In a short YouTube video on Monday morning, Nintendo debuted the first of its Partner Showcase series with a brand new Nintendo Direct Mini.

Below is the full list of announcements from this morning’s Nintendo Direct Mini.

Cadence of Hyrule DLC

Cadence of Hyrule, the roguelike rhythm game featuring The Legend of Zelda from Brace Yourself Games and Nintendo, is getting three DLC packs. The first is a character pack, adding more iconic characters such as Impa, Aria, Shadow Link, Shadow Zelda, and Frederick. The second is a melody pack and will include 39 new songs and remixes from composers FamilyJules, A_Rival, and Chipzel. Players will be able to change the background music at any time to play along to their favorite songs. The third and final pack, called Symphony of the Mask, stars Skull Kid and adds new story content. Players will control Skull Kid on new maps that feature new songs. Skull Kid will be able to change his abilities throughout the story based on which mask he’s wearing.

The first pack will be available later today, July 20. The rest will be available by October. Additionally, fans can also purchase the Season Pass today, which will grant access to all DLC content at launch and bonus costumes for both Link and Zelda. A version of the game with all three DLC packs included will release on October 23.
