being such an important and mystical object to the series, that makes this Tri-Force light a great item for fans.

Not only can it help illuminate a room or fit nicely with a Zelda display, but it's also representative of what the real Tri-Force would look like. The Tri-Force would glow in reality, which makes this light a replica of sorts. It's also modeled in 3D, making it look great from all angles.

6 CREATING A CHAMPION: HERO'S EDITION

5 THE LEGEND OF ZELDA CHESS SET

Chess is an easy game to play, but it's also a nice game to look at when the pieces are of high quality. The Legend of Zelda fans can now get a piece of the chess pie with this chess set. Players take control of the good or evil side, using Link, Zelda, and their allies or Ganon and his minions to win the battle.

4 BREATH OF THE WILD SHIELD BACKPACK

The Legend of Zelda's timeline can be a confusing one to follow. Understanding this, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia. This book contains the history, timeline, and lore for all the Zelda games released by 2013.

You'll be surprised to find out which entries are sequels and which ones take place in alternate timelines. It's the ultimate companion for any The Legend of Zelda fan.
