Tuesday evening Stephen Colbert presented The Legend of Zelda fans with a musical treasure. Performing for a captive studio audience, Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses played a beautiful medley infusing familiar themes from the long running series with new music composed for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes which launches Friday, October 23.
Inter cutting shots of performing orchestral members with footage from Nintendo’s newest Zelda title, along with previous iterations within the series, visually and audibly gave fans a taste of what to expect with the newest Zelda entry while acknowledging the series’ beloved history.
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is presently on world tour. Check out its full schedule here.
