‘Tis the season to play… Breath of the Wild? Or maybe Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Look, whatever, it’s a Legend of Zelda holiday season and we’re all in.
A Seattle-based group called Materia Collective have gone and released an album called A Merry Hyrule Christmas, which you can take a listen to here. Featuring some beautiful orchestrations with a variety of instruments, you’ll be able to enjoy a number of favorites with the Zelda theme in mind. Just make sure you don’t bomb the fruitcake, though.
As you can see in the tweet below, the album was arranged and produced by Eric Buccholz of Hero of Time fame, and is “sure to put you in the holiday spirit.”

There are a number of services where you can listen to the album, including Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora, and you can also directly download it through the iTunes Store and Amazon Music. The band is asking $9.99 for the download, but it’s worth it if you feel like humming the sort of music that would put even grumpy ol’ Gannondorf in a good mood.
So if regular holiday music has you down or, like us, there’s only so much “All I Want For Christmas Is You” that you can take, put this record on and get really festive for the holidays.
Remember, it’s dangerous to go alone, so take this album.
You can take a listen to the tracks on YouTube as well, with a snippet included below.
