Nintendo Announces Cadence of Hyrule, a Surprise Zelda Game

Whoa: Crypt of the Necrodancer is hitting Switch in Zelda form

Studio MDHR has announced that Cuphead will be making the jump to Nintendo Switch next month, with the developer now "working closely with the lovely team at Microsoft to investigate bringing Xbox Live features to the Nintendo Switch version" of the game. Cadence of Hyrule- Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda is exactly as the title describes: It's Crypt of the NecroDancer, but it features Link and Zelda, and it takes place in Hyrule, the setting for the Legend of Zelda video games.

To find out, I spoke with Ryan Clark, founder of Crypt of the NecroDancer developer Brace Yourself Games. According to both Cuphead co-creator, Jared Moldenhauer, and Nintendo's manager of publisher and developer relations, Kirk Scott, the collaboration "just kinda happened".

The game will play much like Crypt of the NecroDancer, in which you have to beat a series of 25 randomly generated tile maps with enemies by completing musical puzzles, only the puzzles will feature songs from Legend of Zelda.

Geomagnetic storm could make Northern Lights visible in MI this weekend
The phenomenon is also known as the aurora borealis. "As a result, aurora may be visible in Scotland where cloud breaks". The Northern Lights may also be slightly visible Sunday night, but the power grid energy will begin to fade by this time.

You can read the full interview over at Game Informer, where Moldenhauer teases the eventuality of Xbox Live integration and possibility of Nintendo themed easter eggs making the cut.

We don't know how many units each sold, or how they rank relative to one another, but we can compare it to last year's list and see what changed. But, this time around, everything is set in Hyrule, and Link and Zelda are out for booty-shaking blood. This "Netflix of games" would allow users to stream Xbox games to phones, not unlike the recently revealed Stadia. It's called Cadence of Hyrule, and it's coming to Nintendo Switch this spring.
