While Zelda news was unfortunately slim at PAX East this year, there were a few bright spots for fans of the franchise. From a speedrun of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening by Game’s Done Quick to a panel talk on the Zelda timeline, there was just enough to keep fans interested while at the convention.
One personal highlight was my stop at the Songbird Ocarina booth. The owner of the company has been making ocarinas for over 30 years and the products are clearly built with love; all the products are handmade in the USA. The four-hole ocarina (picture in the gallery below and known as the “sweet potato”) was actually featured in a 1998 issue of Nintendo Power magazine when The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time released. Songbird Ocarina also sells a Zelda songbook!
It should be noted that the prices in the pictures are specific to the PAX East convention. On Songbird Ocarina’s website, the Zelda songbook sells for $15.00 (USD), and the Ocarina of Time Kokiri Edition sells for $30.00 (USD) To check out The Legend of Zelda collection at Songbird Ocarina, click here.
