It’s hard to believe that The Legend of Zelda series is only a year away from being three decades old, but one fan is getting a jump on the anniversary with the release of the electronica arrangement album, Hyrule: Melodia et Concordia.
The franchise began with the release of the first game on February 21st, 1986 to the Famicom Disk System and whose music has been echoing within the memories of game enthusiasts ever since. Hailing from Portugal, album creator and arranger Shiryu says this project has been a long time coming.
“This is my third collaboration with Meus Jogos DS and one that is way overdue because I love the music of Zelda and I often think how to best pay homage to it’s iconic themes. I hope you enjoy the finished product and that like me when making this tribute album, these bring you some really awesome memories. Thank you, Nintendo. Enjoy!“

The album, which focuses on electronic melodies and ambient cues, has been released to Bandcamp for four Euros (approx. $4.50 American dollars) for 15 tracks. A nice tribute to one of the most iconic franchising in gaming history.
