Zelda Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Feeling the need for some culture in your life? Maybe you should consider the symphony.

The Zelda symphony, that is!

Nintendo has put together quite the show to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the popular game series. A full-orchestra concert series will go on a nationwide tour to delight fans with memorable songs penned by Koji Kondo and others.

The tour kicked off on October 21 in Los Angeles and is scheduled to make stops throughout the U.S. and London.

At the inaugural show, Koji Kondo made a surprise appearance. Playing some lesser-known Zelda tunes at the piano, the exuberant crowd was awed by this tribute to the beloved Link.

While symphonic tributes for video games and movies are not too uncommon, the orchestra’s tribute to Zelda is rather fitting. After all, what other video game shares the same deep connection with music than Zelda?
