iam8bit, a production company that creates music and merchandise based on retro video games and films, is planning to release a vinyl album with the soundtrack of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, recorded by a real 64-piece orchestra. This album will be entitled “The Hero of Time,” and it’ll launch on two 180-gram vinyl records. The record itself is stunning, with green and red rupee-colored discs and a Zelda-themed sleeve, decorated with several locations from Ocarina of Time, including Death Mountain and the Lost Woods.
The soundtrack was recorded by an unspecified orchestra at Studio 1 in Bratislava, Slovakia, and customers who buy the record will be given access to a digital copy of the album. The record is expected to launch sometime in Quarter 2 of 2017 and will cost $40.00.
