A Link Between Worlds has a phenomenal soundtrack. From the remixed tracks of A Link to the Past to the brand new themes introduced in areas such as dungeons, the soundtrack of the game certainly stands out. However, the music of the game is not played by a live orchestra. Why? Wouldn’t a full, live orchestral score of A Link Between Worlds be, well, out of this world?

In a recent interview with Official Nintendo Magazine UK, A Link Between Worlds composer Ryo Nagamatsu gave the reason as to why the game didn’t utilize a live orchestra — it wouldn’t have worked well with the 3DS speakers.
