In an email promoting what’s coming to Nintendo Switch in May, Nintendo of Europe has seemingly indicated that Cadence of Hyrule will release on the portable home console this month.
The crossover game was mentioned alongside the three Resident Evil games and Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, as well as recent releases such as SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech and the Nintendo Labo VR updates to Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Revealed in the Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 presentation, Cadence of Hyrule is a The Legend of Zelda spin-off that has been created in collaboration with Brace Yourself Games – the developer behind hardcore roguelike rhythm game, Crypt of the NecroDancer.
It’s a crossover, in the sense that the rhythmic action-adventure will allow you to enjoy the gameplay of Crypt of the NecroDancer in the setting of The Legend of Zelda series.
You can play as Link or Princess Zelda, as whom you will explore the randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to, once again, save Hyrule. There are 25 The Legend of Zelda tunes that have been remixed, and every beat presents the chance to move, attack, defend, and more. That will help you to stay one step ahead of each enemy or boss.
