Zelda: Twilight Princess re-orchestrated project revealed

9:00 AM on 02.03.2011 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Well over a year ago, a six year long project called the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time re-orchestrated project was finally completed. The long wait was well worth it as the entire album was just beautiful. 

The musical talents behind ZREO are back again with Twilight Symphony and as you can probably guess, this original and complete orchestral arrangement are based on the unreleased soundtrack to The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The new album is comprised of over 40 tracks and clocks in at around two and a half hours of Twilight Princess music. 

While we can only give you samples of the songs for now, ZREO did provide Destructoid with the full tracks to preview.

ZREO provided us with "Lake Hylia", "Midna's Lament", "Link vs. Stallord", "Princess Zelda's Theme" and "Hyrule Field". I gave each track a listen and for good measure, compared them to the original pieces. In each case, the ZREO version was better than the original version in my opinion. To the point that anyone but perhaps a die-hard Zelda fan could easily think this is the official soundtrack to the game. My favorite of the bunch is easily "Midna's Lament" with its beautiful piano work that could easily move someone to tears. The "Hyrule Field" track is also quite lovely and features some choir work that while brief, sent a shiver down my spine the first time I listened to it.

The upcoming album also features the talents of vocalist Aubrey Ashburn who has done work on soundtracks for games like Dragon Age and Devil May Cry 4. On top of that news, the "Overture" album opener in Twilight Symphony, based on the opening music from the game, will be featured in the PLAY! A Video Game Symphony concert series. I was given an early taste of this track and I cannot wait to hear what it sounds like when a 90 piece orchestra and choir perform it.

ZREO have given us some exclusive tracks for you all to listen to above and our good friends over at Original Sound Version also have some exclusive tracks of their own for you to check out as well. It's just a small sampling of what is going to be an epic album.

The team is still working on the album and one thing they're looking to do is record a live choir to accompany the music. You can help make this happen by donating to their Kickstarter where there's an additional, exclusive clip you can preview there, as well.

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.
