One of the biggest surprises in Nintendo's recent Switch Nindies Showcase was the reveal of Cadence of Hyrule, a Legend of Zelda x Crypt of the Necrodancer mash-up that has Nintendo collaborating with indie developer Brace Yourself. Many are still wondering about how this collab came together. Turns out it all started with two of Nintendo's biggest names.
Believe it or not Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma were big fans of Crypt of the Necrodancer on Switch. Apparently the two played the game constantly, and considered themselves to be quite the fans. After becoming so enthralled with the game, both wanted to learn more about the team that put it together. That desire to learn more about the team is what paved the way for the collaboration!
