The Cadence of Hyrule lands on the Nintendo Switch this week, along with a few surprises like the Contra Collection and The Secret of Mana.
Keep the rhythm
I don’t think I’m the target audience for Cadence of Hyrule, but even I have to admit it looks pretty cool. The game is a spinoff of sorts for Crypt of the Necrodancer, but starring Link, Zelda, and the Hyrule crew.
Coming off of E3, it’s a fairly large release for Nintendo, who had a few surprises this week as well. The collections of both Konami’s Contra and Secret of Mana surfaced, though neither is on the official rundown of what’s new here.
There is that trio of new NES titles for the Online virtual console though. All three are cool, though Double Dragon II is the clear headlining title.

Choose to embark on your as Cadence, Link or Princess Zelda, each with different powers and abilities, before adventuring through a randomly generated overworld map where classic areas like the desert or the forest will differ, meaning no two playthroughs will be the same.
