It’s dangerous to go alone. Take the mandolin, too
Time-travelling and dimension-hopping hero to video game characters, Ollie Longz, has apparently returned from his little jaunt to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past’s Dark World with a most interesting artifact. What was originally thought to be an innocuous piece of parchment stuck to the bottom of Link's sacred shoe at The Pyramid's gift shop display is, in fact, a written record of the music that can constantly and inexplicably be heard throughout the dimension.
In his guise as YouTube user Banjo Guy Ollie, Longz has managed to decipher Hyrulian musical notation, and when properly translated the arrangement utilises a variety of cool guitars and banjos. Mr. Longz assured the Nintendo Life news team that his rendition is as faithful as possible, but with a little added twang.
Think mountain music fits the Dark World mood? Are you already making Lindsey Stirling comparisons? Would you have added more cowbell? Let us know!
