The release date for Cadence of Hyrule, the upcoming metronomic Zelda adventure from Brace Yourself Games, has unofficially jumped around a few times. But after a few metadata mishaps, a trailer has confirmed at least the month it will launch on Switch: June.
Updates to Cadence's eShop page source code jumped the date around earlier this week, ranging from a surprise launch yesterday to sometime in June. A trailer from Nintendo Indie World, straight from the source, confirms Cadence of Hyrule is in fact coming out for the Nintendo Switch in June.
The hopping, rhythmic Cadence of Hyrule comes from Brace Yourself Games, makers of the similarly percussive Crypt of the Necrodancer. While we're not sure yet whether this crossover with Crypt is also a roguelike or more of an adventure in line with the Legend of Zelda, from these clips alone we can see the look is already captured. And considering the excellent soundtrack for Necrodancer, I have high hopes for Cadence's tunes to score my news writing for months to come.
Cadence of Hyrule was only just announced back in March, so despite not getting the surprise launch some were hoping for yesterday, this is a pretty quick turnaround.

Or if you're really impatient, there's a Pokemon Sword and Shield Direct set for next week, just ahead of E3.
