Zelda-Themed Follow-Up to Crypt of the NecroDancer; Cadence of Hyrule releases June 13

At Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct, viewers were given a new trailer for Cadence of Hyrule, a new Legend of Zelda themed spin-off of the rythm-based Crypt of the NecroDancer. The video shows more gameplay of Link and Zelda, while hearing versions of classic LoZ songs. Cadence of Hyrule launches on Nintendo Switch June 13.

The rundown follows-

“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. So equip yourself with an arsenal of iconic 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!”
