Category: Cadence of Hyrule

Following up the Phillips CD-i games from last month, Mases and Gooey are back! And they’re ranking another Zelda game not developed directly by Nintendo: Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of The Necrodancer featuring The Legend of Zelda. Marking the first time Nintendo has cooperated with an indie developer, Cadence of Hyrule has become known for its fantastic take on fan-favorite Zelda music and its challenging difficulty. As per usual, the staff and Discord community of Zelda Dungeon were polled for their…

Remember when Avengers: Infinity War came out? The Internet flooded with memes surrounding the movie’s claim that it was the “Greatest Crossover Event of All-Time.” Marvel’s bold claims aside, that slogan is exactly how I feel whenever I reminisce on Capcom and Square developed Nintendo titles. Super Mario RPG? Classic. The Minish Cap? Chef’s kiss to that. And, of course, we’re all celebrating the Oracle games this week. But is handing Hyrule Castle’s keys to another developer best for the franchise,…

The Zelda franchise has always been about quality over quantity. While other Nintendo mainline series release new games every year or two, Zelda fans typically have to wait much, much longer. Sometimes, over half a decade between releases. As we approach Breath of the Wild’s four year anniversary, we’ve had to fill the void in creative ways. Side games like Hyrule Warriors and Cadence of Hyrule brought us both fun and lore. But, sometimes, gamers have to look outside of the franchise in order to get…

Fans of 2019’s surprise rhythm adventure Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of The NecroDancer featuring The Legend of Zelda have a new reason to fire up the game again. This week, Nintendo and Brace Yourself Games updated Cadence to Version 1.5.0! The patch notes include a nice list, but there are two major additions players will want to notice. Added an additional page of save data space, bringing the total to six. Added a “random” song option to the game’s soundtrack screen…

I’ll be the first to admit it—there are quite a few Zelda titles I’ve either never played or never completed. Like most kids, my access to video games was limited to what my parents picked up for me. Or, what was handily available for rental. And, as an adult, there just simply is never enough time. I realize how ancient that lament makes me sound, but it’s really the truth! At the start of the year, I had the wayward…

The Zelda series isn’t exactly one for much in the way of spin-offs, with only a handful over the course of the series’ long history. Regardless, entries like Cadence of Hyrule and Hyrule Warriors offer some of the most unique looks at another view of the franchise… And I guess Freshly Picked Tingle Rosy Rupeeland is a thing. With the next entry in Hyrule Warriors just on the verge of release, set to feature anywhere from 18-24 characters at the…

The end of this year is rapidly approaching, which means that it’s time for my favorite annual tradition here at Zelda Dungeon: Best. Zelda. Ever! While no new Zelda games were released this year, we did have some DLC come out for Cadence of Hyrule and we’re looking forward to the upcoming release of a new Hyrule Warriors game: Age of Calamity! The prequel to Breath of the Wild just missed the cut for this year’s list, so you’ll have…

For the first time since its digital release, the rhythm dungeon crawler Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda is available for physical purchase. The physical edition includes a code for all 3 DLC packs, including: Symphony of the Mask Character Pack Melody Pack Earlier today, to celebrate the game’s physical release, Nintendo announced that will be giving away vinyl editions of Cadence of Hyrule‘s soundtrack to a few lucky fans. Personally, I prefer physical…

Now you have the chance to move to the music with a limited edition soundtrack of Cadence of Hyrule from Nintendo. Nintendo revealed on Twitter this morning that US followers have a chance to retweet their announcement for a chance to win a limited edition vinyl of the Cadence of Hyrule OST. The vinyl features remixes of classic music from the Legend of Zelda series. Cadence of Hyrule released last summer to huge praise from fans for its remixed classics of Zelda…

While I’ve been a huge Mario Kart fan since the beginning, Nintendo’s flagship racing game (sorry F-Zero) wasn’t actually my favorite as a kid. That honor would have to go to the far less celebrated Diddy Kong Racing, which I’m still convinced is one of the better racing games Nintendo has made. The game was unique at the time, allowing players to choose between racing via plane, hovercraft, or traditional kart. Players could race against opponents using the vehicle type…
