I don't really get it: Even though we have these pretty creative and amazing people on Dtoid it appears that video game music has a too less value in this community. At least that's my opinion...
Last autumn a special concert was hold in Cologne, Germany. Symphonic Fantasies - music from Square Enix
was announced to become unique and the greatest concert ever hold in Europe. You may remember Dale North reporting about it in January 2009
. After the official website went online in July 2009 and more details were announced even the last skeptics became well excited when it was said that Yoko Shimomura, Hiroki Kikuta, Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu would attend as special quests.
Almost five month are gone to the land and nobody has written a proper review on the Symphonic Fantasies concert yet - at least not on Destructoid. But now it's already too late since the next concert is about to take place on September 23, 2010 and we all need to focus on speculateing about the possible topics, playlist and of cause specials guests now. Less information are known about Symphonic Legends
yet, but the title and official website allows some speculation. Some people guess the topic to be related to Nintendo
but nobody knows for sure. But if you have a look at the presentation of the teaser website - colors and typo - you'd think the topic to be something like RPG related, maybe timed Middle Ages. If The Legend of Zelda
doesn't cross your mind now you better stand up, take your consoles and throw them away after shouting "I'm unworthy playing videogames and I'll never touch a Nintendo system again
". Beside the matter of design and title Legend of Zelda is simpy a series that always run pretty well in Europe since the very beginning especially in Germany.
The teaser website for Symphonic Legends
has been released in December letting us know that almost 80% of the tickets are already sold. If you want to try your luck you can still purchase your ticket here
and hope you'll spend your money for something worth seeing. (It's not like I'm posting this because I got my tickets already and you won't get some anymore. Poor you! :D)
VGMConcerts has announced that more information will be available in February 2010. But since February has already started yesterday let's just try to fire our imagination before we know for sure.
