“Merry Hyrule Christmas is the first album to combine The Legend of Zelda franchise music with classic holiday tunes from different genres,” says producer Eric Buchholtz. “We have Zelda music with a Christmas twist and Christmas music with a Zelda twist!
“My goal was to create an album of video game music that blends seamlessly with classic holiday tunes. The idea was that people could trick their parents, grandparents and family into listening to video game music. I love it. !”
