Fans finally got their hands on Cadence of Hyrule this week, and it seems that everyone is falling in love with this wonderful rhythm roguelike. A lot of praise has been justly showered on Cadence‘s music, as the game celebrates the musical legacy of the entire Zelda series with a collection of bumpin’ rearrangements. Well, with the game finally available for all to play, the talented folks behind its amazing soundtrack are sounding off on social media to share in the joy of the fans.
After Cadence of Hyrule dropped on Thursday, guitarist Jules Conroy, who previously performed on the soundtrack of Crypt of the NecroDancer, officially announced that he played all the guitars heard in the latest Zelda crossover. Conroy shared about his involvement with the project in a recent YouTube video:
Conroy has called the opportunity to be a part of the Zelda series “an honor” and considers Cadence of Hyrule “a huge leap for Nintendo.”
This winter I have worked with @BYG_Vancouver to record OSTs from Cadence of Hyrule!!!! I have recorded the Ice Dungeon music, Wizzoboe music and sound effects. It was very hard to keep this as a secret for SO LONG!!! Please send me some Wizzoboe fan arts!!! pic.twitter.com/nxz30mZD2e

huge thanks to @dannyBstyle for letting me be a part of this project! You're one of the most naturally talented composers I know, and also one of the most genuine and kind persons out there. Hopefully some big collabs are coming in the future 😉

Speaking of the violin, multi-instrumentalist Michaela Nachtigall (also known as mklachu) announced her involvement with the game, as she played both the violin and the ever-wonderful otamatone:

You may remember mklachu’s violin-otamatone cover of “Outset Island” from The Wind Waker.

Baranowsky also addressed one popular question and said he can’t say anything right now about the release of Cadence of Hyrule‘s soundtrack.
Cadence of Hyrule — from its art, to its gameplay, to its music — was a labor of love by a talented and passionate group of artists. Be sure to follow every single one of these people on social media!
