Cadence of Hyrule

Just in case it had slipped your mind, here's your friendly reminder that a lovely physical Zelda game is out today!

Yes, Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda's physical release with all DLC included is now available. If you haven't already bought the game digitally, this is a fantastic way to get all of its content in one lovely package.

It's safe to say that we loved this one when we played it for review – and that was before all the DLC arrived. Here's what we said:

By allowing a talented indie developer to play in the universe, Nintendo has gained a fantastic entry in the franchise that feels like a celebration – specifically of its music, a part of the series destined to take a back seat as the majesty of Hyrule is increasingly conveyed through the scale of its world rather than melodies from the days when the 'kingdom' was really a walled garden. Cadence of Hyrule is not just a brilliant game, it's a brilliant Zelda game - one that you won't want to miss.

Let us know if you've treated yourself to a copy – or if you're planning on doing just that – with a comment below. This might just be the perfect starter before the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity main course next month.
