Bluegrass Zelda Cover Reveals Hyrule's Folksy Roots

The Legend of Zelda's score has run the gamut, from epic to morose to pirate-y. But this new cover of Skyward Sword's main theme argues that bluegrass might be the most fitting style of them all. 

Although their full album doesn't come out for another few days, The Hit Points have dropped us this sample of their work early. Banjos and fiddles take the place of Skyward Sword's harps and brass, but the spirit of high-flying adventure remains. 

The Hit Points' self-titled debut album includes pieces from Street Fighter, Skyrim, and a cover of the athletic theme from Super Mario World that needs to be heard to be believed. It's available for pre-order right here, and will be released this Friday.
