Watch The Legend Of Zelda Orchestral Concert For Free On Your Couch


Nintendo is offering up its best Navi impersonation by asking you to “hey, listen” to a pre-recorded orchestral concert of classic The Legend of Zelda tunes. The performance happened last month in Tokyo, but now is available to everyone to watch on YouTube–and seen below.

Originally, this Legend of Zelda concert was supposed to take place at Nintendo Live 2024 Tokyo, but the company had to cancel the event over safety fears, per VGC. As such, the performance was pre-recorded and shared online. The video clocks in at almost 30 minutes and features songs from the original NES game, Ocarina of Time, Breath of the Wild, and more.

Nintendo Live 2023 took place in Seattle last September after it originally debuted in Japan the previous year. In addition, Nintendo has held numerous live performances of The Legend of Zelda music over the past decade. For instance, there have been Zelda symphony tours as well as an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert way back in 2015.

The latest entry in the long-running series is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which just topped 20 million copies sold. The Nintendo Switch exclusive launched in May 2023 and became the fastest-selling game in franchise history.
