Super Smash Bros. is no stranger to pulling from far corners for its content, and the music is no exception. We’ve already known Fire Emblem Heroes, a mobile game, is having its menu music remixed for the game, but it looks like a certain other sword-heavy series isn’t about to be outdone. Have a listen to a song not from a game, but from a trailer that took our Breath away.

Defying franchise predecessors, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was light on songs for the most part, with its open ambiance doing wonders. In order to keep that Switch launch title and outright wonder represented, Ryo Nagamatsu (whose credits include fellow Zelda title Link Between Worlds, Mario Kart 8, and Splatoon 2; among others) has arranged the accompanying music from BotW’s Switch Presentation 2017 Trailer. You know, the one where Zelda cried.

This reorchestration adds in an electric guitar to carry it forward, without losing the bombastic feel and choir style vocals. It takes it to new heights, and will make nearly any fight feel just as vast as Link’s latest adventure.
