Ryo Nagamatsu pens folksy score for Tri Force Heroes
Ryo Nagamatsu single-handedly created the best Zelda soundtrack in years with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Unsurprisingly, he was asked back to serve as the sound lead and sole composer for the newly-released The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. He was assisted by sound designer and programmer Masato Mizuta.
The majority of the soundtrack for Tri Force Heroes adopts a folksy tone. Nagamatsu recorded the majority of the soundtrack with live musicians, including a prominently-featured violinist and accordionist, giving it a very distinctive sound in relation to the rest of the Zelda series. One of their recordings is featured in the video above.
It has yet to be announced if Nintendo will release a soundtrack album for Tri Force Heroes.
