What you need to know

  • Cuphead is an old-school run 'n' gun game.
  • Netflix is developing an animated show based on the adventures of the main characters.
  • Xbox Turkey posted an image of Cuphead coming to Xbox Game Pass then deleted it.
  • You can purchase Cuphead for $20 on the Microsoft Store.

Updated February 7, 2020: Microsoft reached out to us and said that this was an error. A spokesperson for the company added, "We're aware of this tweet and can confirm it was removed as this was in error. The team is investigating more details."

Cuphead is a brutally-challenging platformer and shooter rolled into one. The game features visuals that are similar to old-school cartoons, but the animation is much smoother. A few days ago, the team reported that Cuphead sold over four million units across all platforms. It even launched on Nintendo Switch, but that's not where the story ends.

According to a few posts on Reddit, it looks like Xbox Turkey leaked that the game was being added to Xbox Game Pass. As always, take this with a grain of salt until we recieve official confirmation. It may have just been a misunderstanding on the part of Xbox Turkey because the tweet was immediately deleted.
