Cuphead is coming to another popular platform very soon! Today, Studio MDHR announced that its game will land on Nintendo Switch on April 18. Cuphead will also receive a major content update on the same day which adds a host of features to the game. You can preorder it right now for $20.
A classic run-and-gun game with stylized illustrations and boss battles that will make you throw your controller at your screen. It's been called the hardest game ever played by many.
The update adds long-requested features like Mugman as a playable character during the single-player campaign, new animated cutscenes, new fight introductions, additional languages, and bug fixes. Studio MDHR's co-director Chad Moldenhauer commented on the game's Nintendo Switch debut by saying:
According to Microsoft, the team is working with Studio MDHR to implement Xbox Live into the Nintendo Switch version. The company said the following on Xbox Wire:
It seems like online multiplayer may be powered by Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch when it comes to Cuphead. It will probably even feature Xbox Achievements.
A few months ago, we reported that Cuphead has sold over three million units across Xbox One and PC. It also garnered a lot of awards for its animation style. The Nintendo Switch release should push that figure even further.
