Category: Cadence of Hyrule

It’s Q&A time this week as Andy and Taylor go ahead and answer 20 Debatable questions. Do Shrines do enough to replace dungeons? What if there were a female version of Ganondorf? What song should would we choose to replace the main theme if we had to pick? Is it too late for Impa in Smash? Why does Andy think the Zelda timeline is so lame!? We have all this, plus some quick thoughts on Detective Pikachu! Come in and…

Andy makes a triumphant return to the show this week and doesn’t waste any time getting down to business, asking where the heck Cadence of Hyrule has been since it’s announcement and taking Taylor through a list of dream Zelda spinoffs. Pikmin with Cucco’s? Assassin’s Creed with Sheikah? YES PLEASE! As if that wasn’t enough, to celebrate the Game Boy’s 30th birthday, the lads count down their top ten OG GB games ever. Link’s Awakening, Pokemon, Metroid II, and more!…

Nintendo Europe recently included Cadence of Hyrule in an email promoting the company’s upcoming May releases, indicating that the game will be hitting shelves this month. In the email, Cadence of Hyrule is showcased alongside other titles slated to release in May, including Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed III Remastered. Since the email does not include a concrete release date for the game and Nintendo’s website still lists it as due out “Spring 2019,” it’s unclear when exactly fans will…

The surprise announcement last month of the upcoming rhythm dungeon crawler Zelda spinoff Cadence of Hyrule is still something that I’m still fully wrapping my head around. It was almost like a floodgate moment — if we can get a Zelda crossover this out there, we can get anything! And if Nintendo is willing to let a small Canadian developer touch the Zelda IP, all of its different properties are probably on the table for any developer with a great…

We haven’t seen much of Cadence of Hyrule since its announcement last month, so color us happy to finally hear some new information about this rhythm roguelike Zelda spinoff. While it should come as no surprise, considering the Japanese publication of Crypt of the NecroDancer, Cadence of Hyrule will be published by Spike Chunsoft in Japan. The publisher recently launched an official page for the game on its website, which includes a few new screenshots and in-game assets. The official Cadence…

To say last month’s announcement of the Zelda-Crypt of the NecroDancer crossover, Cadence of Hyrule, took the gaming community by surprise is an understatement. For Nintendo to license one of their most well known IPs to an indie developer is a bold and significant move for the company going forward. This action by Nintendo has opened their IP to new possibilities that some may have never considered possible. As such, the question arises of which indie titles their games could…

The Champions’ are joined by special guest Rod Lloyd this week to talk about the totally out-of-left-field Cadence of Hyrule announcement, what Rod thought of Crypt of the Necrodancer, what this could mean for the future of Nintendo and Indie Devs, and for a bit of fun, dream up their perfect pairings of Indie Developers and which Nintendo series they would like to see them create a game in! We’ve got a news round up and a story about Andy’s…

Nintendo dropped quite the bombshell on us last week! In our newest entry in our Hyrule Compendium series, we discuss the recently announced Cadence of Hyrule. We give our initial impressions on the game and give some thoughts on what we think this could mean for the Zelda series. Feel free to let us know how this announcement has you feeling in the comments below. Are you interested in this? Will you pick up Crypt of the Necromancer to prepare?…

Can you believe it’s been an entire year of The Champions’ Cast? In a very special show, Andy and Taylor reflect back on the show’s beginnings and give thanks to everyone who helped it along the way before diving into a deep conversation about their favorite game: Ocarina of Time! The fellas rank all the dungeons in the game, plus all the mini dungeons, and even both the N64 and 3DS version of the Water Temple for good measure! Plus,…

During last week’s Spring Nindies Showcase, Nintendo revealed the newest entry in the Zelda lineup, a spin-off rhythm game called Cadence of Hyrule. And since the game’s announcement, we’ve been learning more and more about this new adventure in Hyrule. In fact, one piece of information recently revealed is that the pixel art in Cadence of Hyrule was created by two artists behind the acclaimed Sonic Mania. Art director for Sonic Mania Tom Fry (now of Evening Star Studios) took to Twitter…
