- Zelda Eternity
Hello, ZE users. There are a few things to mention today in the world of Zelda news. First off, an album of remixed Zelda II music has just been released by Dj CUTMAN and SPAMTRON called Bagu and the Riverman. I don’t typically like remixes of video game music I’ve come to identify as nostalgic, but these remixes are good enough to make an exception. You can listen to five tracks on the website, however, the album comes with two bonus tracks that you can only obtain if you buy the album in full for $10.00.

In other news, in an interview with Game Informer on the subject of voice acting in Zelda, Nintendo Executive Eiji Aonuma was stated to have said the following…
“I started working on the series not at the beginning but part-way through its history. I think because of that, early on I was more looking objectively at the series and how we could change small, individual elements within it, rather than looking at how the series should evolve. As time has passed – particularly in the last few years – I’ve started to think a lot more about how I can take the series and really make it my own Zelda and evolve it further. As Mr. Miyamoto has allowed me to take the reins on the Zelda series, ultimately that’s what I need to do. Perhaps some people will think it’s a little bit late for me to start thinking about that, but as time goes by, that’s becoming more of a theme in how I’m approaching the series.”
What does this mean for later Zelda titles? Do you think Mr. Aonuma intends for a radically different direction for the series, or will he stay closer to home? Would drastic changes ruin a series that’s been in place for so long, or would they help breathe new life into it? Discuss in the comments below!
