Still widely revered even 14 years after its release, fans still live in hope that Nintendo will one day turn their attention to revisiting The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.

Whether it was the game’s dark themes, sombre demeanour or enchanting melodies that proved captivating, there have been numerous tributes to the lauded Nintendo 64 classics throughout the years.

Prolific composer Rozen has taken Koji Kondo’s “Oath to Order,” the music that accompanies the game’s climactic close in which Link must call upon four colossal guardians to prevent the Moon from colliding with the world, and masterfully reimagined it with his own soundscape.

We’re treated to the first part of his Majora’s Mask: Waiting for the Dawn, titled “Predicament of the Four,” in which he enlists the Audire Soundtrack Choir, Mason Lieberman on Cello, and Darren Kerwin providing spoken text. The second, “We Shall Greet the Morning… Together,” will follow in the near future.
