"Cuphead" Gets A Nintendo Switch Port, Complete With Xbox Live Support


In addition to the game's launch on Switch, a major, free content update will also make its way to all versions of Cuphead (Xbox One, PC, Mac) on the same day. Legend of Zelda is a departure from Nintendo's standard practices as they've allowed an indie developer to take on one of their quintessential franchises.

The game's full title is "Cadence of Hyrule - Crypt of the NecroDancer feat". That's very uncharacteristic of Nintendo.

The game itself is called Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer featuring The Legend of Zelda and offers up a procedurally generated spin on the setting used in 2D Zelda games like A Link to the Past.

Nintendo hasn't shared any further details about this week's Nindies Showcase, so we don't yet know what games will be featured. Even more excited to see it mashed up with The Legend of Zelda?

Cadence of Hyrule marks a fairly unprecedented step for Nintendo. So equip yourself with an arsenal of iconic Legend of Zelda items, as well as the spells and weapons from Crypt of the Necrodancer. Cadence has her shovel, Link is shown using his sword and arrows, and we see Zelda using a sword, spear, and magic. Nintendo thanked the developers Studio MDHR and Microsoft for bringing the game to Switch.

From now through March 27, Nintendo is offering discounts of up to 30 percent on select indie games in the Nintendo eShop including hits like Moonlighter, Inside, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and Firewatch, just to name a few.

The once previous Xbox console exclusive Cuphead is coming to the Nintendo Switch and it's coming next month.
