The Legend of Zelda franchise is home to some timeless pieces of music. Personally, I always have tunes from either A Link to the Past or Ocarina of Time playing in my head. Speaking of the latter game, a vinyl of compositions from the title is being reissued. Dubbed ‘Hero of Time,’ the record is an hour-long dive into auditory bliss.
‘Hero of Time?’ I see what you did there!
If you recall the year 2016, iam8bit originally sold ‘Hero of Time.’ Recorded by the 64-player (hah!) Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, the album was arranged by Eric Buchholz, who worked on the live show: The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses.
Sadly, the print sold out pretty quickly. Thankfully, after all these years, the corporation Zavvi is stepping up to reissue the release. You can pre-order now for £39.99 (around $50). The vinyl is expected to launch on October 30.
