Skyward Sword is often praised for its iconic, evocative music. The first soundtrack in the Zelda series to largely feature live orchestra, it imparted a sense of wonder and engagement that resembled a filmic score more than a traditional video game OST. Tracks such as “Ballad of the Goddess” and “Fi’s Theme” have become memorable favorites in the Zelda music lexicon. Earlier this year, Nintendo announced the release of a Japan-exclusive box set for the Skyward Sword original soundtrack to commemorate the release of Skyward…

Last month, the community debated about who the last playable DLC character would be for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. There were several differing opinions, but the general consensus was that the new character would be one of the game’s villains. That speculation has now been to rest. Nintendo UK recently released a short trailer for the game which showcases a snippet of the additional fighter’s gameplay….
