The first of Cadence of Hyrule’s new DLC Packs is releasing later today while the other two will be releasing later this year
Today’s Nintendo Direct Mini was, well, just that. But it came with some big news on upcoming and existing titles – one of them being Cadence of Hyrule, the title that mashes Crypt of The Necrodancer and The Legend of Zelda into one gorgeous battle to classic gaming tunes. The game was originally released on June 13, 2019, on Switch and hasn’t made the trip to any other platforms just yet. Now a year out from its release, Cadence of Hyrule is treating players with not one but three different DLC packs.
The first of the trio is a character pack that adds five new characters from classic Legend of Zelda titles; Impa, Aria, Shadow Link, Shadow Zelda and Frederick. Second is a melody pack that adds 39 new songs to the game. Composed by FamilyJules, A_Rival and Chipzel, this new tracklist includes remixed versions of the game’s background music which can be changed at any time. The final DLC pack for Cadence of Hyrule is titled Symphony of The Mask and puts players in the shoes of Skull Kid, a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series. As this mischievous mask-wearer, players can venture through a new map with new songs, enemies and a new story to boot. To change things up a little bit more, Skull Kid can switch masks to gain new abilities.
The first DLC pack for Cadence of Hyrule, the character pack, will be available later today with the second and third packs releasing at a later date before the end of October. It’s just as well that instead of buying all three separately, a Season Pass including all DLC will also be going on sale later today. Of course, this all leaves out those of us that have never played Cadence of Hyrule. If you’re a part of that group, simply wait until October 23, when a version of Cadence of Hyrule with all DLC included releases on Switch. As of writing, no pricing for the DLC packs, Season Pass, or the new version of Cadence of Hyrule has been released. This article will be updated with those prices as they become available.
