Zelda Williams has revealed that she was “absolutely flattered” to be invited to be a part of The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony concert in London this week, during an interview held prior to the performance with Official Nintendo Magazine.
“With things like the Symphony concert, I was just talking about this with a friend the other day who worked in the videogames industry almost from the beginning, I don’t think they knew where videogames would end up,” Zelda explains. “I don’t think that anyone could have guessed that a game would come along like The Legend of Zelda that would reach so many people, would have made it to a quarter of a century with so many new games that still keep people interested.”
“There’s a lot of Nintendo lovers, that the reason that the symphony exists is because those songs are so catchy. They had so much to do with the nostalgia of growing up with these games. I think it’s incredible, I think it’s amazing that there’s a concert of Kondo-san’s songs and this is just The Legend of Zelda too it’s like one gaming universe but it’s incredible how many people it reaches.”
She continues, “To be a part of it is mindblowing to me. It wasn’t part of the ad campaign, or any of that, to do this. They invited me simply because they know how much I enjoy being around things having to do with this game and the music as well. I was absolutely flattered, I’m so happy that I could be here. If it weren’t for Nintendo, I can’t think of another circumstance ever that I’d get to surprise Zelda similarly-thrilled-to-hear-Nintendo-music dorks. That just doesn’t happen!”
