During The Game Awards on Friday night, Zelda series composer Koji Kondo and alternative rock band Imagine Dragons collaborated on stage to pay tribute to the Zelda franchise. The performance included renditions of the “Fairy Fountain Theme”, the “Song of Healing”, and the classic Zelda overworld theme. Imagine Dragons finished the show off with a performance of their smash hit “It’s Time.”
The performance was led by Koji Kondo on the piano with the members of Imagine Dragons rocking out on the guitar and violin. Accompanying their act was artwork from Majora’s Mask, which was projected in the background.
As if the footage shown prior to this performance wasn’t enough, seeing Koji Kondo play one of my favorite songs from the series, the “Song of Healing”, has only made me that much more excited for what lies ahead.
