Who could have predicted this? Despite being fully owned by the Microsoft corporation, Studio MDHR’s excellent Cuphead will soon be released on Nintendo Switch! The announcement was made today by the studio during Nintendo’s Indie’s Showcase video. The trailer revealing this is…sure interesting.
Studio MDHR also announced some minor improvements would be added to all versions of Cuphead in the near future, as a manner of preparing the game for the Delicious Last Course DLC (which was announced last year and still has yet to get a release date).
The biggest change in the works: beginning April 18, Mugman will be controllable in single-player mode. You will be able to switch between Cuphead and Mugman at any time during the game (from the main menu) and Mugman will have his own individual level complete jingle.
Some new animations are also coming: the cinema cutscenes will now be fully animated, Cuphead and Mugman will sport multiple fight intros, new background details, explosions and special effects will be added, and additional special effects will be applied to the Legendary Chalice’s granting of Super Arts. The game will also be localized into French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese.
You won’t have to pay for any of these upgrades; they will simply appear with a new update on April 18, the same day the Nintendo Switch version of Cuphead will be available. 23 Skidoo!
