Cadence of Hyrule — Crypt of the NecroDancer brings rhythm action to Nintendo Switch this week

The highly anticipated, rhythm-adventure, Cadence of Hyrule, from developer Brace Yourself Games is almost here. Releasing this Thursday (6/13) at a price of  $24.99, Nintendo Switch players won’t have to wait long to move to the beat and defeat the forces of evil. For a taste of how the game weaves itself into the world of Hyrule, check out this brief overview:

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!

If you’re still on the fence, check out the game’s new E3 trailer above or the game’s official site right here, and then head over to the Nintendo eShop and pre-purchase the game today.
