And it ditched MIDI tunes for a live orchestra, too.

In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, music had a pretty big role. For instance, all it took to summon a rainstorm or change the time of day was playing a few notes on an the titular musical instrument. And now you can get in line to buy those iconic tracks and more on 180 gram vinyl. Hero of Time is scheduled to release second quarter of next year and will set you back $40 plus shipping. Rather than just pressing the MIDI score from the Nintendo 64 game to wax, however, a 64-piece orchestra performed the tunes. I see what you did there, iam8bit.

It's a bit odd that it took this long for someone to give the score the fancy treatment on vinyl, to be honest. But the art -- that bridge from the Lost Woods, though -- and overall design might make up for the wait. Want to hear it in concert? Then maybe see if the (unrelated) Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is playing a city near you.
