Koji Kondo is one of the most notable individuals in video game music production, especially for the pieces he has composed for the Legend of Zelda franchise. He proposed an interesting idea recently in an interview with GoNintendo involving his work in the Zelda franchise. He expressed that he would want to remix the music in the franchise in a new fashion.

Kondo doesn’t wish to just revisit a single game from the franchise, but the series as a whole. He says he would much rather hand-pick specific songs that are his favorites rather than the set playlist a single game can offer. He envisions sitting down at a piano accompanied by two other musicians on a drum set and a bass guitar, and playing
Zelda pieces in the style of jazz. It is also notable that it was recently unveiled that Kondo is not actively working on the soundtrack for Zelda U. This could leave more time for Kondo to take up an opportunity to create a project like this.

Would you be interested in an album of jazz styled Zelda song, especially if it is by the series’ long-running composer and highly talented piano player? Perhaps a “smoky-bar” rendition of “The Song of Storms” or “Windfall Island” clashing with Chicago Swing is in our future. Let us know in the comments below.

Our Verdict

Alex Hawkins
Alan Wake changed my life forever. I'm not afraid to admit my undying love for Animal Crossing. I plan to devote my life to writing and art. I have been playing video games since about the age of three and they have stayed my greatest passion. I began writing in high school through poetry and became interested in writing as a career going into college. I hope you enjoy reading what I post and to keep up with me follow me on Twitter or Instagram @artisticishalex. Peace.
