Shin Megami Tensei: Beloved action rhythm game “Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda” receives a three-part update of paid content starting today.
An official crossover between the developer of the indie hit “Crypt of the NecroDancer,” where the hero’s journey takes place in time to the beat of a song, and Nintendo’s “Legend of Zelda” franchise, “Cadence of Hyrule” welcomes a Character Pack, Melody Pack and an extension of the plot.
The Character Pack, released immediately on July 20, includes five new characters for players to experiment with and master: Impa and her far-reaching Naginata spear weapon; Aria, who must remain on the beat at all costs; shopkeeper Frederick’s “Cadence of Hyrule”; and the “Zelda” franchise’s grey incarnations lead in Shadow Link and Shadow Zelda.
The Melody Pack contains 39 songs and remixes, while the Mask’s Symphony adds a new map, a new song collection, and a new character to play as the mysterious Skull Kid. Those latter two packages are due to be released before the end of October, while a Season Pass includes all three (once available) with some bonus costumes for Link and Zelda to incentivize the blind buy or, coming October, bulk buy.
Currently, the UK branch of Nintendo anticipates the Melody Pack for August and the tale of Skull Kid for September, leaving October 23 for a repackaged all-inclusive version of “Cadence of Hyrule.”
A two-part surprise was offered to fans of the cult classic role-playing action series “Shin Megami Tensei,” with 2003’s “Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne” announced for an HD remaster in Spring 2021 and “Shin Megami Tensei V,” first revealed to Switch in 2017, now scheduled for simultaneous worldwide release in 2021.
Although the “Shin Megami Tensei” franchise has not yet debuted on Nintendo Switch, the “SMT: Strange Journey” from 2009 and the “SMT IV” from 2013 were made available internationally on Nintendo’s respective handhelds, the DS and 3DS predecessors.
The popularity of his “Persona” spin-off role-playing adventure series, whose 2008 “Persona 4” and 2016 “Persona 5” are well known among fans of the genre, is perhaps just as important, even if the pair is not available on Switch at this time.
While “SMT V” remains an apparent exclusive Switch, developer-publisher Atlus quickly confirmed “SMT III: Nocturne-HD Remaster” for PlayStation 4.
Also in July’s Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase, multiplayer shooter “Rogue Company” was given a little bump of visibility one hour ahead of its cross-platform release across Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, as was arcade wrestler “WWE 2 K Battlegrounds” (Sept. 18, also on PS4, XBO, PC and Stadia).
