The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild soundtrack is beautiful on the surface, but YouTuber Mark Brown digs a little deeper to see exactly what makes the sound design of the latest Zelda games such a success.
In the video above, Brown explains how underneath Breath of the Wild‘s visceral piano plinks and violin plucks is a very nuanced orchestration that echoes Zelda games of the past without completely lifting classic theme songs or tunes. The soundtrack helps explore the themes and tones of Breath of the Wild while staying true to the series with understated references and surprising callbacks.
