​Play This New Zelda Song Backwards. Trust Me

If you're like me, you probably heard the music in the new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, enjoyed it, and left it at that. Ah, but there's a secret hidden within.

Listen to the music in the trailer backward, as captured by WiiC24, and you'll hear the Hyrule Castle Theme from Link to the Past. Check it out in the video above; the old theme is here:

This isn't the first time Nintendo has flipped past Zelda themes: They reversed Zelda's Lullaby from Oarina of Time to make the Ballad of the Goddess in Skyward Sword:

Goes to show, if you write enough good melodies, you can always go back to your past works, flip them around, and get a whole new collection of tunes. Feels like there's a pretty good Nintendo joke to be made here...

    Played Link to the Past so many times when I was younger that I didn't really even need to hear it backwards when I first saw that trailer

    Funny thing is I was watching the trailer and thinking it sounds so much like the Hyrule theme, but at the same time its so very different and I couldn't put my finger on why. NOW I KNOW! lol. Awesome!
