Play cruelly overlooked Zelda spin-off Cadence Of Hyrule for free in new demo

To keep you entertained until the release of Tears Of The Kingdom, Nintendo now offers a free trial of Zelda rhythm action game Cadence Of Hyrule.

With May 12 quickly approaching, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom, which continues Link’s story as a sequel to Breath Of The Wild. 

While some fans can’t resist the temptation of watching leaked footage of the game, which was pirated a week before its release, others are left waiting and wishing for more Zelda-related content to enjoy. 

Well, Nintendo has a possible solution for those who are looking to pass the time – that doesn’t include spoilers – as it’s currently offering a free trial of Cadence Of Hyrule: Crypt Of The NecroDancer. 

The Zelda spinoff is available from now until Sunday, May 7, although you have to be a Nintendo Switch Online member to claim the free trial. Alternatively, you can buy it at a discounted price of £11.24 until May 14. 

The game, which is a spin-off from both Zelda and indie game Crypt Of The NecroDancer, requires you to explore an extensive overworld and dungeons in sync with the music. It’s basically Hi-Fi Rush but with Zelda and was sadly overlooked when it first released in 2019.

Cadence of Hyrule combines rhythm-based movement and fighting mechanics with nostalgic elements from earlier games in the franchise. 

Besides featuring iconic remixes from the series, it also allows you to play as Princess Zelda herself – a rarity in the franchise.

Although Tears Of The Kingdom launches in less than two weeks now, you should have enough time to bust a move in Cadence Of Hyrule before that.

New information suggests that Tears Of The Kingdom will have at least two separate maps, which suggests it will take considerably longer.

Given that many players spent hundreds of hours exploring just the single map in Breath of the Wild, it’s safe to assume that there won’t be any time for dancing.
