Materia Collective is Kickstarting a live recording of a musical retelling of The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

And yes, there’s a vinyl option!

The project is called Hero of Time and is “a musical retelling of the story of Ocarina of Time, including key moments that occur before the game’s beginning and during Link’s concealment for seven years”. It will be an hour-long recording of new musical arrangements recorded live by a 64-person orchestra (the orchestra might grow even larger depending how much backing they can get).

The vinyl option is at the $100 tier and will also come with a digital download of the recording, a CD, and a signed postcard. While the price might seem steep to some, keep in mind that this Kickstarter is also for making this recording happen in the first place.

They do note in the Kickstarter that they’re planning a pre-sale for non-backers if the funding is succesful, so there might be an extra chance to get a vinyl copy then.

The Kickstarter opened today, September 30, and runs until October 31, 2016. If it is succesfully funded rewards are scheduled to go out in March 2017.

If it sounds like something for you, then you can check out the Kickstarter here.
