Zelda 3DS uses orchestrated Link to the Past soundtrack

In one of the clearest demo videos we’ve seen today, German Nintendo fansite NiNTENDOMiNATiON has brought us an excellent look at the exclusive Zelda 3DS demo with a full thirteen minutes of footage. Not only does this new video show us a full dungeon’s worth of gameplay, but it also has a direct audio feed so we get to hear the music and other game sounds perfectly. The results sound beautiful. Jump inside to see the video!

As you can probably hear in the video, the music and sound effects are both very familiar. It seems that just as many of use suspected, this new game will also be featuring a fully re-orchestrated version of the music from A Link to the Past! Not only that, but the Rupee, Sword Beam, and floor-changing sound effects are also updated versions of the ones from the SNES classic.

Not sure you hear the similarity? Here’s a refresher; click here for the original Dungeon Theme and here for the original Boss Theme.

So how do you like the music in this new game? Are you happy to hear the blast-from-the-past that is A Link to the Past‘s music, or would you have preferred something more original? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to tell us any other interesting tidbits you may have picked up in this video!
