Cuphead Heads To The Switch Next Month

Cuphead Heads To The Switch Next Month

Nintendo announced during its Nindies Showcase for GDC 2019 that former Xbox One-console exclusive Cuphead is coming to the Nintendo Switch. There will be a closed beta on April 8th, 2019, but unfortunately it's only set for Steam at the moment.

Cuphead is a platforming inspired heavily by 1930s cartons, the graphics are all hand-drawn and the game has a funky jazz soundtrack.

Studio MDHR announced today via the Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 that Cuphead will land on the Nintendo eShop on April 18, 2019!

Cuphead has sold over three million units across Xbox One and PC. What's more, the game is available for pre-purchase starting today for: $19.99 United States dollars, $25.99 CAD, £16.99, and 19,99€.

New art, new intros, new jingle when you beat a boss with Mugman.

Let's not make 'egg boy' our national hero, please
A GoFundMe page was set up for "Our hero EggBoi", to help cover any "legal fees" and "more eggs". Calls to Anning's electoral and parliamentary offices went unanswered on Sunday.


"As we've been hard at work on Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, we've received so much love from all of our fans that we thought we'd drop one last free content update as just a little thank you", the co-founders of StudioMDHR wrote on Xbox Wire today.

Cuphead launched in September of 2017 on Xbox and PC, to critical acclaim and commercial success.

Microsoft says the company is working with Studio MDHR to integrate Xbox Live into the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

Update: The event is now over, and as expected, it brought word on a whole lot of Switch games.

Cuphead is a tough as nails side-scrolling shoot "em up with a classic animation style that instantly caught people's attention".
