New Cadence Of Hyrule Update Fixes Several Game-Breaking Exploits

A new update is now live for Cadence of Hyrule, The Legend of Zelda-themed Crypt of the Necrodancer-like game. The update implements several quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes.

Crypt of the Necrodancer speedrunner wilarseny posted the patch notes for the update on Reddit. In terms of new features, the update gives Cadence of Hyrule achievements, leaderboard categories for co-op play, and a Beat Rumble option–the latter of which causes your controller to vibrate to the beat of the music to better help you time your movements.

There are several bug fixes in the update as well, the most notable of which is the removal of an issue that “could cause enemies to take an extra move when the song looped.” The update also removes some game-breaking exploits, like picking up a bomb even after it had exploded and preventing Ganon from refilling his health by skipping cutscenes during his boss battle. The full patch notes are outlined below.

Cadence of Hyrule is available for Nintendo Switch. In GameSpot’s Cadence of Hyrule review, James O’Connor wrote, “Cadence of Hyrule is a fantastic Zelda game in its own right, even though it adopts the gameplay mechanics of another series. Beyond the aesthetics, it nails the satisfying sense of exploration and increasing power, and it revels in the joy of discovery, as all the best Zelda games do. It’s an extremely successful melding of two great game series and an experience that makes you feel eager for Nintendo to do more interesting things with their major licenses.”
