Over a decade has passed since The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was released and one fan thinks it’s high-time (or should that be tide?) to add a remix album to the celebrations. Announced via Zelda Informer, Album director Tom Swift has put together a tribute album named ‘On the Breath of the Wind’ to mark the occasion and is hoping for it to be released at the end of this year, presumably to tie-in with Nintendo’s Wind Waker HD release.
Swift issued the following statement on behalf of the announcement:
“Ten years ago today Nintendo released the ‘Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker’ in Europe, following its earlier release in America and Japan. Most famous for its bright, controversial, eye catching cell-shaded graphics it also boasted a bright, bold new direction for the series in terms of music and storytelling. To celebrate both these things I’m proud to announce ‘On the Breath of the Wind’, a musical tribute album featuring remixes of Wind Waker music.
“Alongside the music the album will also feature dramatic narrations retelling the story of the Wind Waker. The album is currently set to include the artists Argle, Amphibious, Chernabogue, Mark of Two, Pixelpanic, Pokémoneinstein, Skyrider X, Thomas Swift and Tuberz McGee, and will star Michael Ellender and Glen Delaney as the King of Red Lions and Ganondorf. Work is nearly finished on the album and we hope to release it within the next year. In the mean time enjoy this trailer released exclusively through Zelda Informer and follow @Breathofthewind for news and updates.”
