Three New Cadence Of Hyrule DLC Packs Keep the Beat Going

New Cadence of Hyrule DLC adds more characters, tunes, and even a brand-new story.

The latest Nintendo Direct was all about Nintendo’s “developer and publisher partners,” and the first big announcement is Cadence of Hyrule DLC.

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer is getting three new DLC packs, on top of the free one that’s already available. The first brings five new characters to the game: Aria, Shadow Link, Shadow Zelda, Frederick, and Impa. Each character has their own unique playstyle. Impa, for example, excels at ranged combat. This first pack is due out later today (7/20).

Pack 2 is the Melody Pack. This one adds 39 new songs to the game, including remixes of the background music. And unlike in the base game, you can change the track playing at any time during your adventure.

Pack 3 adds new story content called Symphony of the Mask. Symphony of the Mask stars Skull Kid from Majora’s Mask (hence the title), and it revolves around a new map and brand-new music. Skull Kid’s big feature is he can change abilities based on what mask he wears, though we don’t yet know what masks will actually be there to find.

Finally, Cadence of Hyrule is getting a Season Pass if you want just the DLC, and there’s a Cadence of Hyrule: Complete Edition out on October 23. It’ll include all the DLC and the base game on one card.

Nintendo promised more Nintendo Direct Mini presentations focused on third party games for the rest of the year, so stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Switch game news as it develops.
