The next Zelda game, officially titled Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda, will seemingly launch this week for Nintendo Switch. On the surface, Nintendo of America’s website simply states the game will be released this “spring,” but inspecting the site’s source code reveals a line that reads, “Release date: May 30, 2019.”
If correct, that would have the game launch one whole day before the end of spring. It seems a plausible date, especially since Nintendo reportedly included the game in a newsletter promoting Switch games coming out this May (thanks, NintendoLife).
Cadence of Hyrule was announced in March. It’s a crossover between Nintendo’s famous Zelda series and indie rhythm hit Crypt of the NecroDancer, which first launched in 2015.
The new game is being developed by the same team behind the original, Brace Yourself. Its art style has been revamped since then, however, to match that of past Zelda games such as Minish Cap. You can watch Cadence of Hyrule’s reveal trailer above.
