Swedish musician Neon X Music recently dropped a fantastic and exciting remix of the classic Overworld theme from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The synth music video features an undulating image of a futuristic Hyrule that looks like something out of the Tron films; the image also includes the title “Hyrule Nightlife.”
Fans will appreciate the many loving riffs that hearken back to the SNES classic, while also finding themselves adrift in the what-if possibilities of a Hyrule from another era, a world of skyscrapers, nightclubs, and a new threat from Ganon. This remix is the third from Neon X Music featuring songs from Zelda games; the others remix “Church Theme” and “Dark World Theme.”
Neon X Music primarily focuses on remixing retro game titles in a similar synth style, with music from Street Fighter, Donkey Kong Country, Mega Man, Star Fox, Super Mario World, and many other classic titles.
