Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda (Switch) review


"A recent rhythm sensation gets a Hyrule twist on the Nintendo eShop this month."


Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda arrives on the Nintendo eShop on June 13, 2019, Nintendo revealed today as part of its E3 Direct presentation.

Cadence of Hyrule is described as a "rhythmic action-adventure game." While playing as either Link or Zelda, players explore a randomly generated overworld and dungeons, where they use familiar items from the franchise and also equipment from the Crypt of the NecroDancer franchise.



"By keeping the beat with 25 remixed classic tunes from the Legend of Zelda series," says a Nintendo press release, "players must outstep legendary enemies and bosses in rhythmic content."

If nothing else, the adventure promises to be rhythmic.

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda was developed by Brace Yourself Games, and it is already available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop with an MSRP of $24.99 USD. Maybe look into it if you've been longing for a different sort of tour of Hyrule.

Rating: N/A0/10

Mario and Sonic celebrate a momentous Olympics event, but they don't entirely stick the landing.

I was Trine 4 wordplay in the review body, but putting some here instead will have to suffice.

Always on the lookout for new Zelda games and what Nintendo offers into its titles, although I am not too sure about the "guitar hero" kind of concept. I am sure however that this game will be plenty of fun for most.

From what I've heard on social media, the title is a lot more ambitious than I would have assumed, with proper dungeons and everything. I don't have the money or time to buy/play it right now, but it's one I need to make sure I get around to at some point even though (like you) I'm not sure how well the rhythm aspect of the gameplay will work out for me.
