In a few days' time, the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House will ring again with the chords of The Legend of Zelda's memorable soundtracks for the first time in a decade.

Hero of Time is a one hour arrangement based on Koji Kondo's score to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Officially licensed, and recorded by the 64-player Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, Hero of Time promises to "breathe new life" into the classic Ocarina of Time score - on vinyl!

It turns out the re-release of Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS wasn't the biggest Legend of Zelda news this weekend because JAKKS Pacific has given Toyland an exclusive first look at the latest addition to its Big Figures Line: a 20-inch Link that's so detailed you can even see the texture of the fabric on his tunic. Who cares about Zelda or the Triforce when this is up for grabs?
