Get Your Groove On Again with Cadence of Hyrule's Free DLC

A brand new storyline just dropped for Cadence of Hyrule. Here's what it's all about.

Cadence of Hyrule was one of the year's surprise indie hits — heavy emphasis on "surprise." After being nominated for this year's Game Awards, Cadence of Hyrule is getting some new content with the free DLC, Octavo's Ode. The DLC is available now.

The news comes in an tweet from Nintendo UK.

As the name suggests, this extra content for Cadence of Hyrule is all about the game's villain, Octavo. You'll play as the purple baddie and take on the game's toughest challenges and enemies, trusty Golden Lute by your side.

It's not just a strict dungeon run either. Octavo's Ode tells the story behind why Octavo came to Hyrule and felt the need to try and conquer it.

We thoroughly enjoyed Cadence of Hyrule's clever blending of Zelda themes and tunes with Crypt of the Necrodancer's unique gameplay. Getting even more of it — and for free, at that — is certainly not a bad thing.

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Cadence of Hyrule and Zelda news as it gets composed.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
