Video: This Official Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses Performance is Just Too Good

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Why yes, Nintendo, we'd love a full album / DVD

We suspect that a good number of Nintendo Life community members know the Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses concert well, as it's been touring around the world delighting fans of the series. When you take the scores of iconic Zelda games and orchestrate them, magic undoubtedly happens.

The tour is currently working its way around North America, in some venues moving onto its "2nd season" of performances; we can only hope that continued success will see the tour continue into next year and once again return to Europe.

For those that haven't been to one of the concerts, or others that want to relive a snippet of the night, Nintendo UK has produced a fantastic video from the recent performance in London. You can see it below, and it shows a terrific performance of Dungeons of Hyrule.

We suggest enjoying this with some headphones, and we certainly hope that the future will bring even more concerts and, if we're lucky, a full official soundtrack and DVD release, or maybe even an eShop-exclusive video to buy. The more people that get to enjoy these concerts, the better.

Oh darn, my kindle fire hd can't play YouTube. That is really disappointing now, because I quite like Zelda music.... :(

Impressive! And there are still people out there saying that "videogame music is just blips and blops"...

@Shiryu: I know! I like video game music a lot (Especially Metroid Prime Trilogy) and I can't see why people hate it.

I drove three or four hours to one of these last summer with a friend from Charleston, WV to Pittsburgh, PA, and it was worth every minute. I am telling you, it was a fantastic show, and if you have been a fan of the Zelda series as a whole, it is definitely worth your time. I would pay for a DVD of the show even.

I had the chance to attend this event in Atlanta and it was an absolutely amazing experience. The sad thing is they ran out of all merchandise 15 minutes after starting, which is kind of pathetic, but aside from that, it was awesome. I hope they come back next year!

Teared up a bit. Want this on blu-ray or DVD, please. It's quite astonishing to have your little hobby that you loved dearly as little kid treated with such respect and care and to have beautiful subtle and powerful music made from the wonderful melodies that had to play through simplistic synthesized blips (which I also like).

A CD of this already exists. It came with the deluxe edition of Skyward Sword.

I went to the concert in Atlanta a few weeks ago, when they launched the Second Quest. It was phenomenal, and worth more than every penny of the ticket.

@kimaster That's only a sampling, though. A full-length release with all the songs the orchestra performs would be amazing. Live, in-studio, doesn't matter. The disc with Skyward Sword left me craving more.

Went to this exact concert and it was absolutely incredible. I know a DVD won't have the same experience as seeing it live but... TAKE MY RUPEES!!

I was impressed with both the Zelda show as well as the Final Fantasy show. Zelda only won in my opinion due to how close the series is to my heart.

Goose bumps and tears at minute mark 2:30...

The only song I know in that selection was the one from Melee. :P

Oops, and then I heard the boss music from Zelda 1. NM.
