In his interview, Paul expanded on his collaboration with Nintendo, specifically with Eiji Aonuma and Koji Kondo. He explained how Nintendo maintains “absolute influence” over the concert series, with everything from the music to the video organized and approved by Aonuma, Kondo, and others at Nintendo.
Paul stated that his collaboration with Nintendo has always been to uphold and facilitate the Zelda team’s vision. This aim can be seen in the concert series’ new video segments, in which Aonuma, Kondo, and Shigeru Miyamoto share their experiences on making the series. Paul admitted that this emphasis on the series’ creators was a deliberate choice by the showrunners, as they were looking for ways to improve the show and make it more special for Zelda fans.
When asked if The Symphony of the Goddesses would continue after the current series, Paul stated that he had plans in anticipation of The Legend of Zelda‘s 30th anniversary. He explained that “elements of three” are certainly significant given the lore of the games (with the Triforce for example), so he has “big plans coming up” to celebrate Zelda‘s three-decade history.
The producer also shared that he would like to produce a “Nintendo all-star concert” if given the opportunity, which would feature music from The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Metroid, Star Fox, and Kirby, among others. He said that he has already presented the concept to Nintendo and remains hopeful for the opportunity to make it a reality. Plans are most likely in the earliest conception stages, but I know I’d be first in line if that show ever comes to be.
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses will continue its run throughout 2015. For a full schedule, you can visit their webite here.
