'Cuphead' (ALL) Delicious Last Course DLC Delayed Until 2020 - Trailer

by Rainier on July 2, 2019 @ 9:14 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?

While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the Delicious Last Course expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for. We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of Cuphead and is full of moments that surprise and delight players. Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that’s healthy and sustainable for our team.

With that in mind, we’re taking a page out of Chef Saltbaker’s book, and spending the necessary time to get the recipe just right – this means that we’ll be moving the release of The Delicious Last Course to 2020. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we’re confident it’s one that will result in a higher quality experience that’s all the sweeter when it does arrive.

Rest assured, we remain hard at work on this new isle, which will bring a whole bevy of screen-filling bosses, exciting weapons & charms to wallop with, and of course, a brand-new playable character…the lovely Ms. Chalice!

Not only will Ms. Chalice have a distinct play style and unique abilities – like double-jump! – but she’ll be playable across every isle, allowing you to re-experience the original Cuphead in a completely fresh way. We’ve learned so much about animation and really honed our technique during the development of Cuphead, so expect some particularly wacky and wild moments this time around! As well as a few surprises we aren’t prepared to talk about just yet.

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!
