Last night's episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert featured a musical performance by The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, Nintendo's touring orchestra dedicated to the adventure series. Watch the video below to see the group perform never-before-heard music from upcoming Nintendo 3DS game The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes, as well as the main theme that you're surely familiar with.

It's a nice video, and the music of course is great. But the video's caption on YouTube may not sit well with everyone. It reads: "Rejoice, nerds! This is the music that awaits you in heaven." Also, be sure to stick through to the end to see an awkward handshake between Colbert and the symphony conductor.

TriForce Heroes launches on October 23, while the Symphony of the Goddesses tour is currently running across the US and Europe. The 2016 leg of the tour, Master Quest, was just announced this week. Check out the symphony's complete touring schedule here.

Zelda's appearance on The Late Show marks the third time video games have been represented on the program, following PewDiePie and No Man's Sky developer Sean Murray's appearances earlier in October.
