Hey, Zelda Eternity readers! If you’ve been around the internet recently, you’ve probably heard of Youtube a capella VGM sensation, Smooth McGroove. What has he pulled out from under his epic beard this time? Nothing short of an arrangement of the Lost Woods theme from A Link to the Past! Take a listen below!
Additionally, it seems that Master McGroove is pulling out all the Zelda stops today, holding a stream of the newest entry to the Zelda series, A Link Between Worlds. If you got the game today and want to play along with the man with the voice of a god (sorry Elias), jump on over to this link and give him a view. Be warned, however, given the unedited nature of this stream, it’s bound to be spoiler-tastic. To the spoiler-phobic, beware!
As always, have a great day, ZE fans! Weegee, out.
Just recently, on September 14, the Game Theorists Youtube channel posted a video in their series Digressing and Side Questing. In it the host analyzes the design choices of the original NES classic, particularly as they compare to those of A Link to the Past.
Be warned, as the video gets slightly adult.
What do you think of the host’s opinions? Do you think they’re well founded, or just based on nostalgia?
On Monday, September 9th, Youtube musician Smooth McGroove uploaded a video in which he performs a smooth acapella interpretation of the Dark World theme from A Link to the Past. McGroove has a long list of Zelda themes put to his unique style, including Midna’s Lament, and The Wind Waker’s Great Sea.
You can check out Smooth McGroove’s channel here, to enjoy more unique video game musical performances.
Youtube user WindMageMaster has put together a musical cover of the many memorable themes from the SNES classic, A Link to the Past. Since Nintendo recently announced that the next Zelda title will take place in the same world as A Link to the Past, now is the perfect time to take a listen. It’s time to, as the kids say, get hype, ladies and gentlemen!
And that’s it from me. Weegee, out!
If there was ever any doubt in your mind that the sax can’t make anything sound 10x sexier, let those blasphemous thoughts wash away with this remarkable video!

Watching this video makes me realize something… The SNES wasn’t home to many surprising plot twists, was it?

Hello, Zelda Eternity readers! Allow me to pose a purely rhetorical question to you. Do you enjoy the wonderful art to be found accompanying the many entries to the Zelda series? If you do, you’re in for a real treat. We here at Zelda Eternity will be putting together a (hopefully) weekly feature on the many, many wonderful works of official art often overlooked in the Zelda fansite community. Ironically, today, we’re beginning with an ending, celebrating one of my personal favorite pieces of art. Click “read more” for my thoughts.
These guys on YouTube have covered every single song from A Link To the Past in a 12 minute long medley! There’s a wide array of instruments being used, including el-guitar and violin.
Now that we’re past the MM month, it’s always good to see fan stuff on other Zelda games. For example these excellent pieces of Alttp art! It shows the bosses of A Link to the Past, re-created in beautiful drawings. It looks like people will never stop thinking about Link’s epic journeys and battles, which we can all be happy for. So, did these drawings make your day or are they simply “ok”? Do you have a favorite picture, or simply a favorite boss?
Remember that you can also send in mailbag questions to our Koh/ZE mailbag to get our opinions as well! It’s still fairly new, so it’s a good chance your question will be answered! If you want questions answered about ZE, you need to send it to me or SpaghettiWeegee on the forums, since we will happily answer it in the podcast!
