REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Nintendo is celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda video game series in style.

The Legend of Zelda has few peers in the pantheon of video game giants, and the games and their music have always shared a deep connection,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Through these concerts, fans nationwide will be able to gather and show their love for the quarter century of action, adventure and excitement that The Legend of Zelda games have brought to their lives.”

A 70-piece orchestra will be joined by a choir to perform new arrangements of a variety of songs from the series’ 25-year history. The concerts will be produced by Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc., the producers of PLAY! A Video Game Symphony, which has toured the world performing music from video games.

The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert Tour brings one of the video game industry’s most exciting and enduring franchises to the concert hall and presents what we feel is the definitive concert experience for the series,” said executive producer Jason Michael Paul. “It’s an event that fans and music aficionados won’t want to miss.”

Nintendo’s celebration of the 25th anniversary includes many elements. On June 19, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time3D game for the Nintendo 3DS system, while The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game for the Wii console is planned for this holiday season.
