Crypt of the NecroDancer Hatsune Miku

Hatsune Miku is joining Crypt of the NecroDancer as a new DLC character, Brace Yourself Games just revealed.

There’s quite a bit to the DLC here. Obviously you’ll be able to play as Hatsune Miku, who attacks by dancing through enemies. A new “Sing” ability is included as well, and all armors are reskinned as official Miku outfits. Finally, the DLC comes with 15 songs, including two all new Miku tracks created by Danny Baranowsky.

Crypt of the NecroDancer Synchrony

Big DLC is about to drop for the Switch version of Crypt of the NecroDancer, which is dubbed Synchrony. It’s set for release on March 13, 2024.

Crypt of the NecroDancer: Synchrony brings about online multiplayer, new characters, mod support, and other new content. The full details can be found in the following overview:

It was all the way back at PAX Prime 2013 that Crypt of the Necrodancer – a very successful dungeon crawler rougelite with rhythm-based combat – first started getting widespread love. Upon its full release, the game became so highly acclaimed that the team behind it was eventually able to work with Nintendo on a Legend of Zelda-themed spinoff called Cadence of Hyrule. Back for another victory lap, developer Brace Yourself Games attended PAX West 2023 to show off their latest project, Rift of the Necrodancer. While it’s a much more traditional rhythm game than the developer’s previous experiments, my demo with Rift highlighted some interesting twists on the genre that I think will surprise even seasoned fans of the genre.
