Cadence of Hyrule gets June 13 release date

You can play the newest game from the Crypt of the NecroDancer devs starting this Thursday.

During the E3 2019 presentation from Nintendo, a new trailer for Cadence of Hyrule was shown. Along with a closer look at the core gameplay, a release date was also announced... and it's a lot sooner than you might think. If you're interested in playing Cadence of Hyrule on Nintendo Switch, the game will be available starting this Thursday, June 13.

Cadence of Hyrule will play the same way as Crypt of the NecroDancer, blending together rhythm game mechanics with roguelike dungeon crawling. Unlike Crypt of the NecroDancer though, Cadence of Hyrule will feature characters and imagery from The Legend of Zelda. Note that the full title of the game is actually "Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda."

Of course, it's easier for most to refer to it simply as "Cadence of Hyrule," and if you've been eagerly awaiting a release date announcement for Cadence of Hyrule, today's Nintendo Direct had all of the answers. Following the trailer, it was confirmed that Cadence of Hyrule will release on Nintendo Switch this Thursday, June 13. 

You can pre-order the game on the Nintendo eShop for $24.99, or wait and purchase the game when it launches on Thursday. By purchasing the game, you'll be able to enjoy the signature dungeon crawling of Crypt of the NecroDancer with a Legend of Zelda twist. You can play as either Princess Zelda or Link, explore Hyrule-themed dungeons, and enjoy 25 remixed Legend of Zelda songs.
