If you’re playing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, I hope you bought the special edition. And if you haven’t bought it yet, you absolutely should. Not only do you get a lovely Wii Remote Plusin Zelda gold for half of what a Wii Remote Plus would usually cost, but you get the phenomenal The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD.

The CD features fully orchestrated remixes and medleys of classic Zelda tunes. From the excellent Anniversary Medley to the fantastic Wind Waker Medley, most of the series iconic themes are covered. But in my opinion, the hidden gem of this album is the reorchestrated Gerudo Valley. They managed to take what was already considered a classic song from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and give it a fresh spin as an absolutely epic piece.

If you’ve already purchased the game’s standard edition or don’t plan on buying the game (for shame!), hopefully Nintendo will release it as a stand alone disc. Or you could acquire through *ahem* other means.
