Back in December, it was announced that, due to persistent threats to staff and spectators alike, the 2024 Nintendo Live event to have been held in Tokyo, Japan had been cancelled. While Nintendo confirmed that the tournaments scheduled for the event would be postponed, the fate of the scheduled Legend of Zelda live orchestral concert remained uncertain… that is until just a little over two weeks ago, when Nintendo revealed that we would still be getting the performance, but in a different way.
Today saw the release of a special pre-recorded version of Nintendo Live 2024’s “The Legend of Zelda Orchestra Concert” on Nintendo’s official YouTube channels. Nearly 30 minutes in length, the concert features music from such titles in the franchise as Breath of the Wild, Tears of the Kingdom, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, and more. While a lot of people like myself would’ve loved to experience this concert in person, it was still nice for the Big N to offer a lot of what Zelda fans were anticipating back in January.
What did you think of “The Legend of Zelda Orchestra Concert?” What was your favorite moment? Is there any arrangement from the series that you would’ve loved to see this orchestra play? Let us know in the comments below!
