Hero of Time

One of the most odd, yet satisfying, things to emerge from the 25th Anniversary of the Legend of Zelda was the Symphony of the Goddesses. This traveling orchestra took fans on a sonic journey through all of Link's past adventures, with many classic soundtracks getting a live, orchestrated reproduction. It seems that the symphony inspired some fans, as it has just been announced that an orchestrated fan rendition of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is due out next year.

Iam8bit and Materia Collective will be producing an album called Hero of Time, which will be a two-disc vinyl release. Featuring arrangements by the 64-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, this album will certainly deliver some serious skull candy. The fancy physical edition featuring art by Ryan Brinkhoff will launch sometime in Q2 2017, while the digital edition will be available to preorder customers in Q1, for $40 (roughly £32). A synthesized mockup demo can be heard here, and preorders can be placed here.
