Cuphead hits more than 1 million copies sold

Studio MDHR, the developer behind Cuphead, has taken to a new blog post to announce the milestone, which comes just two weeks after the game launched. The studio also thanked fans for helping it cross the threshold so quickly. From StudioMDHR:

Hello friends! Cuphead has only been out for two weeks and we never could have dreamed of the reception we've received from our amazing fans! Today, we wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your support and we're excited to share that Cuphead has gone platinum with over 1 million units sold!We have worked tirelessly over the past few years to deliver a game that remained true to our vision and we are both humbled and excited that so many people from around the world are playing Cuphead – it truly makes it all worth it.From all of us at StudioMDHR, thanks again for your support!

Cuphead had a long journey to release, and it subsequently ended up being one of the most anticipated Xbox launches in some time. That's due in part to Cuphead's unique look, which mimics the aesthetic of cartoons from the 1930s. While the difficult gameplay may not be everyone's cup of tea, Cuphead is certainly a unique title to say the least.

If you have yet to give Cuphead a shot, you can grab it now as an Xbox Play Anywhere title for Xbox One and Windows 10 for $19.99. Also check out our full, in-depth Cuphead review for more.
