Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses producer interested in making a Nintendo All Star concert
Posted 6 days ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 3 Comments
Jason Michael Paul, with his company Jason Michael Paul Productions, has been running the Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert for years. Paul does have interest in branching out into other areas of Nintendo music, though the decision ultimately lies with the big N itself.
In an interview with Vooks, Paul mentioned that he’d like to work on a “Nintendo All Star concert”. Apparently he’s even “presented these ideas for years and years.” The premise is what you’d expect – a whole concert of music from Nintendo franchises in a single concert.
“(laughs) Of course, it’s all on Nintendo! I’ve already presented these ideas for years and years. Now so hopefully I’ll get my shot to be able to do that and hopefully I’ve done the Legend of Zelda franchise justice enough to be to be handed the torch to be able to do that because the idea of creating a Nintendo All Star concert is definitely something I would love to do. It would basically be all of Nintendo’s IP being presented all in one concert, it would be phenomenal.”

Zmart, a retailer in Chile, posted a few interesting Splatoon 2 images on Twitter. The first thing we’re able to see is the cartridge. The retailer also shows images of a reversible cover. It’s unclear if the cover is just being offered by Zmart, though we’re hoping it’s something that will be extended in all major territories.
