Category: Cadence of Hyrule

The year is winding down and gamers have been treated to a lot of new Zelda news, games, and surprises! It would take a while to hash out everything we’ve been treated to, but most importantly, we’ve gotten two new Zelda games this year! A spin-off in the form of Cadence of Hyrule and the remake of Link’s Awakening. Both games are very different, but which is your favorite? Honestly, I was excited for both! I had never played the…

When the discussion of the “next Zelda game” comes  up, we often think strictly in terms of the next mainline installment — a game that, depending on when the previous one released, could be anywhere from three to six years away. Even so, us Zelda fans aren’t exactly starved for content. Since The Wind Waker HD’s launch on September 20, 2013, we have seen at least one Zelda-related game release every year. From handheld quests to spin-offs to HD remakes,…

Perhaps one of the most surprising Nintendo releases this year was Cadence of Hyrule, a Zelda spin-off title developed by Brace Yourself Games, the indie creators behind Crypt of the Necrodancer. The game featured a return to Zelda‘s classic top-down camera and pixelated graphics. However, it came with a twist: rather than traditional Zelda movement and combat, the game focused on Crypt‘s rhythmic combat, wherein the player is only allowed to take actions on the beats of the current track. For some, this was…

Hello friends! We’re back after a week off due to to some technical snafus to talk all about MULTIPLAYER! Where have we been, and where could we be going? We brought in the expert, Kevin ‘KO’ O’Rourke, to help us talk Tri Force Heroes, Four Swords Adventures, Hyrule Warriors, Cadence of Hyrule and more and what aspects of those games we’d want want to see IF multiplayer were to be added to Breath of the Wild 2. Come hang and…

With Cadence of Hyrule’s release, we may be witnessing the dawn of a new era — one in which Nintendo is way more open about lending its most sacred properties to independent developers. Only time will tell, of course, but that won’t stop this man from dreaming about the possibilities that have just been created. Specifically, I’m dying to see more indie developers showcase their interpretations of the Hylian Hero’s adventures. Now, there are a few small-budget games that I’d…

Cadence of Hyrule, the new rhythm based game themed after Crypt of the Necrodancer dropped earlier this year! It’s a fun Zelda spin-off set to an amazing soundtrack and fun rhythmic dungeons to play through! The storyline takes you through four dungeons and two final bosses, but which is the best of the best? My personal favorite is Gleeokenspiel! I think Gleeokenspiel is the most fun of all the bosses that you encounter in the entire game. It’s not an easy…

The Legend of Zelda spinoff title Cadence of Hyrule was released just a few months ago to a largely warm reception. Though many fans have since had the chance to experience the magic of this unique rhythm game, Nintendo is still working to put Cadence in the hands of even more gamers. Hot off the heels of a demo being made available on the eShop, a new trailer was recently released highlighting some of the rave reviews the game has…

If you’ve yet to purchase the latest offshoot of the Zelda series, Cadence of Hyrule, now is your chance to test out a free demo of the game! Nintendo took to Twitter earlier today announcing a free demo of the game available to download on the eShop starting today. This is a great opportunity for Zelda fans who haven’t bought the game yet, and for those who are interested in it, but aren’t sure if they’ll enjoy it without testing…

Cadence of Hyrule’s approach to difficulty is interesting. My first hour or so was littered with bouts of frustration and more deaths than I care to admit. Indeed, for me, it boasts one of the steepest learning curves in recent memory. By the three-hour mark, though, I had a solid grasp of just about every enemy’s movements. Coupled with my abundance of heart pieces, Cadence’s latter half was a bit of a breeze. I still had a ton of fun,…

Welcome back to Zelda Runners, your bi-weekly installment of all things Zelda speedrunning. This week, thanks to the inclusion of the Cadence of Hyrule, we’ll be taking a closer look at the game’s categories and rulesets in Glitch Exhibition. I’ll also have a chat with an Ocarina of Time runner and, speaking of Ocarina of Time…   Now Playing The Ocarina of Time any% world record has once again been broken, for the first time being brought under the 17 minute mark. Runner Torje set the new 16:58 record just…
