Skyward Sword Will Boast a Fully Orchestrated Soundtrack

It's finally happening, people. A Zelda game will actually feature a fully orchestrated soundtrack. Excuse me while I foolishly attempt to perform a celebratory dance.

OK, now that that's out of the way, let's look at the topic at hand. For years, the Zelda series has provided easily some of the most memorable themes in gaming. Whether it was in an overworld, within the confines of a dungeon, or in a town, Zelda games often deliver catchy songs that stay with you long after you've completed Link's quest.

But everything has always been very MIDI-based. And as awesome as the music sounds, fans of the series have been clamoring for an authentic, orchestrated soundtrack. Well, it's going to happen, and it's going to happen with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Talking to Joystiq, Nintendo confirmed that Link's upcoming adventure would proudly boast a fully orchestrated soundtrack. What a way to provide one last hurrah for the Wii! Now, I'll let you all be as you perform your very own celebratory dances. Hey! Put that away! It's not that kind of dance!
