Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild OST On The Way

The hills are alive with the sound of Zelda

Nintendo of Japan has announced an extensive official soundtrack for The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It coincides well with the critically acclaimed Wii U/Switch title approaching 12 months since its release.

2 editions have been confirmed: first print and regular editions. Both include the 211 tracks on 5 compact discs, but the first print edition is something special indeed.

The first print edition is a thing of Shiekah beauty

The stunning first print edition comes with a bonus ‘Field Music Collection’ soundtrack on a Legend of Zelda Play button. This is a truly unique release, not just because a Zelda soundtrack has never seen release on the Play Button format, but because the format was rendered obsolete in 2014. Still, it looks kinda cool.

Epic sounds in a pin

The regular edition is also not to be sniffed at. It comes in a smaller but no-less spectacular package, and both sets include the same 5 compact discs. Both sets will also include 2 exclusive tracks, unique to the Breath of the Wild presentation trailer from 2017.

Truly a thing of beauty for the eyes and ears

Previews for over 30 tracks are available to listen to over at Nippon Columbia listing page. Before you race over there, both editions are currently up for pre-order on the links provided below. Prices are 7,500 Yen (£50/$70 approx) and 5,000 Yen (£35/$47 approx) for the first print and regular editions respectively. Given the amount of quality music on offer, it’s not a bad price at all. Now excuse me, i have a soundtrack to order!
