'Cuphead' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch Next Month - Trailer

by Rainier on March 20, 2019 @ 9:35 a.m. PDT

Cuphead is a single-player or co-op run-and-gun platformer is heavily focused on boss battles.

Inspired by cartoons of the 1930's, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional cel animation (hand drawn & hand inked!), watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets.

Cuphead is all action, all the time.

Do you have what it takes?

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

What’s more, the game is available for pre-purchase starting today for: $19.99 USD, $25.99 CAD, £16.99, and 19,99€.

In addition to the game’s launch on Switch, a major, free content update will also make its way to all versions of Cuphead (Xbox One, PC, Mac) on the same day.

The new free content update will add both fun surprises and longtime requested features such as: playable Mugman in single-player, new fully animated cutscenes, never-before-seen art and fight intros, ten additional languages, a plethora of bug fixes, and plenty of secrets for players to discover.

"It's no secret that Cuphead is a direct descendent of retro action games like Contra on the NES, so it's surreal to finally have one of our own games on a Nintendo system," said Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer. “We’re beyond thrilled to be able to bring Cuphead to a brand new audience on Nintendo Switch. Playing the game on a console with such a big focus on local co-op really reminds Jared and I of our days gaming together as kids."

Key Features:

  • Fast and challenging action, retro stylings with modern depth
  • Huge, screen filling bosses
  • A wide variety of wacky weapons, supers, and secrets
  • Schmup levels sprinkled throughout to test your skill
  • Amazing hand drawn art in '30s style
  • Original jazz compositions, recorded live
  • Irreverent and wacky sense of humor inspired by 30s cartoons
  • Play as a guy with a cup for a head (or a mug)
  • Simple enough to pick up and play, tuned for speed running
  • Unique parry defense system

Cuphead is currently available on PC and Xbox One, and will be coming to Nintendo Switch on April 18, 2019!
