One of the most exciting parts about Nintendo's upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword isn't so much the thought of playing another (and possibly great) Zelda game, but finally (finally!!) having an orchestrated soundtrack playing in the background. It's taken a full quarter-century to pull it off, but thanks to those talented folks in Japan and at the Bastyr Chapel in Kenmore, Washington, miracles certainly can come true. Fans who pick up first-run copies of the game next week will get a free copy of The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD, and now we're getting a rare glimpse of just how that magical music is made.
Usually the stuff of fan-made videos and the Tommy Tallarico tours, Nintendo pulled all the stops to bring one of the most celebrated soundtracks to orchestrated life, much like they did with Super Mario Galaxy's amazing themes, and are making the occassion even more magical by literally GIVING it away to those loyal enough to actually pay for the game. What a way to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Zelda franchise, and what a soundtrack!
