During today’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, it was revealed that Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda is getting three paid DLC packs in the coming months. The first of these packs will be available later today. Here’s a rundown of each from Nintendo’s press release:
- Pack 1: Character Pack ($5.99)– In the first pack, five additional characters join the game’s ensemble, including Impa, who excels in ranged attacks with the Naginata weapon, and Aria, perfect for players who like a challenge. It’s game over if you take one hit or miss a beat with her.
- Pack 2: Melody Pack ($5.99)– After purchasing this pack, 39 songs will be added to the game, including remixed versions of the game’s background music. Players can change the background music at any time so they can listen to their favorite songs while journeying through Hyrule.
- Pack 3: Additional Story Content ($9.99)– Symphony of the Mask – Play as the mysterious Skull Kid and venture through a new map in the third DLC pack, complete with new songs and a new story. Skull Kid also possesses the power to change abilities based on the masks he dons.
A Season Pass containing all three of these DLC packs will be available to purchase starting today for $14.99 (some nice savings right there). Those who purchase the Season Pass will also be getting bonus costumes for Link and Zelda in-game. DLC Packs 2 and 3 will be arriving by the end of October, according to Nintendo. A physical version of Cadence of Hyrule containing the main game and all three DLC packs will launch on October 23 for $39.99.
