Slash-Slash Real Smooth in ‘Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Ft. The Legend of Zelda’ Sliding to Switch This Week

During Nintendo’s E3 2019 direct, developer Brace Yourself Games dropped a new trailer and a release date for Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Ft. The Legend of Zelda. The game will be sliding on Nintendo Switch this Thursday, June 13.

For those unaware, this game is coming from the creators of the popular indie hit rhythm-based roguelike, Crypt of the Necrodancer. In this new adventure, however, which will full of dropped bombs and spin slashes, players will have the option to play as Link or even as Zelda and explore a completely randomly generated overworld filled with dungeons to check out all in the hopes of saving Hyrule.

Now, unlike Legend of Zelda games in which players can just run around as they please, for this game, every move and action should follow along with the game’s soundtrack. So, going with the flow will be the way to go to make sure Link or Zelda don’t get into any major trouble. Thankfully for players, they don’t need to find the guy that says “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.” to get equipment as players will have the power to choose and equip themselves with a nice mix of legendary Legend of Zelda equipment. In addition, spells and weapons from Crypt of the Necrodancer are also thrown into the mix, for good measure.

Just like the Legend of Zelda series, players can expect to face some serious challenges as they go toe-to-toe with menacing enemies and deadly bosses that must be taken down. Problem is, they won’t go down without a fight, so players gotta fight for their right to party in Hyrule.

For any music fans out there, this one’s for you: The game will have 25 remixed classic Legend of Zelda tunes. We’re thinking that when we’ll play the game, we’ll be singing, “Please don’t stop the music, music.”

Nod your head back and forth as you step right into the tune-filled, reimagined world of Hyrule with this trailer below:
