Nintendo has just released some fun, free goodies in honour of the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda. Head here to check out some awesome downloadable wallpapers, as well as interactive features, such as The Legend of Zelda Flipnote Contest. I especially enjoyed the fantastic retrospective on the franchise’s history, complete with visual renderings of Link as he appeared in each of the games. What better way to wind down a hectic Monday afternoon than to reminisce about the extraordinary successes of one of Nintendo’s most endearing franchises?

In related news, Nintendo composer Mahito Yokota just announced two of the songs which will be featured in The Legend of Zelda Anniversary Symphony Tour: the theme from Gerudo Valley, as well as a medley of boss battle music. The tour makes its highly anticipated debut in October, and I’m sure we will be treated to more sneak peaks of the concert line-up in the weeks to come.

In the meantime, enjoy this awesome version of Gerudo Valley, compliments of Zelda Reorchestrated!
