Zelda and Splatoon Concerts Will Be Streaming on YouTube in February

Here's an early Valentine's Day present for you: The Legend of Zelda and Splatoon concerts will be streaming on YouTube next month.


Nintendo of America made the announcement on Twitter/X on Wednesday, both on its own page and that of Splatoon's North American branch.

after it received persistent threats against its staff, attendees, and spectators because it couldn't ensure their safety if the event went on.

Nintendo also postponed the Splatoon Koshien 2023 National Finals and Splatoon 3 World Championship 2024 to indeterminable dates along with the Mario Kart 8 esports competitions.

The Zelda orchestra concert was previously held at the Nintendo Live 2023 event in Seattle, Washington back in September along with the Super Mario Super Big Band concert.

The Zelda and Splatoon concerts are in good company with other symphony performances being officially taped for YouTube. For example, the

was recorded during Sonic the Hedgehog's 30th anniversary in 2021. It gained critical acclaim from fans for playing both classic and modern Sonic music in two parts, especially with Crush 40 performing in the latter part. Today, the Sonic Symphony is on a world tour.
