Nintendo Announces The Legend of Zelda concerts – my song wishlist

So Nintendo announced at E3 that they are going to do a concert tour for The Legend of Zelda. I imagine it’s going to be very similar to what Square-Enix is currently doing with Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy 

It’s still quite early but I was so excited to hear the news that I wanted to create a song wishlist  of songs from the series that would like to hear performed live.

  • Zelda’s Lullaby
  • Fairy Fountain
  • Ocarina Medley
  • Dungeon theme (Famicom)
  • Hyrule Castle (Super Famicom)
  • Light World Dungeon theme (A Link to the Past)
  • Songs they should hold for Intermissions 
  • Legend of Zelda title theme
  • Overworld Themes
Hopefully this comes to the USA soon. Really glad that these concert tours are coming. Video Games Live, Play!, Distant worlds and now this.  I can just imagine seeing Zelda cosplayers sitting in the audience, at least here in the USA.

Nintendo Wii

I’ve had a Nintendo Wii for a few months now and I’ve got to say that it’s a decent gaming device. It’s not for the High-Def enthusiast since it can only output at 480 i/p (4:3 and Wide)   I have it hooked up to a 32″ HDTV and the unit gets most of its workout from Guitar Hero & RockBand at the moment.  I used to stick the sensor bar on top of the TV but the adhesive as worn out. The battery level indicator works well enough to warn me when to change batteries. It’s more fun as a party device (Wii Sports and the previously mentioned Guitar Hero & RockBand) are a few games on system that I would like to add to my collection eventually…

The Wii is also a good system for those who are fans of the older gaming eras such as the “16-bit” era of video games. This is all thanks to the Virtual Console. You’ll want to  pickup a Wii Classic Controller Pro since the button layout on the standard Wii remote is not all that great for the 16-bit and more recent era games.

The games I recommend from the Super NES are:

The Games I recommend from the Sega Genesis are:

Virtual Console also has NES, Turbo Grafix, Sega Master System, N64 titles available for download.  Everything still works fine even after all these months of regular use.
