Fast travel isn't that easyo to unlock in Cadence of Hyrule, but it's an essential trick to have up your sleeve if you want to move around the map quickly. In this Candence of Hyrule fast travel guide, we'll be walking you through how to fast travel in Cadence of Hyrule as easily as possible, through unlocking one simple item.
Cadence of Hyrule Fast Travel
The first thing to know about Cadence of Hyrule is that it's not an easy game. You can't move whenever you want, you need to keep moving with the beat of the music, in accordance with the notes you see passing through the Tri Force at the bottom of the screen. Because of this, it's really easy to get caught out and swarmed by enemies, which also move to the beat of the music.
Throughout the land of Hyrule, while you're playing as either Link or Zelda, you can find Sheikah Stones. You can see an example of one just below, all of which you need to hit with an attack when you find them in order to unlock them for future use. Their future use comes in the form of a fast travel system, which we'll detail how to unlock just below.
How to Unlock Fast Travel in Cadence of Hyrule
Whenever you die in Cadence of Hyrule, you select a Sheikah Stone to respawn at. However, once you've obtained the lute from Cadence, you can go about traveling to any of your previously discovered Sheikah Stones whenever you want, with just the touch of a button.
To find Cadence, you need to head to Lake Hylia, which we've highlighted on the map screen just below. Once you're on this screen, you need to head to the very left edge of the area, where you can attack a Sheikah Stone to unlock a door into a cave.
Inside this cave, you can find Cadence. She'll prompt you to take the lute in the middle of the cave, and once you've retrieved it, it'll bond immediately to any of the face buttons on your Nintendo Switch. From now on, simply press the button that corresponds with the lute in the top right corner of the screen, and you can immediately warp to any previously discovered Sheikah Stone on the map. You might not want to press the lute button in the middle of combat however, as it'll probably result in Link/Zelda being killed while you're strumming out the few notes needed to fast travel.
