For those unable to make it all the way over to Japan to see The Legend of Zelda: Concert 2018 live this month, fear not: the whole thing is set to be recorded for a special CD and blu-ray release next year.
You may remember that we actually reported on this concert series earlier this year; initial performances were held towards the end of last month, and the final show is set to take place in just over a week's time. This last performance, set to be held in Tokyo, will be live-streamed on YouTube (for a fee), but sadly it'll only be viewable by residents of Japan. If you're wanting to see and hear the action for yourself, this newly-announced release will be the only way to do it.
The album is set to be released in Japan on 6th March (importing options should hopefully become available nearer the time). There's a regular edition containing 2 CDs of the concert, and a Limited Edition which also throws in a blu-ray featuring live footage from the performance including the musicians and imagery shown on screen at the event. The two releases are set to be available for 3,000 and 5,500 yen respectively (approx. $26 / $49) before taxes.
We quite like the idea of sitting down with a blu-ray of a live Zelda performance; hopefully we'll receive more details about the product's release in the coming weeks. You can see more about the live performances themselves at the official website.
