The Cuphead achievement list has been revealed in full

Cuphead is already notorious for its difficulty, defeating hundreds of players at conventions and video game shows across the world. If nothing goes wrong, it should launch on September 29 on Xbox One and Windows 10 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, complete with achievements that roam across devices.

TrueAchievements.com just exclusively revealed the Cuphead achievement list, and some of them look suitably fiendish.

Cuphead evolved from its boss-rush roots into something a little more Contra-like, complete with platforming levels riddled with bullet hell-style shooting gameplay. Achievements like "Perfect Run - Complete a level without getting hit" should prove to be fiendishly difficult, but it doesn't look like Studio MDHR went crazy and included any achievements for avoiding death completely. It sounds as though you're going to die a lot in Cuphead.

You can pre-order and pre-load Cuphead on Xbox One and Windows 10 right now for just $19.99, and we'll have a full review up to let you know whether it's worth the price of admission.

  • So what's this useful for? At best it's a spoiler of the game content.
  • I can imagine a lot of these achievements will never grace my console, but I'll be sure to have fun trying.
