Nintendo’s Koji Kondo is responsible for a number of the most iconic themes from the history of videogames. As it turns out, you also have him to thank for the upcoming concert tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda.
We caught up with Bill Trinen from Nintendo’s product marketing group this weekend at Comic Con and were given more details about the concert tour that Nintendo announced just days ago that will be kicking off in Los Angeles this October.
Bill told us that Koji Kondo "Really wanted music to be a part of the 25th anniversary activity," and went about creating a unique concert in Japan to commemorate the occasion. The idea was then expanded to include single performances in both North America and Europe. Think of these three 25th anniversary concerts featuring music "Hand-picked by Koji Kondo and his team" as a separate entity from the full-blown concert tour that will kick off in 2012.
