Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer feat. The Legend of Zelda is a Nintendo Switch game developed by Brace Yourself Games and published by Nintendo and Spike Chunsoft. It is a roguelike, action-adventure rythm game that serves as a spin-off for both the Zelda series and Crypt of the NecroDancer. It is notably the first full scale collaboration between Nintendo and an Indie developer.


The game combines the world of The Legend of Zelda with a rythm based gameplay modeled after Crypt of the NecroDancer while retaining some classical Zelda elements. The overworld and dungeons are both procedurally generated and the player control Cadence, Link or Zelda as they are fighting through hordes of classical Zelda enemies to the rythm of 25 remixed The Legend of Zelda tracks.


The game was officially announced on March 20, 2019 during a Nindies Showcase.
