Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer is a brand new game from Brace Yourself Games which brings NecroDancer’s Cadence along for an adventure with Link, Zelda, and the gang.
During Nintendo’s Nindies Direct stream, we were giving a surprise unveiling and the first of its kind, an acclaimed indie game getting a Nintendo guest character. While we’ve seen indie characters land in Nintendo titles, we’ve never really seen Nintendo characters appear outside of the usual titles.
So what can we expect from Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer? It looks like we can expect a NecroDancer-style game with characters from The Legend of Zelda, I mean, what more do you want?
Okay okay, there are some differences, most notably the art style which resembles that of portable Zelda titles. There’s also the music which is heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda. In total there’ll be 25 remixed songs in the game. Both Link and Zelda will also be playable in the game along with Cadence.
I guess now is a better time than any to dive into Curse of the NecroDancer in preparation for Cadence of Hyrule’s release.
Oh, and I asked our acclaimed co-founder to make notes during the Direct, here’s what he wrote for this particular title:
“Oh there’s a sale. Check out some sales and shit. Josh about to spend some fucking money tonight then. Fuck my life. Is that it? There’s music. OH SHIT SEQUEL TO CRYPT OF THE NECRODANCER?! OH MY GOD YES FUCKING LET’S GO NINTENDO WIN AGAIN. LINK AND ZELDA ARE IN IT WHAT THE LIVING FUCK THIS LOOKS SO GOOD OH MY LORD CADENCE OF HYRULE IS THE NAME OF THE GAME”
