Cadence of Hyrule finally launched on the Switch eShop yesterday. But not even a day later, we’re hearing that there’s something special to unlock. We don’t want to explain any further in fear or spoiling the surprise in any way, but those who are interested in finding out more should continue on below.

Cadence of Hyrule kicked off today’s Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 stream with a lengthy look at gameplay. We have the full recording below.

No one could have originally anticipated the final announcement for the latest Nindies Showcase earlier this year. Brace Yourself Games, in collaboration with Nintendo, revealed Cadence of Hyrule – a new game for Switch that takes a page out of Crypt of the NecroDancer.

At BitSummit a few days ago, Japanese website 4Gamer caught up with a few people involved with the game. Lead designer Oliver Trujillo and Brace Yourself CEO Ryan Clark along with Spike Chunsoft’s Riku Nikaido spoke about how the game came to be, one of Nintendo’s requests, and more such as how the team looked at Smash Bros. for Zelda’s moves.
