The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword to feature orchestral soundtrack

The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword is due to follow the footsteps of the Super Mario Galaxy titles, as it is set to feature a soundtrack recorded by a full-orchestra.

Although Mahito Yokota reveals that Shigeru Miyamoto didn’t initially feel that it was necessary for the next instalment within The Legend of Zelda series to feature an orchestral soundtrack.

“At the E3 last year, when we were going to exhibit The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the first time, we talked about using orchestral music. But [Shigeru] Miyamoto-san said it wasn’t necessary,” said Yokota. “Then, toward the end of summer break, they finally decided to put in orchestral music and I joined the development team.”

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D is also due to include an orchestral version of one track, but Yokota wouldn’t reveal what it was.
