Very cool. Sounds good. Zelda music has always been interesting, and I'd like to hear the full Skyward Sword soundtrack at some point. Thanks for posting this.

So would I. It should hit each regions Club Nintendo's at some point, just like Galaxy's did.

If you buy the game early you'll get a CD with live recorded tracks from the Zelda 25th Symphony Concert's, those take place next month in LA and London.

Very nice! It's good that Zelda finally gets the orchestral soundtrack it deserves.

It's not 100% orchestrated, selected tracks are. It's good enough for me.

Yeah, the mix of non-orchestrated and orchestrated music should be interesting. The final boss theme HAS to be orchestrated, right?

All the big moments should be in and out of cut-scenes, but I guess there will be a few tracks that slip through - great midi tracks that you'd love to hear with a full orchestra.

Nothing wrong with a good mix of orchestral and synthesized music. Super Mario Galaxy pulled that off brilliantly. 

Also, listening to the track again, this is probably the best video game tune I've heard all year.

The next game on WiiU may have more because of the increased memory capacity, but I think they may keep it mixed for a while yet, a lot of money goes into the production of these orchestrated tracks already, and in a Zelda game of this size it would be quite an undertaking. If this Zelda does well commercially, I think we can expect to see even more resources put into the sound of the next game.

I can't wait to hear a little more.

That sounds really awesome. Every time I see something about this game it just makes me more exited.

Already loving the music of this game, can't wait to get my hands on the soundtrack.

Game of the year! Well, maybe not, but it seems like it's going to be pretty good.

Hmm, listening to this while watching the thumbnail for this is weirdly fitting...

European Wii owners have been playing Xenoblade Chronicles, the game US owners may get in 2012. There's also more to come with Pandora's Tower and Kirby Returns to Dreamland.

Damn it, Skyward Sword makes me want to get a Wii.

Sounds good, ofcourse it does.
Zelda never fails to impress me, the music is so impressive while its actually really normal fitting music.
 
Usually soundtracks have to bombast me before I even notice them, but in Zelda games I notice every little sound effect <3
