Piggyback started in 1999 with the 148-page guide to Metal Gear Solid. Twenty-four years later, we find ourselves releasing the 500-page official guide to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in five languages and across four continents. In that 24-year period, we selected one game every year or so and invested all of our resources into creating its exclusive, complete official guide. We have the industry’s largest guide development team, composed of authors, designers, translators, map, screenshot and functionality editors.
Each new Piggyback project presents opportunities for innovation; be those chapter concepts, gameplay flowcharts, imaging technologies, data tables, no-spoiler solutions, instant-search tools, custom layouts, enhanced production values and new editions (collector’s, deluxe, expanded, and digital). Through close collaboration with the game company, each of our books becomes a tangible display of everything in the game, a collector’s item that serves as a companion which showcases the gameplay, creativity, and vision of the team.
