iam8bit will release the orchestral tribute to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on limited edition vinyl in 2017!

If you’re a music and gamer nerd like myself…get excited because this release is for you. iam8bit & Materia Collective have announced the release of Hero of Time, an officially licensed, one-hour arrangement album based on Koji Kondo’s dynamic, epic and absolutely gorgeous score to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Freshly – and exclusively – recorded by the 64-player Slovak National Symphony Orchestra for this very album, Hero of Time breaths new life into classic Ocarina of Time score, previously only available from its Nintendo 64 sound chip origins.

The album is arranged and composed by Eric Buchholz and features album artwork by Ryan Brinkerhoff that includes a die-cut Ocarina window on the jacket’s front.

This album will be recorded LIVE in January 2017 at Studio 1 in Bratislava by the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, immediately thereafter mastered and prepared for vinyl, ensuring a ship date of Q2, 2017.

Hero of Time will be pressed on 2xLP 180g Green & Purple Rupee vinyl and will also include a digital soundtrack of the album.

You’ll be able to pre-order Hero of Time on December 9th at 10:00am PST here.
