New Zelda Game Coming To The Switch This Spring
One of the biggest surprises during today’s Nindies Showcase was the announcement of a new Zelda game! Now, before you get too overhyped (although we think this one deserves some hype), it’s a rhythm action/adventure game featuring similar gameplay from Crypt of the NecroDancer. In Cadence of Hyrule you get to play as Link or Princess Zelda to explore randomly generated dungeons and fight to the beat of remixed Zelda songs. It will arrive this spring for the Switch. Take our money!
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.
