Crypt of the NecroDancer Spinoff Rift of the NecroDancer Gets Trailer, 2023 Release Window

Crypt of the NecroDancer spin-off Rift of the NecroDancer finally gets a trailer and a 2023 release window.

During Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase, publisher Brace Yourself Games unveiled a spinoff for Crypt of the NecroDancer. Titled Rift of the NecroDancer, the new title is also a rhythm game featuring lane-based combat to the beat of the music. Check out the trailer below.

Rift of the NecroDancer will feature different monsters to fight, with each enemy having different attack patterns and rhythms. It will also feature boss fights, as well as special mini games for its five character storylines.

Rift of the NecroDancer was originally announced back in August 2022, and at the time was believed to be a sequel to rhythm-based dungeon crawler Crypt of the NecroDancer. Alongside Rift of the NecroDancer, Brace Yourself Games had also unveiled a major update for Crypt of the NecroDancer.

Rift of the NecroDancer doesn’t yet have a release date aside from a vague 2023 release window. The game is slated to release on PC and Nintendo Switch.
