The Nintendo Direct Mini: Partners Showcase got off to a pretty cracking start with lots of content announcements for Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda.

Three paid DLC packs are coming to the game this year, with the first of those launching later today for $5.99. Here's a rundown of each:

Pack 1: Character Pack – In the first pack, five additional characters join the game’s ensemble, including Impa, who excels in ranged attacks with the Naginata weapon, and Aria, perfect for players who like a challenge. It’s game over if you take one hit or miss a beat with her.

Pack 2: Melody Pack – After purchasing this pack, 39 songs will be added to the game, including remixed versions of the game’s background music. Players can change the background music at any time so they can listen to their favorite songs while journeying through Hyrule.

Pack 3: Additional Story Content – Symphony of the Mask – Play as the mysterious Skull Kid and venture through a new map in the third DLC pack, complete with new songs and a new story. Skull Kid also possesses the power to change abilities based on the masks he dons.

Packs 2 and 3 are set to be available before the end of October (available for $5.99 and $9.99 respectively), and you can ensure you'll get your hands on them by picking up a Season Pass ($14.99). This Season Pass contains all three DLC packs (you'll get them as they're released) and will also grant you access to bonus costumes for Link and Zelda.

That's not all, either, as it was also announced that a physical edition featuring all of the game's base content and DLC will be available later this year. Available on October 23rd for $39.99, this will be perfect for anyone who's yet to give the game a go.
