Hey, listen! The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Concert Album is Coming!

The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Concert
Genre: Soundtrack | Release date: Feb 2017

Nintendo has held Zelda concerts in Japan and around the world before, that’s nothing new, but 2016’s 30th anniversary was something special. This important jubilee was celebrated by holding a series of 5 philharmonic concerts in the cities of Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya, and for the first time ever, we get an official recording of the event: "The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Concert"!  
Conducted by Takemoto Taizo and performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, the album features a live performance that was recorded at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Theater on October 16th, 2016. It will come in two different versions: a first-print limited deluxe edition which will contain the 2 CDs of the recording, an extra DVD (Region 2) featuring the live event, a set of badges and a CD stand, all packed in a precious luxury box. The regular edition will include the 2 CDs of the full opera concert but without any of the extras.
