Zelda Symphony Will Perform on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Next Week

The video game guests continue.

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert will welcome another video game guest next week. CBS has announced that the Tuesday, October 13 show will include a musical performance by The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses, Nintendo's touring concert of music from the iconic role-playing game series.

In addition to a musical performance, Nintendo is using the appearance to promote its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game, The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes. "Highlights" from the game will be shown during the program, presumably during the musical performance.

Actor Elijah Wood is one of the actor guests that evening. He is perhaps best known for his role as Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but he is also a video game voice actor. Most recently, he voiced one of the leading characters in Double Fine's adventure game, Broken Age.

The Late Show is proving to be a welcoming place for video games. Zelda's appearance next week will mark the third time video games have been represented on the program, following PewDiePie and No Man's Sky developer Sean Murray's appearances just last week.

The show airs at 11:35 PM EDT on CBS.

TriForce Heroes launches on October 23, while the Symphony of the Goddesses tour runs across the United States and Europe through the end of the year. See a full list of tour stops here.

Disclosure: CBS is GameSpot's parent company.
