"The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses -- Master Quest" to tour the globe in 2016
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert series is back with an extended leg of world tour dates in North America and Europe, for the series’ third installment of multimedia shows, “Master Quest,” with additional dates being announced into the next year. This latest edition of The Legend of Zelda symphony will add brand-new music and visuals from the new The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. These scores and game play images from the new game will join the show’s classic repertoire from seasons past, maintaining the beloved experience fans have come to expect.
Fans can get a sneak-preview of the new content tonight on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, where an orchestra will perform the all-new The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes interlude arrangement from the symphony. Announced at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is an action-adventure game where three players team up– each as Link – to cooperatively make their way through inventive dungeons and battle bosses. Use the new Totem mechanic to stack three Links on top of each other to reach higher grounds and solve puzzles. The game launches on Oct. 23 for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
“We’re thrilled to continue to bring the ultimate Zelda music experience to the best fans in the world and introduce them to new music from The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes,” said Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc, the company producing the concert tour. “The connection that fans feel with The Legend of Zelda franchise is so strong, and we’re fortunate to be able to deliver a truly magnificent experience to them time and time again.”
