Updated May 31, 2019: Cadence of Hyrule will reportedly be released in June, according to a new trailer. The new footage was shared by Nintendo Japan's Indie World series, and although it doesn't reveal an exact date, we at least have a more concrete timeframe. Perhaps Nintendo will reveal more details at E3.
Nintendo Switch owners are getting not one, but two Zelda games in 2019. In addition to a gorgeous remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Nintendo will also release Cadence of Hyrule, which is being developed by Brace Yourself Games.
(The official title is actually Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer feat. The Legend of Zelda.)
The announcement is unprecedented because it means Switch fans will get two Zelda titles in one year. Additionally, Nintendo is handing the keys over to a small indie studio, which previously made Crypt of the NecroDancer.
Here's Cadence of Hyrule's official synopsis:
As Link or Princess Zelda, players explore randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to save Hyrule, and every beat of the 25 remixed Legend of Zelda tunes is a chance to move, attack, defend and more. From modern-looking Lynels to the Hyrulean Soldiers of old, players must master the instinctive movements of each pixel-art enemy and strategically outstep them in rhythmic combat using an arsenal of iconic items from The Legend of Zelda, as well as the spells and weapons from Crypt of the NecroDancer.
No release date for Cadence of Hyrule has been revealed, but we should expect it to launch sometime in spring 2019.
To the beat
Cadence of Hyrule is a rythmic action-adventure from the creators of Crypt of the Necrodancer. Players will explore a randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to save Hyrule. The game features 25 remixed classic Legend of Zelda songs.
