Publisher Spike Chunsoft and developer Brace Yourself Games have announced Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer featuring The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Switch. It will launch via the eShop this spring.

View the reveal trailer below:


Here is an overview of 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.

Key Features:

  • A rhythmic action-adventure game in the world of The Legend of Zelda series.
  • Explore the randomly generated overworld and dungeons to save Hyrule as Link or Princess Zelda.
  • Use items from The Legend of Zelda series, plus spells and weapons from Crypt of the NecroDancer.
  • Outstep legendary enemies and bosses in rhythmic combat.
  • Keep the beat with 25 remixed classic The Legend of Zelda tunes.

Why wasn't this in the Nindies showcase? I just bought Crypt of the Necrodancer and guess what: thanks Nintendo. Now I have to buy it all over again. My pocket, you jerks!

Holy shit. This was the last thing I expected. Not often I'm this hyped for an indie game. I thought it looked really cool even before the Zelda aspect was introduced, but when that part was shown, and Zelda herself was playable, my excitement shot through the roof.
