And Now….Zelda Live.
One of the most inspirational times in video games was made relevant this year at E3. The Nintendo press conference started and the orchestra rose. It was one of those inspirational moments where things move in slow motion and you feel kind of sappy and lame for even getting emotional. One thing is for sure, that damn Saria’s song still gets me. Well at least now it can get you too.
On October 15th, songs handpicked by Nintendo composer Koji Kondo and his team will be well represented in Los Angeles, CA. If you are anywhere near the Pontages Theater in Los Angeles at around, oh say, 8:00 P.M., well get your ticket here and get ready for the experience of a life time.
“The Legend of Zelda has few peers in the pantheon of video game giants, and the games and their music have always shared a deep connection,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Through these concerts, fans nationwide will be able to gather and show their love for the quarter century of action, adventure and excitement that The Legend of Zelda games have brought to their lives.”
What better way to celebrate 25 years of Zelda than with a 70 piece orchestra? If you answered anything less than having Link himself appear inside your living room and playing the songs himself, well, tip of the hat to you. For the rest of us out there living at least within our means of the real world, it is time to throw on that suit and enjoy a night in some orchestral insight.
