'Cuphead' (ALL) The Delicious Last Course DLC Delayed

by Rainier on Nov. 26, 2020 @ 1:33 a.m. PST

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?

In the wake of the ongoing global pandemic affecting so many, Studio MDHR have decided to delay the release of The Delicious Last Course until further notice.

While the Delicious Last Course is a continuation of Cuphead and Mugman's grand adventure, it's also a conclusion to this story that began on that fateful day at The Devil's Casino.

In true Studio MDHR fashion, we aren't content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work.  Throughout development, we've challenged ourselves to put everything we learned from making Cuphead into the quality of the Delicious Last Course's animation, design, and music.

Meeting this standard has been extremely challenging for us amid the global pandemic that has affected so many of our fellow developers.  Rather than compromising on our vision in response to COVID, we've made the difficult decision to push back the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident that will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel it should.

We know many of you have been waiting to return to the Inkwell Isles, and our goal is to make the trip back their next year the truly magical one.

With our warmest regards,

Chad and Jared Moldenhauer.
