Keep the beat and keep Hyrule from meeting certain doom

In the latest rhythmic action-adventure from Brace Yourself Games, you can enjoy the gameplay of Crypt of the Necrodancer in the setting of The Legend of Zelda series. As Link—or even as Princess Zelda—you’ll explore the randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to save Hyrule. Every beat of each remixed, The Legend of Zelda tune is a chance to move, attack, defend, and more, so stay one step ahead of each enemy and boss…or face the music. From modern-looking Lynels to the Hyrulean Soldiers of old, you must master the instinctive movements of each pixel-art enemy, and strategically outstep them in rhythmic combat. So equip yourself with an arsenal of iconic Legend of Zelda items, as well as the spells and weapons from Crypt of the Necrodancer. You must be prepared to face Hyrule’s most wicked bosses, which have been transformed by magic, granting them mighty, new forms!

In the latest rhythmic action-adventure from Brace Yourself Games, you can enjoy the gameplay of Crypt of the NecroDancer in the setting of the Legend of Zelda™ series. From character and enemy movement to attacks and dodging, gameplay relies on following the beat of the music on your journey to save Hyrule.

From modern-looking Lynels to the Hyrulean Soldiers of old, you must master the instinctive movements of each pixel-art enemy, and strategically outstep them in rhythmic combat. You must be prepared to face Hyrule’s most wicked bosses, which have been transformed into musically-monstrous forms.

Want to march to the beat of your own drum? Fixed Beat Mode allows you to go at your own pace. Enemy patterns remain the same, but they won’t move until you do.

With this bundle, you can access all DLC packs as they are released. First, fight to the rhythm with five additional characters like Impa and Frederick, the shopkeeper, in DLC Pack #1. Next, enjoy 39 new remixes that you can set to any location in DLC Pack #2. Finally, Skull Kid takes center stage in the new Symphony of the Mask story in DLC Pack #3.
