Cadence of Hyrule (full title: Cadence of Hyrule - Crypt of the Necrodancer ft. The Legend of Zelda) is a Zelda Spin-Off released on June 13, 2019 for the Nintendo Switch. It is a crossover with the Crypt of the Necrodancer series, with rhythm-based gameplay, utilizing characters, enemies and more from the Zelda series. 25 remixed tracks appear in the game, as well as original compositions. A two-player co-op gameplay mode is also available from the beginning.[1]


While searching for new ideas, Director Ryan Clark was keen on Legend of Zelda characters appearing in the existing game Crypt of the Necrodancer as potential DLC, though the idea piqued the interest of Nintendo and the idea was developed into a full game.

"We imagined how cool it would be to have Zelda characters appearing in NecroDancer; say as DLC. To our surprise, Nintendo was extremely interested in the prospect, and before we knew it we were working on a completely new title, mashing up NecroDancer with The Legend of Zelda!"

— Clark, IGN[2]

The game released simultaneously worldwide on June 13th, 2019 (June 14th in some time-zones), slightly delayed from it's initial Spring 2019 launch window.
