Winter is here, and with many areas across the United States seeing snow, it is only fitting that this week’s Music Monday focuses on Snowpeak! Introduced in Twilight Princess, Snowpeak is an area which Link must traverse in order to reach Snowpeak Ruins and obtain one of the fragments of the Mirror of Twilight. It is not an easy journey, as Snowpeak is filled with blizzard-like conditions and ravaged with monsters. The music that plays at Snowpeak is a beautiful arrangement of the Hyrule Field theme, only slowed down. Filled with ambience and a light choir in the background, this piece is both reflective and somewhat tragic, yet at the same time beautiful.

It causes me to reflect on the melancholy of winter and the shape of things to come, which is why “Snowpeak – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” is today’s choice for Music Monday.

    This dungeon always intrigued me (in a good way). I can’t say it was one of the most memorable aspects of Twilight Princess but it certainly felt like it belonged in a different game….perhaps Dark Souls with a lighter tone. At any rate Aonuma and his team did this area perfectly, I can’t think of a better dungeon in that game (off the top of my head).

    I do wonder how it’d look with the art-style from Skyward Sword or even Zelda U…..

      Its a fun dungeon, for sure!!:) Very different, I feel it fits Perfectly as a variation and a creative departure! Same can be said about the snowboarding!:) Its one of the few dungons in TP that feels challanging, of course, having potions will remove that challange(enemy wise) but not using potions will make is slightly possible to die in that dungeon, a good change from most of the dungeons in TP and Zelda in general.

    I love the music from Twilight Princess… and the look… and the game, too.

    Epic music for an epic game.
