Music Update - Link's Awakening Orchestral Arrangement

In case you missed it, we held a special event last night featuring Jeremiah Sun's arrangement album dedicated to Link's Awakening. He has kindly granted us permission to add all of the tracks to our library! We opted to omit some of the shorter tracks for aesthetic purposes, but if you'd like to own the complete collection of tracks, you can download the album via Loudr. Those of you who are more interested in a smaller sampling of some of the album's highlights can opt to download the abridged version of the album here.

Please enjoy this wonderful new addition to the Radio Hyrule library! Special thanks to Jeremiah for helping us put together a wonderful event last night.

A Night of Link's Awakening Music

This Thursday, May 14th, we will be hosting a LIVE listening event to premiere the Link's Awakening Orchestral Arrangement album, created by Jeremiah Sun (aka The Second Narrator). We will be airing the complete album in its entirety, along with arranger commentary! Jeremiah will be telling us about his processes and inspirations as we're guided through the album and reminiscing about one of the greatest handheld titles to date.

The event will be kicking off on Thursday at 6pm US Pacific, and should be wrapping up at around 10pm. As usual, we will be partying in the chatroom and continuing the discussion all throughout the event. Be sure to stop by!

Android Progress

April is now behind us, along with our hopes of releasing our Android application before May, but the wait is still almost over. The delays are due to complications with the submission and review process, but those have been taken care of and we are now ready to do one last beta test phase before releasing the final app.

Everyone who has submitted a donation or has bought request tokens from Radio Hyrule will receive an invitation to participate in the beta test and be the first to use the app. It will be publicly available as soon as we can determine the app to be stable. Thanks for your patience!


Music Update - The CloudRunner

The CloudRunner has completed his "A Terrible Fate" trilogy album of Majora's Mask music with the release of the final installation, 24 Hours Remain. If you haven't checked out the first two parts of the album, 72 Hours Remain and 48 Hours Remain, you should give them a listen! While you're at it, we also have an interview with The CloudRunner about his albums you can read through. Enjoy!

From NinFan237:

I know this might be a stretch, but is it possible to support the 3DS's internet browser for Radio Hyrule?


To our knowledge, the 3DS's browser doesn't support audio streaming in any format, though we will continue looking into the possibility. We'd love to add more support for portable platforms.



There will NOT be an episode of Hyrule Academy tonight. Take a break from class this week and join us again next week when we'll be discussing Goron culture!

Radio Hyrule: LIVE from Endgame in Tempe, Arizona

We're hosting our very own live event next month down in Tempe, Arizona at Endgame gaming bar! The night will be filled with fun Hyrulean activities, food, beverages, and fans. Here's a quick rundown of what's going on:

Triforce Puzzle Challenge - Do you have what it takes to solve our first-ever puzzle challenge? Not the jigsaw kind of puzzle; you'll need your green thinking hats for this one. Teams of 2-6 people will seek to be the first to solve a series of Zelda-themed puzzles using their wits, logic, and knowledge of the Zelda lore. Puzzle Mastermind and Feature Editor at Zelda Universe, David "TheMissingLink" Johnson, has designed some excellent challenges for you.

Hyrule Pub Quiz - Team up with your friends, or fly solo; this 20-question quiz will test the full scope of your Zelda knowledge from NES to 3DS. Players will write down their answers to the multiple answer questions announced by the quizmaster.

Guest DJ: Flexstyle - We're capping off the night with musician, OC ReMix judge, and one of the best DJs in video game music, Flexstyle. We'll be rockin' the tunes until the bar closes, so come hang out, grab a drink, play some games, and make some friends.

Attendance details can be found on Radio Hyrule Night on Facebook

Music Update - Andrew & Jillian Aversa

Our newest library additions feature the talents of two VGM community veterans, Andrew (aka zircon) and Jillian Aversa. After meeting each other on OC ReMix and later getting married, the couple has been collaborating on music videos featuring their creative talents. You can check out both videos posted below.

The first of today's two tracks is a spiritual successor to another track we've had in our library for years, Prayer. The new track, Generations, has some really nice updated flavors you'll definitely enjoy if you were a fan of the original version. The other track, Lullaby of the Sky, was released with the Video Games Live Level 4 album, and will also be performed live with the concert tour. Enjoy!

From Cayden:

I was wondering, do you have to get permission for certain songs, and for others, do you just get them from online places, like Youtube, or a music site?


We seek out Zelda music from all corners of the internet! Most musicians tend to post their music on popular content sharing sites like YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, Newgrounds, etc., but much of our collection was pulled from Zelda community forums no longer in existence. The result is a library with a blend of tracks we've preserved, and the most popular tracks you'll find on social content sharing sites.




MC Gamer will be back tonight with another episode of Hyrule Academy, live at 10pm US Eastern! Have a great weekend.

"We have chosen to guard the people while we sleep." — The Four Giants


Keeping with the Majora's Mask streak as of late, we have even more new music this week, and a quick update on the Android app development.


Android Progress

We're not too far away from the app's release now. We can now narrow our release window down to April 2015, as opposed to the prior window of "Spring 2015." The app is now in its beta testing phase, which means it won't be long before it's ready for public deployment, (provided there aren't any particularly nasty bugs to squash!). It might be sooner, or it might be later. All we can say for now is that we're aiming to stream Zelda music on your Android devices by the end of the month. Thanks for waiting!


Music Update - The CloudRunner

Back in February, we featured artist The CloudRunner and his tribute to Majora's Mask album, A Terrible Fate: 72 Hours Remain. Today, we're adding the second installment in The CloudRunner's A Terrible Fate trilogy, A Terrible Fate: 48 Hours Remain. Be sure to go check out our interview with The CloudRunner if you haven't heard it already. You'll get some insight into what inspires him, and how he creates his music. Enjoy!

From Neos:

Just wondering if there's a place on the site where I can catch up on your live broadcasts. I can't always catch it when it streams live, so it would be very convenient if I could watch/listen at a later date.


Hi, Neos! We have all of the shows from our Hyrule Academy series available for download right here. The other live broadcast that can be heard weekly on Radio Hyrule is The Windmill Hut, hosted by the team at The Spinning Stream: Nintendo Music Radio. Those shows can be downloaded from their stream archive, found here.





Thanks again for another great week! Tonight's episode of Hyrule Academy was all about Groose! We'll post the show's recording once it's available for download.
