Ichiro Takijun is one of the performers on the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening soundtrack for the Switch remake. Ichiro handles the flute portions of multiple songs, and they couldn't be more happy to announce that fact. Ichiro took to Twitter to share a story of how their mother used to scold them for playing games so much. Looks like all the game-playing paid off!
“Mom! I can play Zelda’s treasure chest sound on my flute! ”
Mom: “Games again? Stop wasting your time! Go and study!”
I want to let my dejected young self back then that 26 years later, you’ll be playing the flute in the Zelda remake.’
