The Japanese orchestra Ensemble GAP performed a complete presentation in concert format based on the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, making the entire show available via YouTube for audiences around the planet to watch. The title came to the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch in 2017 and became an instant classic – further raising the bar for the franchise within the gaming universe.
There are two full hours of music taken directly from the game, which will bring many memories to anyone who has played the last six years. It is worth noting that the group is not part of Nintendo and is not performing the presentation officially – they even define themselves as amateur musicians who are passionate about video games and come together to bring joy to the fans, but do not think that this makes the performance bad (in fact, quite the opposite). You can watch it in full below:

It is worth noting that the last song of the presentation of the Japanese orchestra is the sound of the first trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. With the new game coming exclusively on Nintendo Switch next week, the question remains: are they also gearing up to put on a performance based on Link’s next big adventure?
