Cadence of Hyrule may not be a traditional Legend of Zelda game, but it is full of items from the main series. This includes Zora’s Flippers, which allow characters to swim in Lake Hylia when players manage to collect them in Cadence of Hyrule. Doing so is necessary to complete the game, and so it’s important for Cadence of Hyrule players to figure out where to find the Flippers.
To get the Cadence of Hyrule Flippers, players need to find the Frozen Grotto. While most of the map is randomly generated, it seems as though the Frozen Grotto is usually located two screens south from Hyrule Castle. Players will be able to recognize it because they can walk down onto a beach connected to Lake Hylia itself.
There is a cave on this beach, in the top-left corner of the screen, that players need to enter. Upon entering the cave, players will find a sleeping Zora and five ghosts. Use bombs to kill all of the ghosts, which should wake up the sleeping Zora. Doing this will in turn grant players the Flippers, which they can use to swim in Lake Hylia.
Collecting the Flippers will go a long way in helping players complete the Legend of Zelda/Crypt of the NecroDancer crossover game. However, there are many other important items to collect in Cadence of Hyrule. For example, players are able to collect Deku Seeds from Deku Scrubs, which serve as a sort of currency to get some very important bonuses in the game.
If players manage to collect 10 Deku Seeds and find Tingle in the Lost Woods, they can trade them for a magic meter boost. In fact, Tingle doubles the player’s magic meter, which definitely comes in handy. For those wondering where exactly to find Tingle in the Lost Woods, please refer to our Deku Seed guide.
With a boosted magic meter and Zora’s Flippers, Cadence of Hyrule players should find exploring Hyrule much easier.
Cadence of Hyrule is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
