The Legend of Zelda franchise is well known for its incredible music. With iconic tracks including 'Lost Woods' and 'Gerudo Valley' from Ocarina of Time alongside the beautiful, ambient music from Breath of the Wild, we imagine many composers would no doubt feel a tad overwhelmed at the prospect of adding to the franchise's astounding back catalogue.

One man who reckons he's up to the job, however, is Shoji Meguro, the esteemed sound director of Atlus's Persona series, who worked on the franchise until his departure in 2021. Speaking with Nintenderos, he praised Xenoblade Chronicles and Fire Emblem before clearly stating a desire to write music for The Legend of Zelda:

"Nintenderos: Since we are a page specialized in Nintendo, we want to ask you this: If the opportunity to compose the soundtrack of a Nintendo video game were presented, what franchise would you like it to be?

Shoji Meguro: It's a difficult question. If I were guided by my favorite world feeling, I would have to say Xenoblade Chronicles. But it's hard to put Fire Emblem aside... Although well, I would love to write songs for a Zelda game!"

Granted, the prospect of Meguro ever working on a franchise like The Legend of Zelda is extremely slim, at best, particularly since the creator currently has an active Kickstarter project on the go for a new project called 'Guns Undarkness', which has nailed its intiial funding target of £25,498 (converted from Japanese Yen) with a total of £81,257 at the time of writing.

Still, it's nice to know that if Nintendo ever finds itself at a loss with regards to music composition, it sounds like Shoji Meguro might be willing to lend a hand!
