'Cadence of Hyrule' for Switch puts a Zelda spin on an indie classic

Sometimes, the universe provides.

Hyrule is about to get down. Cadence of Hyrule - Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda (what a mouthful) is heading to the Nintendo Switch this spring. It's a top-down 2D roguelike that infuses the universe of The Legend of Zelda into the rhythmic world of beloved 2015 indie game Crypt of the NecroDancer.

Cadence of Hyrule stars Link and Zelda, rather than Cadence, the protagonist of Crypt of the NecroDancer. The game plays just like Crypt of the NecroDancer, forcing players to keep the beat while they battle through beastly dungeons. But, this time around, everything is set in Hyrule, and Link and Zelda are out for booty-shaking blood.

The game is randomly generated and it features items from The Legend of Zelda, plus spells and weapons from Crypt of the NecroDancer. Best of all, Cadence of Hyrule has 25 remixed, chiptuney songs from the Zelda series.
