It Looks Like A New Legend Of Zelda Game Is Releasing This Week

It Looks Like A New Legend Of Zelda Game Is Releasing This Week

Having been revealed in March's indie-focused Nintendo Direct, and immediately catching our eyes (and ears), Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer now seems like it's set for an imminent release. Which is to say: all signs point to there being a brand-new Legend of Zelda game available for Nintendo Switch this week.

The game - a Zelda-themed twist on the superb Crypt of the NecroDancer, a roguelike adventure where keeping the beat is the only way to progress - was listed as a Spring 2019 release. But someone's always digging, aren't they - and in this case that someone is Twitter user 'NWPlayer123', who discovered that meta data for Cadence of Hyrule's store listing had updated to 30 May. That's, like, two days' time. Exciteeeee.

The game features both Zelda and Link as playable characters (nice) alongside original Crypt hero Cadence, and you'll tap along to music based on the various familiar themes of the long-running adventure series (nice).

So no, it's not a mainline Zelda game as such - remember, though, that we are getting that sweet-looking remake of Link's Awakening later this year. But so far as I'm concerned, more opportunities to wander around Hyrule are always welcomed. Or in this case, a chance to strut here and shimmy there while stabbing whatever's in my way. Take that, uh, to the beat, uh, yeeeah.

A co-development between Brace Yourself Games (the team behind 2015's original Crypt) and Spike Chunsoft, Cadence of Hyrule is a digital-only title for now. But it's precisely the kind of game that one of those small-batch companies, like Limited Run, would want to get their hands on, assuming Nintendo allows them.

Will you be grabbing this neat twist on all things Zelda, when it comes out for Switch? Just how good is your knowledge of these melodies? When will a game come out that's better than Breath of the Wild, honestly? Let us know - we're on Twitter and Facebook, and we're now live on Snapchat Discover, too.
