Crypt of the NecroDancer is getting a new standalone rhythm game spin-off.
Last month, developer Brace Yourself Games updated its game for the first time in five years and announced that something new was on the way.
And now we know: Rift of the NecroDancer, available to wishlist now on Steam.
“The NecroDancer is back in an all-new rhythm game spin-off, with an all-new look, modern setting, and soundtrack!” reads a tweet from the developer.
“Help Cadence rhythmically mend rifts and battle enemies through a variety of new game modes!”

Rift mode is a battle to close the rift and defeat the emerging monsters.
This appears to include Guitar Hero-style rhythm gameplay, as well as other mini-games and boss fights.
It will also include an all-new soundtrack by Danny Baranowsky and others.
Crypt of the NecroDancer received high praise upon release and was followed by Zelda spin-off Cadence of Hyrule, which received an Essential from Donlan in its review.
“It’s honestly a real banger – a Zelda game to savor. It’s surprising and weird and funny and sad and exciting. And when it’s over, the game that lingers in your memory really does feel like Zelda,” a- he declared.
Rift of the NecroDancer should be the one to watch then.
