Todos sabemos que una parte importante de cualquier juego de The Legend of Zelda es precisamente su música, pero en Breath of the Wild Nintendo ha puesto mucha atención al detalle teniendo muchas referencias a la música de juegos pasados en la última entrega de la serie.
En esta ocasión, un usuario de Reditt ha encontrado que el tema de Batalla del Guardián es en realidad una inversión de Zelda’s Lullaby (Nana de Zelda) en su versión de Skyward Sword:
So I was listening to the BOTW soundtrack and came across this piece (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JsHo5sc0OU) and noticed at about 21 seconds you hear a piano play the notes of Zelda’s lullaby, starting on the same high note (a high B) as is used in the intro to the Guardian Battle theme (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq3nncuA1Ak). That got me thinking there might be a connection between the two pieces.
First thing I thought was they are both in 3 time (probably a coincidence), and then I looked at the main notes being played in the Guardian theme. The piece mainly hammers out the notes B, F#, and A (in that order).
B to F# is a fourth down; F# to A is a minor third up.
The notes in Zelda’s lullaby are B, D, and A (in that order).
B to D is a minor third up; D to A is a fourth down.
Both tunes go up a minor third and down a fourth, just in different orders – they’re sort of inversions of each other!!!
This makes sense as Zelda’s research was critical in restoring the guardians and the ancient Sheikah technology, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the same theme has been scattered throughout the other more technological-sounding pieces in the game…
