The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has had a few years to send its melodies throughout the lands, but there are still plenty of people who haven't had a good chance to see them perform. If you'd like to hear some Zelda music on a grand scale, however, and have access to CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, you'll want to stay tuned.
The symphony will be the musical guest for the 13th October episode of Colbert's new show, and it looks like there will be highlights from the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes as well. Having the host get his hands on it would most likely be a joy. Oh, and Sarah Silverman and Elijah Wood will be on the show too, yada yada.
This isn't the first time games have gotten the spotlight recently on late night TV. The current generation of hosts, including Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'brien, have seemed to embraced them well as a topic of interest and laughs. Will you be staying up to catch the symphony?
@GuardianKing I know, right? I wonder where they got the idea to put a video game orchestra on The Late Night Show?
Reminds me of that time they had Hatsune Miku on The late show with David Letterman of all things. LETTERMAN!!
This is way cool!
Well I'll be in NYC for the show (zelda not colbert) so this could be pretty cool!
Weird that they didn't get booked on the "other" show, but I'll record it for sure.
Too bad there wasn't the big Zelda to show off.
But... this is advertising right, @rjejr ?
Colbert is an awesome host and a nerd at heart so I'm not surprised.
Definitely good advertising on Nintendo's part. Colbert has quite the following.
Colbert+Nintendo = good
That's because Jimmy Kimmel is too ignorant to realize they're on youtube because there are many, MANY people who enjoy watching them as well!
@ChronicMids "there she is... Hutsun-e miku..."
Can't stand phony arrogant stupid Colbert, but may watch it for Zelda. Good for Nintendo. My Zelda symphony experience took place in Nintendo World Store a few years ago with signed posters etc.
Jimmy Fallon used to do a whole week of video games every year, with Reggie on as a guest Friday. When he got promoted to the Tonight Show, it seems like a deal was made with Microsoft so that can't happen anymore. It's kinda depressing. I would rather see this on Fallon than on Colbert.
@aaronsullivan Yes, this is certainly good. One game I think really can make a difference, and if both Star Fox and Zelda were coming out this holiday - like thy were announced, not completely wishful thinking on my part - my entire world view on Wii U and NX would probably be much different. But neither of them are. And while Sony and Naughty Dog fills Uncharted 4's delay to March w/ the Uncharted Collection Nintneod gives Wii U AC:aF. I know they are also giving us XCX but I bet they market AC and the amiibo more. XCX doesn't have amiibo support last I heard so why bother?
The Zelda thing on Colbert may help 3DS sales though (no clue what that game is called)
OK, I've been arguing on here and FB for 2 straight hours now, I'm fried, need to eat breakfast and start my day, sorry for the horrible reply. I wouldn't last 5 minutes on Naked and Afraid.
@Captain_Gonru They're going to announce Elijah Wood as Link in a live action Zelda movie. If Wood can't play him nobody can. I don't think Silverman will be Zelda though.
Colbert had some programmer on last week who was talking about his game (which I've already forgotten the name to). Looked really cool though. Glad to see videogames getting more mainstream spotlight on his Late Show.
Dang, I'm loving Colbert! He's got such great and varied taste in guests.
@ALinkttPresent, Why Fallon doesn't do the video game week any more is because the Tonight Show is recorded in New York.
Back when he did the Late Show, it was recorded in Los Angeles, and thus he could have the Nintendo, Sony, & Xbox guys come on easily around E3, since they were all in town.
@RR529 First of all, Fallon's previous show was called Late Night, not Late Show. Second of all, his Tonight Show is filmed in the EXACT SAME ROOM in Studio 6-B in New York that his Late Night show was filmed.
