Over the weekend Nintendo released two special videos to celebrate the music across two very special video game franchises. The company hosted The Legend of Zelda Orchestra Concert and Splatoon Concert in Tokyo as part of the Nintendo Live 2024 festival. The two videos are now available to watch online.
Both videos celebrate the music behind their respective games. The Legend of Zelda, for example, kicks off with the Tears of the Kingdom Main Theme (goosebumps) and covers the most iconic music from the series’ most popular games.
You can listen to Zelda’s Lullaby which appeared in the earlier The Legend of Zelda games. It was especially made famous when it debuted back in A Link to The Past. It then became a series sensation in Ocarina of Time when players could perform the music tune themselves.
The concert ends with likely the most heartwarming song on the list – The Legend of Zelda Main Theme. However, the difference during the concert is that this version includes a mix of various renditions made for the series across the games.
As for Splatoon, this concert is a little different. Instead of the orchestra, it is played by a live band. There’s even some vocals. Some of the concert portions also include on-screen cameos by Splatoon characters who sing and dance to the music being played.
The concern closes with Anarchy Rainbow, one of the most popular songs in the Splatoon series. It debuted in Splatoon 3 and represents everything we love from the series. Especially its deeply rooted Japanese themes.
