Crypt of the Necrodancer and Legend of Zelda Spinoff “Cadence of Hyrule” Announced for Switch

Publisher Spike Chunsoft and developer Brace Yourself Games have announced Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer featuring The Legend of Zelda.

The new spinoff puzzle-music rhythm game is coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this spring, via the eShop.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


In the latest rhythmic action-adventure from Brace Yourself Games, you can enjoy the gameplay of Crypt of the NecroDancer in the setting of The Legend of Zelda series. As Link – or even as Princess Zelda – you’ll explore the randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to save Hyrule. Every beat of each remixed The Legend of Zelda tune is a chance to move, attack, defend, and more, so stay one step ahead of each enemy and boss…or face the music.

From modern-looking Lynels to the Hyrulean Soldiers of old, you must master the instinctive movements of each pixel-art enemy, and strategically outstep them in rhythmic combat. Equip yourself with an arsenal of iconic The Legend of Zelda items, as well as the spells and weapons from Crypt of the NecroDancer. You must be prepared to face Hyrule’s most wicked bosses, which have been transformed by magic, granting them mighty, new forms.
