Nintendo has been on a roll lately! Last month we celebrated all things Mario in the wake of the release of the Super Mario Bros Movie, and this month sees the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on the Switch. Patreon Patron Mike Stark, longtime Zelda fan and member of the Norwalk Gamer Symphony Orchestra, joins us in-studio this month to chat about the Zelda series and its music. We cover a broad range of topics, play some great tunes, and round the show out by breaking down our top 3 Zelda games!
