Our best soundtrack tournament continues with two new titles. As Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword duke it out in Friday’s poll, The Minish Cap and Oracle of Seasons step into the fray.
The Minish Cap Vs. Oracle of Seasons
The Minish Cap proved that some of the greatest achievements can come from the smallest places. The GBA title delivered a grand story, introduced a cast of memorable characters, took the series to places it had never gone to before, and did all that with a sense of heart we don’t normally encounter in Zelda. The game’s soundtrack no doubt helped The Minish Cap to achieve so much, as it masterfully blended old favorites with a batch of great original tracks. Songs like “Hyrule Town,” “Minish Village,” and “Ezlo’s Theme” are all wonderfully charming and seem ripped straight from a fairy tale. They certainly deserve a place among Zelda‘s best tunes.
Oracle of Seasons, one of The Minish Cap‘s successors, was able to fend off the cult-like support of The Adventure of Link and move on to Round 2 of our tournament. Many fans pointed out how well-rounded this GameBoy title’s soundtrack is, as it provides an entire adventure’s worth of memorable tracks. The game features an assortment of unique town themes, dungeon themes, and character themes, something its Round 1 competitor couldn’t boast about. Now that Seasons‘ OST finds itself facing Minish‘s equally diverse soundtrack, can it keep its momentum going? Well, with so many songs I can still hum along to, I’d say it definitely has shot.
So, it’s time to decide which game had the better soundtrack: The Minish Cap or Oracle of Seasons
