Here’s Why You Recognized The Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Sequel Trailer’s Eerie Music

Update: Award-winning composer and arranger Rozen has offered his thoughts on this comparison, explaining: “I know it sounds reminiscent, but it’s more of an interval similarity (similar melodic motion). Changing the mode (aeolian or others) would sound much different from this. There would have to be more notes in common. Good guess, though.”

Original Story: In this week’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed to the world that a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was in development.

And, while the cutscene that was shown has already hinted at the much darker tone to Link’s next adventure, the music that accompanied it was actually another reference to the series’ past.

The unsettling and eerie melody is the Game Over music from the original The Legend of Zelda game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, but now performed in a minor key to make it sound more haunting.

It may have just been creepy to those not digging to uncover the trailer’s secrets, but, for those that have been wondering, at least we can now place where it comes from.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
