Viz Posts The Legend Of Zelda Comic-Con Panel Video

Are you an ardent Nintendo fan who couldn’t make it to this year’s Comic-Con? Did you want to catch the big Zelda panel, but couldn’t bear to give up your spot in line for Hall H? Did the lure of con-exclusive merch pull you away from the panels and presentations on the show floor?

The folks at Viz have you covered. Yesterday, the company posted the entirety of its The Legend of Zelda panel to its YouTube channel.

The 20-minute presentation featured games writer Chris Kohler and Viz Media Senior Editorial Director Beth Kawasaki, as they discuss Shotaro Ishinomori’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past manga, from the history to the restoration process and the crazy hoops that needed to be jumped through to acquire the license.

For those who are interested in this recently re-released classic, it’s definitely worth a watch.

Those who want the gist of things are in luck, as well. Viz also published an abbreviated digest of the event, which features only the biggest happenings.

Five Points Fest 2024: Henbo Talks With Anime Herald

"Akira was one of my favorite things I ever saw. My friend Mike, he was an illustrator in the same course as me, he introduced me to it. It was mind-blowing. Anything with movement like that, I was like 'This is insane.'"
