Music from the classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is making the leap from the chip sounds of the Nintendo 64 to a new recording by a 64-piece orchestra, iam8bit announced today.
Hero of Time is a collaboration between iam8bit and Materia Collective. The two previously worked on an Undertale soundtrack.
Materia Collective is handling the digital distribution of the music, while iam8bit is handling the distribution of the music on record.
The recording is being pressed into a 180-gram heavyweight colored viny with a die cut Ocarina window, gold foil triforce stamping and gatefold vista artwork.
The music is being recorded next month by the 64-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra live at Studio 1 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The album’s music is arranged and composed by Eric Buchholz and the artwork was created by Ryan Brinkerhoff.
The record, which will sell for $40, is aiming for a worldwide ship date in the second quarter of 2017.
