The time has come! After two months and eighteen intense match-ups, our best soundtrack tournament has reached its climax. Twenty OST’s entered this tournament in search of fame and glory, hoping to be named the best Zelda soundtrack of all time. Some fell swiftly, and others fought triumphantly until their bitter defeat. But in the end, only two games survived the grueling trials of the tournament bracket and earned a spot in the Finals.
Ocarina of Time — the Koji Kondo classic, the champion of nostalgia — in one corner. Twilight Princess — the emotional epic, the symphonic behemoth — in the other. Which Zelda soundtrack will stand supreme as the best of the best?
You can cut the electricity with a knife! So let’s get this battle started!
Ocarina of Time Vs. Twilight Princess
Both competitors encountered stiff competition in our opening rounds. Ocarina of Time, for example, took on musical heavyweights both old and new. After surviving a grueling match with fan favorite Skyward Sword, this Nintendo 64 classic asserted dominance against both A Link Between Worlds and A Link to the Past. All of these games boasted timeless tunes and long-lasting melodies, but Ocarina‘s foothold in the hearts of all fans and its deserved place in popular culture helped it to achieve steady victories against all challengers.
Twilight Princess, despite its unwavering popularity, had no special advantage in the tournament thus far. Taking part in some the bracket’s biggest match-ups, this GameCube / Wii masterpiece tore the house down in every single round. We saw more votes cast in Twilight‘s fights than in any other; and considering its competition — The Wind Waker, Majora’s Mask, Breath of the Wild — it makes sense why. Twilight Princess fought through some of the harshest conditions in this tournament and has rightfully earned its spot in the finals.
So, it’s time to decide the absolute best soundtrack in the Zelda series: Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess
