Mahito Yokota, the sole composer of the Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development Tokyo since 2004, has revealed that the development team behind the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword have decided to include orchestral music in the game. Yokata announced that Shigeru Miyamoto originally decided against using orchestral music for the soundtrack but suddenly had a change of heart. Who’s looking forward to the epic soundtrack that’s going to grace the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword?
“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.”
“Then, toward the end of summer break, they finally decided to put in orchestral music and I joined the development team.”
