If you're hoping to grab a physical copy of Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda, you'll be pleased to know that you can now order it from the Nintendo Official UK Store with free shipping.
The physical copy comes with all three DLC packs as standard, including five newly added characters, 39 new songs, additional story content and a new map. You could instead opt to buy download codes for the base game and the season pass (which together make up all of the content in the physical release), although it's actually cheaper to buy the physical version.

The game's DLC, Season Pass and physical edition were all announced during the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partners Showcase held in July. During the show, we learnt all about the three DLC packs available:
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.
Will you be buying this one? Do you already own a copy of the game digitally? Let us know in the comments.
So glad I waited for the physical! Now I just need to wait for a sale =0p
i’m in the USA; should i go ahead and grab it now? is it limited, or will i still be able to buy it in 2 weeks since it’s thru nintendo? do y’all think there will be a USA release?
edit: nvm, one google search revealed the answer to all my questions 🤦🏼♀️ sorry to have been That person.
Well that explains the massive restock of Zelda amiibo...
Might get it for collector's purposes, but I can't seem to get into the game. I just can't seem to get the rhythm, which is strange as I am not normally terrible at rhythm games.
I am aware there is a free-moving method, but I feel like that defeats the point of the game, in which case, why bother?
eager to buy and play (listening family jules ! I LOVED crypt of the necrodancer!! true, i did well to wait, now i can grab physical!
This is on the list
@Arbor on play asia there is an American physical for pre-order, and for my taste it is ok to ask here, even that Google has the said information, because you are helping others with same concerns about availability.
Glad I held off. Seems an absolute steal and must have at that price.
I'm gonna be ordering it from 365games.
They have it for £32.99, and you get "player points" on purchase which can be redeemed for vouchers.
They occasionally run promotions that award bonus points, which I'm waiting for since this game isn't coming out for two months anyway.
"And it's cheaper than buying everything digitally"
By about 0.99 GBP... That's hardly worth getting excited about...
Digital Version: £22.49.
Season Pass: £13.49.
Digital Total: £35.98.
Physical Edition with Season Pass: £34.99.
All things considered... I did say that I would love to pick up this game if it received a physical edition.
But I am just not buying it from Nintendo UK in this specific instance.
@RupeeClock Even cheaper here. £29.95 and you get points on each purchase to redeem on future purchases too.
They are consistently £5 cheaper per game than amazon or GAME in my experience. Check out untitled goose game and pikmin 3. Or even Cyberpunk 2077. Great value store!
@Angelic_Lapras_King are the amiibos used for something in this game? I've just had a load of blank NFC cards arrive and have been looking for things to use them for.
@MS7000 The main way to "get" the rhythm in the game is to learn the enemy behaviour. If you can understand why you will or won't get hit if you do a certain action, then that will help a lot in understanding how to play. Fixed-beat mode is a good way of slowing down the action so you can observe the enemies at your own pace. Additionally, holding the screenshot button and taking a 30-second video immediately after dying is also a good way of figuring out why an enemy killed you.
Now I just need a physical CD-i collection Switch port and my life will be complete
I was originally really enthusiastic about this game, but I tried the demo and just couldn't get into it. Maybe I should give it another try.
If you are already announcing DLC, then include it in the price of the game!
This nonsense needs to end.
@oatmaster I don't think so, think it's more a "Hey, why not add an amiibo to your order since you like Zelda" incentive, since you need to buy 2 amiibo to save on shipping.
Will the DLC be included in the cartridge or will you have to download it?
