  • In 2018, a DLC pack called The Delicious Last Course was announced.

In 2018, Studio MDHR announced a DLC pack for Cuphead called The Delicious Last Course. According to a new listing that has appeared on Xbox.com, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course may be released tomorrow. In the image you can see below, the DLC is clearly described as being available now.

As of the time of this article being written, the image appears at the official Xbox listing for Cuphead (opens in new tab). Following the link just leads to the standard edition of the game though. A teaser trailer released in 2019 said that the DLC was coming in 2020 and there's been no news of a delay since then.

In addition to this incriminating image, Geoff Keighley, host of the Game Awards, has announced a new update coming tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. ET from "one of our favorite indie studios." We'll be sure to cover the announcement, which seems likely to be the surprise reveal that the DLC is now available. A PS4 version may also be coming, as listings were spotted on PSN before being pulled.

The Delicious Last Course is described as adding an additional island for players to explore with all-new bosses to fight as well as new weapons and charms to acquire. It also adds the ability to play as a third character, Ms. Chalice.

Update, July 28 (7:10 a.m. ET) — Unfortunate phrasing

According to someone from ID@Xbox, this listing was put up by mistake and does not indicate the DLC being made available soon.

  • According to some tweets it's coming also on PS4. Big mistake that Microsoft didn't kept that game as exclusive. And yes I know one year ago they ported it to Nintendo Switch...
  • The mistake was to mislead and lie to people saying that it is a lifetime exclusive.

    Where people continuously said it was never coming to PS4.
    Even when they announced Delicious Last Course at E3 2018, they said it was a console launch exclusive. That also turned out to be bs, it's coming to all platforms at the same time. I don't know how people can take MS seriously when they talk about exclusives.
  • Don't announce a DLC and release it 2 years after, please. Unless it is Cuphead 2 disguised.
