Collection Spotlight: Hylian Musicians

Tyler TagApril 18th, 2014 by Tyler Tag

2This week’s Collection Spotlight will be very unique in its own way. So much so that it will start off with the spotlighter’s own introduction. Enjoy!

Hi, my name is Izzi. I am 16, and I love music, video games, and reading. Zelda didn’t play much of a role in my life as a child. When I was four, my next door neighbor’s brother had a Nintendo 64, and Majora’s Mask. That was my first Zelda game, and it remains my favorite in the franchise, and one of my favorite games of all time. I don’t remember much about it as a kid, and I kind of forgot about Zelda until Twilight Princess came out. When we got our Wii, my dad bought me Twilight Princess, and I fell in love with Zelda all over again. To hear more stories like this and even see a Zelda-themed high school band performance, hit the jump!
