Cadence of Hyrule Rhythm Mode

Cadence of Hyrule rhythm mode is the main game type in this Legend of Zelda spin-off title. The aim of the game is to take out your enemies by swinging your melee weapon, using your magic, or any other form of attack in time with the music’s beat.

If you want to play Cadence of Hyrule rhythm mode at your own pace, you can. First, bring up the pause menu by, well, hitting pause. Press the “R” button on your Joy-con or Nintendo Switch Pro controller and this will allow you to access “System.”
