Looking forward to playing Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii this November? If all of our talk about the game’s music hasn’t gotten you excited enough, Nintendo has just announced that a limited edition of the game will be available on launch day for $69.99 that will include a gold Wii Remote as well as a special music disc titled The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary SYMPHONY – Orchestra Concert Special CD.

Just what’s on the disc? As it turns out, this is material recorded by a live orchestra that will be featured as a part of the 25th anniversary concerts being held in October. I guess that makes it somewhat of a pre-recording although it won’t be released until after the concerts take place in October.

I guess this is the second album that Nintendo announced at their E3 press conference this year, so we have our answer as to what that was all about. It’s a limited edition bonus as opposed to a separate stand-alone release that fans will have to purchase. I’m always happy to get a free bonus, but I’m still hoping for an all-out concert CD/DVD. Maybe we’ll see it in Japan in the future, but in the meantime, we can be happy we’re getting any music at all!
